Data is becoming more and more important in the effective delivery of our transport networks. The provision of relevant information enables data driven decisions that improve how our networks operate and increase safety for all.
The level of connectivity between systems that cloud-based technology allows is vital to the way data is collected, stored and used, can support the delivery of improved transport services while also reducing costs of delivery.
Coeval products and systems collect and store data, some of which can be collected locally, others can be accessed via our Cloud- based software. For example, information on the number of over-height vehicles that turn around when seeing the warning can be important in network analysis because traffic affects travel times, which in turn affect results. Information such as average speeds can be captured, enabling users to adjust signs based on the statistics.
The flexibility afforded by Cloud-based technology is bolstered by its ability to gather and communicate important data that can be invaluable in the maintenance and improvement of our transport networks.
‘Even a short closure of the tunnel causes great congestion in the area, and if an over height vehicle were to cause that level of damage, the tunnel could be closed for hours, if not days, which would bring the whole of the South East of England to a standstill.
When the Coeval over height vehicle detectors were first installed, we were talking about 10’s of vehicles a day that we were stopping; we are now down to low single figures, 4 or 5 vehicles a day we need to extract for being over height, so it’s a great improvement in efficiency through the crossing.’
‘Having used Coeval for the first time, we found them to be friendly and really helpful in ensuring we received the correct item we required. We were happy with the extremely quick response times and professional service they offer. We would definitely recommend their services to others.’
‘Thank you for your prompt and efficient service regarding our request for training on the 21st of August. You guys have been incredibly helpful over this.’
‘Coeval won the tender for the replacement overheight vehicle detector systems. The work was completed within programme and budget. We are now satisfied that the new systems will help protect the bridges for several years to come.’
‘A sound, honest and efficient service provided by Coeval. Would be very happy for Coeval to manufacture and supply more of Swindon’s signs.’
