Navigation Technologies and Mobility Technologies join forces for trial Of North American traffic data solution

Navigation Technologies, a provider of digital maps for vehicle navigation, Internet/wireless, government and business solutions, and Mobility Technologies, a provider of real-time traffic and transportation information and services, are collaborating on a four-city trial of Navigation Technologies’ real-time traffic data solution for North America. The trial is currently underway in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Detroit. Navigation Technologies has developed a traffic data solution designed to aggregate the data of multiple leading traffic data providers, like Mobility Technologies, to provide the highest quality real-time traffic information. The solution allows the information to be packaged for delivery to vehicles and wireless handheld devices to help drivers in North America make smart routing decisions. The solution is uniquely designed to provide detailed traffic information aggregated specifically for navigation applications. It can receive multiple sources and types of information from incident (accidents, stalled vehicles, etc.) and flow (speed and movement of traffic) to weather and events. The information is merged with NAVTECH map data through a data integration process for delivery to an in-vehicle navigation system, PDA or mobile phone through a wireless signal. Navigation Technologies first demonstrated a North American traffic data solution in October 2002 at the 9th World Congress on Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), the global conference and exhibition on transportation technology.
