How does our technology work?

Compass uses Cloud Connected Vehicle data to generate granular insights into origin-destination mapping, speeding, swerving, braking, speed, and near-misses that happen on our roads.

Using Connected Vehicles means the data comes from the vehicles themselves, making it more accurate and removing the need for external hardware such as cameras or phones. We aggregate this data and apply machine learning algorithms to generate meaningful insights, and map them using OSM data.


What is a Cloud Connected Vehicle?

A Cloud Connected Vehicle is one that connects to the internet, other devices, or smart sensors and has the capability to send data between these networks. This includes vehicle-to-cloud (V2C) data.

The first instance of a Connected Vehicle was developed by General Motors in 1996 for emergency vehicle applications. Now, most new passenger, private, and freight vehicles from 2014 onwards are considered to have a level of Cloud Connectivity.


Where does our data come from?

Our data comes from different vehicle Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). We aggregate this data and apply machine learning algorithms to generate meaningful insights.


What is the scope of our data?

Compass has data for virtually every single road, across Australia. This includes urban centres such as Sydney or Melbourne, all the way out to Alice Springs and in between. The data we collect includes:
