Inrix will provide the states with real-time and historical traffic information as well as incident information for more than 40,000 mi. of roads, ramps and interchanges. This work continues the collaboration Inrix started with the Coalition nearly seven years ago to explore how location, heading and speed data from vehicles and mobile devices could provide a more cost-effective and comprehensive approach to understanding traffic conditions along the I-95 Corridor, the Coalition explained.
“Since the Coalition's inception, we've successfully demonstrated time and again how technology can help transportation agencies do more with less,” said George Schoener, executive director of the I-95 Corridor Coalition. “We appreciate Inrix’s efforts, commitment and continued contributions to our success.”
Expanded Inrix services include:
- Ability to cover more roads with greater precision. The company is making available its state-of-the art Inrix XD Traffic services that expands real-time coverage by more than 40% compared to TMC-based services providing detailed traffic speeds every 800 ft.
- Arterial quality. Extending data quality commitments beyond freeways to major arterials delivering real-time traffic speeds accurate within 10 mph.
- Actionable Incident Insight. Inrix XD Incidents correlates flow data with incident information to deliver better insight that includes queue length and location, traffic speed and overall delay time through the impacted area.
- Better pricing. Significantly improved pricing, making the cost-benefit of Inrix supplied services even more compelling.
“We have been working with the Coalition for many years, allowing us to demonstrate the quality and reliability of our data and its ability to enable a wide array of mission critical uses by state DOTs, metropolitan planning organizations and their partner agencies,” said Rick Schuman, Inrix’s vice president and general manager of public sector. “We look forward to continuing our successful relationship with the Coalition, the University and our many agency customers and encourage other agencies within and outside the Coalition to take a fresh look at the vehicle probe project and join this successful partnership.”
