iNode™: Sensors and Crowdsourced Traffic Data

The iNode™ from SMATS Traffic Solutions is a robust processing system that employs modern filtering and data mining algorithms to deliver accurate and detailed traffic data from the customer’s collected Wi-Fi and Bluetooth samples.

Through SMATS API, the data is conveyed to iNode™, where it is automatically simplified and examined efficiently, saving time for users and preventing any effect of human error that could influence data output.

iNode™ offers instantaneous data processing from scanners and historical data from Crowdsourced, helping customers to make data-powered decisions to minimize delay times by nearly 50%, within their current infrastructure capabilities. By using iNode™, users can update scanner choices such as activity level and turn scanners on/off directly from any location.

iNode™ Features and Applications

Real-Time Traffic Map

Coupled with the TrafficXHub™, the iNode™ offers insights into traffic information as it is instantly gathered.

Role-Based User Management

The iNode™ offers managers the capacity to regulate and restrict user access within the system.

Remote Control and Configuration

Within iNode™, users can remotely adjust scanning settings and structures of their installed TrafficXHub scanners.

Raw Data Export

Users can access and send out the raw data they gather, providing total control over their samples.

Sensor Status Indicator

Users can view statistics or updates instantly on the status of their deployed TrafficXHub™ scanners.

Robust and Advanced Filtering Algorithm

The smart and comprehensive iNode™ filtering algorithm eliminates all the outliers from the data.

Origin Destination Reports

The MAC address detection features of the SMATS scanners can be exploited to produce automated origin destination reports.

Signal Optimization

Signal timing can be optimized on a steady basis using iNode’s™ integral algorithms, coupled with TrafficXHub™ data.

Travel Time Calculation

The MAC address detection features of the SMATS scanners can be exploited to produce computerized travel time calculations and reports.

Queue Management

Wait-time delays in queues at borders, ports, or other facilities can be quantified and optimized.

iNode™ and Crowdsourced Traffic Data

The iNode™ goes beyond just data collection and analysis with the ability to extract live and historical traffic data from third-party crowdsourced data systems.

It is an extra tool for transportation managers, states, and cities to help track and govern how traffic moves.

Live and Historical Data Analytics

The iNode™ can collect real-time travel time data and carry out historical analysis using data back to the time the virtual link is initiated.

Functional Applications

Access to crowdsourced data would suit applications such as before/after studies with traffic signal advancement and traffic simulation model calibration.

Validated Data Accuracy

In field experiments, SMATS has verified that crowdsourced data is accurate for main roads and is ideal for instant traffic tracking applications and historical analysis.

Quick and Easy Installation

No hardware is needed to access crowdsourced data, and configuration with the iNode™ is simple and quick.
