New Dangerous Slowdowns service uses real-time data from vehicles to warn drivers of sudden stops ahead
Connected car services and transportation analytics firm INRIX has announced the global availability of INRIX Safety Alerts. The new product suite provides real-time insight on roadways to inform drivers and make roadways safer.
The Safety Alerts product suite – made up of INRIX Dangerous Slowdowns, INRIX Incidents and INRIX Road Weather – 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 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.
