Get your traffic data processed online

HOTS is an abbreviation of Hermes Online Traffic Services, which is a powerful web-based platform for the presentation of processed traffic data.

The HOTS platform It has been released with these two services:

  1. Road Surfaces Quality
  2. Bike path Surface Quality

A number of other services for the HOTS platform are planned.

Road Surface Quality

Road Surface Quality (RSQ) is based on crowd sourced data. The surface quality is measured using a smartphone app. The smartphone is fixed to the windscreen of a car, and the app measures the vibrations of the car while driving. By collecting data from multiple smartphones in the same area, the system estimates the quality of the road surface of each stretch of the road network.

A specific HOTS subscription for the Road Surface Quality is necessary to see the actual measurements. For the demo user the road surface quality of an area north of Copenhagen, Denmark, is available at no charge.

Bike-path Surface Quality

Customers who have requested a measurement of the surface quality of bike paths in a given area may see the results of their request using the HOTS platform. The results are shown as colours on the bike path according to the measured quality. A video snippet showing the actual bike path when measured is also displayed on the platform.

A specific HOTS subscription for the Bike-path Surface Quality is necessary to see the actual measurements. For the demo user the bike-path surface quality of an area north of Copenhagen, Denmark, is available at no charge.

More features on these data are planned for later releases.

Bicycle Insights, Knowledge, and Evaluation

With the Bicycle Insights, Knowledge, and Evaluation™ (BIKE™) service we bring bicycle data from a number of providers to end-users at the municipal level.

The HOTS™ BIKE™ service has not yet been releaqsed. It is planned for 2021.

Digital Map Quality Assessment

Digital maps come from a plethora of sources, many with distinct historic origins. We have designed tools for performing quality assurance on individual digital maps or on couplings between maps. This knowledge is vital as the applied technology becomes more and more dependent on automatic and consistent processing. The Digital Map Quallity Assessment (DMQ) results can be presented on the HOTS platform for direct visual realization of issues and assessment results.

The HOTS DMQ service has not yet been released. It is planned for 2021.
