Moonshadow Mobile Partners with INRIX to Deliver Powerful Travel Pattern Analytics Platform

Novi, MI – June 4, 2018 – Today, Moonshadow Mobile, Inc. announced a partnership with INRIX, the world leader in transportation analytics and connected car services, to incorporate INRIX Trips Reports into Moonshadow’s DB4IoT platform. The solution offers transportation agencies an intuitive, cloud- based origin-destination analytics platform for understanding the trips consumers and fleets make over time on maps, charts, graphs and animations.

“DB4IoT with INRIX Trips transforms and optimizes operations for departments of transport and public transit agencies, informs short- and long-term transportation planning and engineering efforts, and unleashes the potential of connected vehicle data,” said Eimar Boesjes, CEO at Moonshadow Mobile. “The addition of INRIX Trips data to DB4IoT will shed light on existing infrastructure usage, pinpoint challenges and […]

Making Better Transit Planning Decisions by Identifying ITS Data Errors

Over the last few decades public transit agencies have installed CAD/AVL systems on their buses for Computer Aided Dispatch and Automatic Vehicle Location. CAD/AVL systems capture data measurements of the location of the bus, number of passengers, delay, speed and many other variables, often as frequently as every five seconds. The result is a huge trove of data that can provide a wealth of information and insights about the operation of a transit agency. Data in these large quantities, however, always contains a significant number of errors. If charts, graphs and even complete dashboard solutions are based on faulty data they can lead to erroneous conclusions about drive times, speeds, delays, headway and other aspects of transit operation.

  • TransPort Making Traffic Data Accessible 1

Presentation to Portland TransPort

Moonshadow’s CEO, Eimar Boesjes, delivered a presentation last week to TransPort, a subcommittee of TPAC (the Portland, OR region’s Transportation Policy Alternatives Committee). TransPort is a regional forum for cooperative planning and deployment of new transportation system management and operations technologies.

Boesjes teamed up with A.J. O’Connor and Steve Callas from TriMet on a panel discussion about transit data in DB4IoT and the different ways to look at transit data to improve system operations. An example of the collaborative efforts between Moonshadow, TriMet and DKS Associates was discussed with those in attendance.

Making Traffic Data Accessible

Moonshadow Mobile has developed DB4IoT, a database engine purpose-built for the Internet of Moving Things (IoMT).

Last week, Moonshadow’s CEO, Eimar Boesjes, presented DB4IoT at NAAUM 2017, the North American Aimsun Users’ Meeting in Portland, Oregon.

Moving vehicles generate enormous amounts of data. IoMT data isn’t Big Data, it is Bigger Data. To look at moving vehicles at a resolution of less than one meter of movement you need 50 measurements per second. At this rate a single car generates 180,000 timestamped records per hour of driving. To look at traffic flows at the micro level you need to be able to visualize databases with hundreds of millions of records.DB4IoT can instantly visualize databases with tens of thousands of moving objects […]

Route Analyst CAD/AVL:
Creating Speed and Delay Maps from CAD/AVL Data

Route Analyst CAD/AVL is a breakthrough technology that gives transportation engineers and planners the ability to view hundreds of millions of movement points instantly and show exactly when and where traffic is slowing down bus movement and creating service delays.

Public transit agencies are tasked with moving as many passengers as possible from one place to another as quickly and predictably as possible. It is very important for transit agencies to understand how well they are performing this task and how they can improve travel times and predictability. With Route Analyst CAD/AVL transit agencies can look at each individual route over time and maps simultaneously to analyze how driving speeds, travel delays, passenger loads and headway change. This helps transit agencies identify […]
