Several third-party data vendors provide traffic data for a variety of transportation purposes. Speed data from probes is used by some agencies on arterials to assist in overall operations. ENTERPRISE members are interested in understanding the accuracies of probe data on arterials to support deploying or expanding for real-time use. Another area of interest for agencies is to understand the accuracies for supporting performance assessment functions.
This research will help ENTERPRISE members understand which agencies have tested third-party probe speed data on arterials, the accuracies reported, and their uses of this data for arterial operations (real-time or post analyses).
