Every day, Expressway Authorities must make critical decisions — often times without sufficiently accurate and transparent data. At the same time, they may be losing revenue due to reporting latency and the inability to respond when toll plaza sensors are down. Hortonworks DataFlow (HDF™) and Hortonworks Data Platform (HDP®), can help resolve these challenges by making data less expensive, better organized and more readily available.
Toll Plaza sensors capture and stream transaction data into a Hortonworks cluster. If sensors malfunction, transactions may be lost. In situations like this, the ability to respond immediately can have a huge impact on an Agency’s revenue.
Hortonworks DataFlow can determine if transactions are incomplete and trigger real-time alerts, enabling traffic analysts to respond more promptly to unexpected changes.
Enriching Hortonworks DataFlow for realtime ingestion with historical data in Hortonworks Data Platform, you will find trends in traffic patterns over time. You can compare fluctuations in volume over holidays and weekends.
Advanced Analytics are possible by running your own traffic data through data science algorithms to predict future volume and revenue.
In a typical setting, traffic analysts monitor, transform, and report on traffic data. But often, this is a manual or batch process introducing latency between traffic events and the ability to respond.
Hortonworks DataFlow automates the collection, filtering, and mapping of various types of traffic payloads such as XML and images, allowing analysts to focus on improving response time and reporting, instead of labor intensive data ingestion, mapping and transformation.
As traffic volumes increase, storage costs are reduced by storing data in Hortonworks Data Platform, designed to run on low-cost, commodity hardware or in the cloud.
