wejo was founded with the global ambition to be the world’s largest connected car company. To date, wejo has curated over 140 billion miles of data and expects to have 17 million cars on its platform by the end of the year. With more than 15 billion data points every day and counting, wejo trusts Databricks to deliver ML-powered innovations to the automotive industry, and deliver better driving experiences.
In order to drive value to the customer, wejo ingests streaming data across 50 million connected vehicles, processing data from OEMs and satellite navigation systems every three seconds. This data provides insights into improving traffic flow, reducing accidents, safety alerts and emergency services, right through to new innovations in optimizing parking. With various data streams coming in from multiple disjointed sources, harnessing the insights from the data through data science is very difficult and resource-intensive.
Databricks provides wejo with a unified data analytics platform that has fostered a scalable and collaborative environment across data science and engineering, allowing data teams to more quickly innovate and deliver ML-powered innovations to the automotive industry.
With Databricks, wejo is now able to do large-scale data processing and machine learning faster and cheaper. But most importantly, they are now able to easily share the output across the team and the organization — enabling others to drive innovation into the market.
Before Databricks, the time to market would’ve been weeks, if not months to meet the analysis requirements for some of our customers. Now, it takes hours.”
