KIRKLAND, Wash. – May 20, 2008 – INRIX®, the leading provider of traffic information, today announced the availability of INRIX Total Fusion, the first traffic data service that intelligently combines real-time, predictive and historical traffic information to provide speeds for busy city streets and congested arterials in addition to major freeways and the entire interstate highway system. Leveraging the company’s unique real-time information it gathers from over 800,000 GPS-enabled taxis, service vehicles, airport shuttle services and other commercial vehicles as well as consumer cellular GPS-based devices traveling on intra- and inter-city roads, INRIX Total Fusion delivers the most accurate speeds available across 800,000 miles of roadways across the U.S.. The solution is available as part of INRIX Connected Services, announced separately today.
INRIX Total Fusion traffic can be easily integrated with navigation applications and advanced route planning solutions to determine accurate arrival time estimates, optimal routes, the best time to start a route, or even trigger alerts on traffic changes enroute. Using the new INRIX Developer Zone and application programming interfaces (APIs), automobile and portable navigation device OEMs can gain direct access to the best available traffic information for nearly a million miles of roads.
“Our customers have been asking us to provide the best available traffic information we have on major arterials and downtown city streets, along with our coverage of freeways and highways,” commented Bryan Mistele, INRIX president and CEO. “INRIX’s bellwether approach to traffic information technology, along with years of research and data mining, has made it first-to-market with this breakthrough in traffic coverage.”
INRIX Total Fusion will be available in June, 2008 on the new INRIX Developer Zone at devzone.inrix.com, announced separately today.
