INRIX Safety Alerts product suite to make connected vehicles and smart cities safer
INRIX, Inc. announced the immediate global availability of INRIX Safety Alerts, a new product suite designed to provide real-time insight on roadways, to inform drivers, and to make roadways safer.
"INRIX has long been focused on making driving not only more efficient, but also safer. INRIX Safety Alerts is an innovative next step to proactively use massive amounts of big data to make connected vehicles and smart cities safer for everyone," said Mark Daymond, Chief Technology Officer at INRIX. "Drivers, fleet operators, and city planners now have a real-time solution for visibility into ever-changing road conditions."
The Safety Alerts product suite is comprised of INRIX Dangerous Slowdowns, INRIX Incidents, and INRIX Road Weather. Safety Alerts collects real-time data from vehicles and a range of other sources to help drivers around the world avoid sudden stops, accidents, and hazardous road conditions, and it aids transportation agencies in managing their road networks better.
- INRIX Dangerous Slowdowns is a newly launched service in INRIX XD Traffic that helps prevent back-of-queue, rear-end collisions where rapidly forming congestion creates a situation that requires advanced driver awareness. Based on real-time data from vehicles on the road, the location-based notifications warn drivers and transportation agencies of sudden reductions in speed or stopped traffic on the roadway.
- INRIX Incidents keeps drivers and transportation planners informed about congestion, accidents and construction on the road. Using more than 400 data sources, Incidents provides a comprehensive and accurate global dataset of anomalous roadway conditions.
- INRIX Road Weather is, according to the company, the first service to use real-time and predictive atmospheric data to give drivers advance warning of dangerous weather-related road conditions tied to individual road segments. Road Weather provides drivers with critical information about the roads themselves, including the type of precipitation, surface condition (including hard-to-detect black ice), and visibility. The identification of hazardous road conditions can also be utilized by transportation officials for real-time management of road networks or advanced maintenance planning.
