Numetric Announces Project Design App and New Platform Features to Improve Roadway Investments and Reduce Fatalities

Numetric answers traffic safety agencies’ request for new application and features to empower transportation organizations to be more data-driven.

Silicon Slopes, Utah – July 15, 2019 — Numetric, the Traffic Safety Analytics Solution Provider, announced the launch of the Project Design application to help transportation engineers automate and accelerate the process of calculating cost estimates for roadway pavement projects. Numetric also adds two new, innovative features, Intersections and Comparison Reports, to its existing suite of applications to help traffic safety professionals identify their most dangerous, as well as compare crash reports year over year to measure safety progress.

State and local traffic agencies continue to rely on data analysis to improve the effectiveness of their spending to ensure it goes where it is needed most and to eliminate serious and fatal crashes. The community of transportation safety professionals has needed tools that empower more targeted analysis and gauge safety progress or the lack thereof. For example, 40% of crashes occur at intersections, and now, for the first time, traffic safety groups can effectively identify the most dangerous intersections, prioritize solutions and more easily identify the solutions that will make the most impact.

“These updates are something transportation and traffic safety groups have desired for quite some time,” said Danny Anderson, Vice President of Product at Numetric. “As these groups make improvements, they often struggle to answer a critical question like ‘Are we doing well?’ or they worry about going over-budget as they construct roadway projects. Our new updates alleviate these challenges.”

Each of the new additions is specifically designed to address the needs of transportation engineers and traffic safety professionals:

· Project Design: Creating reliable cost estimates for roadway projects can be challenging and time-consuming. This new application helps to improve the accuracy of project budgets and create more data-driven estimates, allowing for agencies, engineers, and managers to spend funds more effectively and intelligently.

· Comparison Reports: Answering questions about the success of traffic safety projects can be difficult, and professionals have needed a way to answer those questions more easily. Comparison Reports help gauge the effectiveness of safety decisions, report on the results of improvements and better understand which factors contribute most often to fatal crashes.

·  Intersections: Nearly half of traffic crashes occur at intersections, but with current tools, it’s nearly impossible to do a targeted analysis of intersections. With this new feature, traffic safety professionals can easily analyze intersection crashes and the best ways to prevent them – for the first time.

Each added feature and application that Numetric adds to their suite empowers agencies to more effectively use funds. Numetric is dedicated to providing agencies with these capabilities in order to save more lives on our roadways.

The launch of Project Design, Intersections, and Comparison Reports are available today. For more information about Numetric, visit www.numetric.com.

Numetric Continues Commitment to Traffic Safety with Support of the Vision Zero Network

The Vision Zero Network and Numetric aim to reach zero fatalities and reduce the number of preventable traffic collisions that happen each year.

Silicon Slopes, Utah – June 24, 2019 — Numetric, the Traffic Safety Analytics Solution Provider, announced today a new partnership with the Vision Zero Network to help cities across the U.S. become more data-driven in their traffic safety decisions and reach Vision Zero’s commitment to providing safe mobility, whether driving, walking, bicycling, using a wheelchair or riding transit. The Vision Zero Network is a nonprofit collaborative campaign helping communities reach their goal of eliminating all traffic fatalities and severe injuries while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all.

In 2017, 37,133 people died on U.S. streets from traffic collisions, and thousands more were injured. Numetric and the Vision Zero Network believe that traffic deaths are preventable and that saving lives does not need to be expensive. Many cities lack the tools and data access needed to effectively target dangerous roadways or measure the effectiveness of the improvements they have already implemented. The efforts of Numetric and the Vision Zero Network aim to empower cities to keep leaders and communities informed, focus on the changes that will most prevent traffic fatalities, and reach their zero-fatality goals faster.

“We are eager to become a part of the Vision Zero Network and work alongside community leaders who are as passionate about road safety as we are,” said Nate Bowler, Numetric Chief Executive Officer. “This partnership is exciting because we can help communities identify trends that are occurring on their roadways and build greater transparency around traffic safety.”

Numetric’s tools will make it easier for cities to provide important data to community leaders so that they can make smarter decisions around the policies and practices that will ensure safer mobility for all. Ultimately, Vision Zero cities will be able to have greater confidence and consensus around their traffic safety decisions.

“We are honored to have Numetric’s support because we recognize that collaboration between the public and private sectors is critical, particularly in better leveraging data to help cities prevent traffic fatalities and severe injuries,” said Leah Shahum, Vision Zero Network Founder and Director.

The Vision Zero concept started in Sweden in 1997 and has expanded throughout Europe and to more than 40 major U.S. communities, including Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles, Boston, and Seattle. The Vision Zero Network identifies the critical components of a strong Vision Zero commitment to include: political commitment, multi-disciplinary leadership, a strong action plan, a focus on equity, cooperation and collaboration, a system-based and data-driven approach, meaningiful community engagement, and transparency. These components, combined with a sense of urgency, are showing promise in communities across the world in making progress toward safer mobility for all.

The partnership between Vision Zero Network and Numetric is a demonstration of the importance of empowering traffic safety professionals to be more efficient and data-driven in their efforts, as part of Vision Zero’s underlying Safe Systems approach.

Safety Analytics Application

Numetric Launches Safety Analytics Application that Helps Save More Lives and Makes Roadways Safer

Innovative tool that aims to put safety back into the spotlight and reduce crash fatalities

Silicon Slopes, Utah – Apr. 2, 2019 — Numetric, the Traffic Safety Analytics Solution Provider, announced the launch of its new Safety Analysis application that significantly reduces the costs and time state and local agencies incur while accomplishing their goal to ensure roadways become safer, and traffic fatalities are reduced.

The Numetric Safety Analysis application helps engineers and designers diagnose crash causes and provide recommendations for roadway improvement more quickly, allowing the safety analysis process to address all roadway projects rather than a select few. Today, agencies are taxed by spending significant time and resources that are already scarce, to diagnose the root causes of crashes and try to create effective solutions to help remedy those crashes, a process that is a critical part of the safety management cycle. Safety engineers and designers often are left with having to prioritize roadway projects for evaluation since this arduous process consumes precious resources. Numetric’s new app helps solve this situation.

“This Safety Analysis app helps agencies put safety back into the spotlight,” said Danny Anderson, Vice President of Product at Numetric. “Unfortunately, some agencies have no other choice than to proceed with new projects without a safety report because of limited resources. However, with this new app, agencies no longer have to choose which projects will or won’t receive this critical analysis. This app is the first of its kind and the only one available to actually present suggested solutions.”

Using roadway data provided by state and local agencies, Numetric’s web-based application serves a list of recommended solutions based on built-in calculations pulled directly from the Highway Safety Manual (HSM), which is a publication of the American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials. The HSM contains concepts, guidelines and algorithms for analyzing crash frequency prediction and is incorporated into every state’s roadway planning, design, operations and maintenance decisions.

The Safety Analysis app leverages the HSM to give safety engineers and designers a starting point for exploration into safety solutions, as well as automatically calculate the cost-benefit ratio of improvements to particular roadway segments – right down to the mile marker. This allows the designer or engineer to mix and match treatments to find the combination that will prevent the most crashes.

Utah Department of Transportation has elected to use the Safety Analysis application at launch.

“UDOT’s focus is always to improve safety on Utah’s roadways, and that is why we have partnered with Numetric to build the Safety Analysis application,” said Jeff Lewis, Safety Programs Engineer, UDOT Traffic and Safety. “The application helps make it easier and more accessible for everyone working on roadway projects in Utah to focus on and invest in improving roadway safety.”

The development of this app continues a trend of new product releases from Numetric demonstrating the company’s commitment to unlocking traffic safety agencies’ data to allow them to more effectively convert safety funds into saved lives.

Network Screening Application

Numetric’s New Network Screening Application Surpasses Federal Safety Requirements, Empowering States to Prevent Roadway Deaths

Innovative new tool promises to fuel faster analysis, smarter targeting of states’ most dangerous roads

Silicon Slopes, Utah – Jan. 10, 2019 — Numetric, the Traffic Safety Analytics Solution Provider, announced the launch of its new Network Screening application to empower states to meet and even exceed federal requirements and identify their most dangerous roadways.

Due to a current lack of sufficient tools, the process of manually ranking roadways takes weeks or even months for most states. This makes effective networking screening infeasible for groups at regional, county, and city levels, preventing them from making the most informed resource investments to reduce crashes. Numetric’s Network Screening application promises to eliminate this problem by enabling state and local agencies to rank their roadways in minutes by the attributes that matter most to them, and pinpoint the most effective ways to reduce traffic deaths on those roadways.

“Reducing roadway fatality rates depends on better tools that produce more useful insights and empowers more informed decisions in how we spend precious resources to save as many lives as possible on our roads,” said Nate Bower, CEO of Numetric. “The release of our new Network Screening solution makes it clear that a data-science, automation-driven approach is the way forward. This new tool—and many more to come—promise to unlock states’ traffic safety data and empower them to more quickly identify areas that could receive the greatest benefit from improvement.”

Numetric’s unique analytics platform makes it possible for users to filter through millions of pieces of data with unparalleled flexibility and speed. For example, in the Network Screening application, users can see in seconds the most crash-prone roadways in a specific county during a specific month where teens and alcohol were involved. A standard federally-required network screening report can be produced in just seconds, instead of months.

This launch continues a trend of new product releases from Numetric demonstrating the company’s commitment to unlocking traffic safety agencies’ data to allow them to more effectively convert safety funds into saved lives. The company plans to release additional applications, including tools for Safety Analysis, Project Design, and Automated FHWA HSIP Reporting, throughout 2019.

suites for public transportation agencies

Numetric announces new generation of safety and design suites for public transportation agencies

Traffic safety analytic solutions provider releases new product suites to improve the roadway safety management process

Silicon Slopes, Utah – October 25, 2018— Numetric, the traffic safety analytics company, announced the launch of two new product suites to align its offerings with the Roadway Safety Management Process and solidify its commitment to empowering public transportation agencies to be more efficient, data-driven, and focused on improving the safety of roadways and saving lives.

Numetric’s newest generation of software includes the Safety Suite—which empowers public transportation agencies to tackle Network Screening, Diagnosis, and Countermeasure Selection with confidence—and the Design Suite—which accelerates Economic Appraisals and Project Prioritization. This release also introduces Crash Reports—the industry’s easiest and fastest way to accurately fulfill crash requests—and more intuitive visualizations, making it easier than ever for DOTs and other public transportation agencies to drill into, understand, and act on their traffic data throughout the Roadway Safety Management Process.

“Our new apps offer the insights needed by traffic safety organizations to get answers in minutes, not days or weeks,” said Nate Bower, CEO of Numetric. “Our goal is to help every traffic safety organization make data-driven decisions when budgeting resources to improve the function and safety of roadways.”

Numetric enables its customers to share information—which updates in real-time as new data is entered by the state’s agencies—in a way that makes it possible for municipalities, police departments, and transportation agencies to baseline and track their progress in meeting their roadway safety goals.

“Numetric has become an invaluable resource,” said Joseph Weiss, transportation safety analyst at Rutgers University’s Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation. “The Numetric platform, tailored specifically to our industry, let us take a data-driven approach to making our roadways safer. We can quickly pull these numbers and dive deep enough to get a real picture of what’s taking place on our roadways. The platform helps us not only see the data, but act on it.”

Numetric’s platform is already making a difference in crash data analysis and trend reporting by presenting large amounts of data in formats that are easy to read, understand, and share.

According to Kevin Bartells, head of the Safe Corridors Unit for the New Jersey State Police, Numetric has helped him go above and beyond in delivering useful data to police departments which increased his credibility and trust among stakeholders.

“I’ve actually been able to tell these police departments, ‘I can get that data, literally, in a couple minutes’,” said Bartells. “I’ll give them information they’re looking for, plus some. Numetric has made it so simple.”

According to Numetric, this launch is just the first of many releases that will be aimed at making public transportation agencies more effective in turning safety funds into saved lives, at every point of Roadway Safety Management Process, from Network Screening to Safety Effectiveness Evaluation.
