KIRKLAND, Wash., Oct. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- INRIX, Inc., the leading global provider of traffic information and driver services, today introduced INRIX XD™ Traffic -- a major breakthrough in traffic intelligence that significantly improves the accuracy of traffic information in a service covering twice as many roads compared to what's previously been available.
With real-time traffic information for four million miles (6.4 million kilometers) of road in 37 countries, INRIX XD Traffic goes beyond the limits of today's technologies offering a service vital to improving mobility for the world's one billion drivers.
"Future mobility depends on all drivers, transportation agencies, and news organizations having access to detailed, up to the minute insight into what's happening on every road, everywhere," said Bryan Mistele, INRIX president and CEO. "Just as INRIX revolutionized mapping and navigation with crowd-sourced traffic information and traffic influenced routing, we're doing it again with INRIX XD Traffic."
Similar to industry breakthroughs like 3D and street view mapping, INRIX XD Traffic delivers unparalleled insight into what's happening on the road independent of the country or map provider. Key features include:
"INRIX XD Traffic is a true breakthrough and dramatically different from what's been available," said Roger Lanctot, Associate Director, Global Automotive Practice, Strategy Analytics. "Traffic is the single most important telematics application and INRIX XD Traffic is the first service with the potential to help the industry deliver on the promise of real-time navigation. Without reliable and accurate traffic data, it is impossible to determine the best routes, accurate arrival times, or even vehicle range based on fuel resources."
