What is your data frequency?

Compass has incredibly low data latency, with data pipelines of latencies under 100 milliseconds. Customers using the real-time API can receive data every 5 seconds.

What locations do you service?

Compass IoT provides connected vehicle data across the UK, EU, New Zealand, Australia, and Singapore. Compass can provide data across metro, regional, and rural areas.

What are the privacy constraints around the data?

Compass IoT's Road Intelligence data is anonymous aggregated connected vehicle data, meaning it cannot be traced back to an individual. There are also special privacy constraints applied to the data, including clipping the origin and final destination of a vehicle. VIN-level data is never collected, stored, or used without explicit unambiguous consent from vehicle owners.
