StreetLight Data releases 2018 average daily traffic counts

Analytics platform StreetLight Data has released its 2018 Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) for more than 4 million miles of roadway. It’s the fastest the company has released its count of how many cars, trucks and bikes navigate urban and rural roads.

StreetLight Data uses record locations from smartphones, connected cars and trucks and analyzes the data based on speed, location on the street and land use patterns. The resulting traffic count is given to government and business partners on StreetLight Data’s platform.

“As transportation is changing more dynamically, the need for more affordable, accurate metrics is bigger than ever,” StreetLight Data CEO Laura Schewel told Smart Cities Dive in an interview.
