See how our clients have used our Road Intelligence tools to improve and better understand road safety, city planning, and infrastructure.
A traffic control company was implementing controls to facilitate safety for road users. For that purpose, a lane required to be closed and the company needed to determine whether a road safety barrier was required to protect all road users including workers and pedestrians.
The insight from the Brakepoint platform provided the information to support the application of additional road safety measures at the traffic control site based on the analysis of the vehicles trajectories. The high swerving of vehicles shown in Brakepoint confirmed that the work site required additional control measures, such as a road safety barrier. The Traffic Management plan was adjusted based on the g-force information improving safety for all road users.
A Compass client wanted to understand driver behaviour and private vehicle speed profiles on a series of six harsh road bends on Moss Vale Rd in the Kangaroo Valley. The Compass Brakepoint platform was able to show that drivers experienced high G-forces on the series of road bends, in both travel directions. Further insights found that swerving happened regularly, and graphical evidence in the web app showed violent driving behaviour.
