Cambridge Consultants has developed Olio, a data analysis system to improve intelligent transport systems (ITS).

The system can be deployed for highway information displays, journey planning tools or any other intelligent transport system that relies heavily on multiple data feeds, the company said.

Olio enhances these applications by processing data from different sources using a statistical approach and displaying the output via an intuitive user interface.

Olio builds company’s work with the UK Highways Agency, combining video and roadway detector data to identify incidents, and the new data analysis system can be incorporated into a variety of services.

The system will provide accurate traffic information for drivers, better information to feed advanced traffic management systems, and fleet management information to optimise parameters such as arrival time, fuel consumption and servicing schedules.
