KIRKLAND, Wash. – November 18, 2019 – INRIX, Inc., a global leader of connected car services and transportation analytics, today announced the extension of its collaboration with BMW Group to provide INRIX driving services, including real-time parking, traffic and travel alerts.
Powered by the INRIX network of hundreds of million connected vehicles and devices, BMW ConnectedDrive® with Real-Time Traffic Information provides drivers with real-time and predictive traffic for routes, travel times, and crash and incident alerts. INRIX also provides its award-winning on-street parking service, which uses historical and up-to-the-minute parking data to predict the availability of parking spaces.
Beyond traffic and travel alerts, Intermodal Navigation and EV Range Spider services for BMW’s electric vehicles are also included in the extension. Intermodal Navigation integrates local public transportation schedules into the route planning and monitors real-time traffic conditions, alerting drivers to faster alternative modes of transportation when major delays occur along their routes. EV Range Spider gives drivers an accurate estimation of how far they can travel, taking into account local traffic conditions, route topography and current battery charge.
