Add to this the ability to incorporate the highest quality real-time and predictive traffic data from Inrix, and broadcasters have the ultimate tool for producing clear, accurate, informative, up-to-the-minute maps to illustrate their traffic broadcasts.
Inrix currently provides real-time traffic incident information for 138 metropolitan markets and real-time traffic speed and dynamic predictive information for more than 20 metropolitan markets. Compared to current solutions that rely solely on flow data from often unreliable traffic sensors, Inrix aggregates data from a variety of sources including existing speed and incident data, historical data, weather conditions and forecasts, school calendars, major events, construction, holidays and other local variables unique to each market using sophisticated Bayesian Analysis to calculate current and future traffic conditions with a high degree of accuracy.
Halid Hatic, President of Sales for Curious Software, says: "We are delighted to be working with Inrix, and believe that the combination of our Traffic Producer with Inrix's traffic data will give all of our customers a unique and ground-breaking opportunity to enhance their traffic broadcasts."
"Our real-time and predictive traffic services analyze information from hundreds of public and private sources, providing commuters with traffic reports they can depend on," said Kush Parikh, Vice President, Business Development for Inrix. "Our approach also provides Curious Software broadcast customers with the unique ability to provide highly accurate 1-day, 3-day and 5-day traffic forecasts that help consumers better plan their daily commutes."
