INRIX, the leading international specialist in analysing and predicting traffic flows, has announced a major extension in the number of roads it monitors in the US and Europe. It says it can now provide real-time information on six times as many roads as before.

The company says its flagship INRIX XD Monitoring system provides detailed traffic speeds every 250 metres across 1.8 million centreline miles of road in 33 countries.

Among advances, the company says it now monitors thousands of additional interchanges, hundreds of thousands of miles of secondary roads, and also new roads that don’t have TMC (Traffic Message Channel) coverage. This is the system that broadcasts traffic information over digital radio. The company claims that INRIX XD Segments and sub-segment viewing options provide better granularity for queue detection than TMC code coverage. 

It also says it provides better and more responsive incident detection and analysis, so that it work out the likely impact of accidents on traffic movement more quickly.

Users can also take advantage of an optional map view that highlights locations where traffic is much slower than expected for the current time/day, identifying trouble spots at a glance. 

INRIX information is delivered in various ways – through an in-car or smartphone navigation application, a local newscast or via its own INRIX Traffic app.

* INRIX has established a strategic partnership with PTV Group, the German-based specialist in routing and mapping, in which the companies will collaborate on smart city solutions that will use big data and demand-based modelling software to tackle urban mobility problems worldwide. Under the deal, PTV Group is integrating INRIX XD Traffic into PTV Optima, its own tool for traffic prediction.
