INRIX to provide real time traffic flow data for nearly 250 centerline miles in the US
INRIX(R), the leading provider of traffic flow information in the country, and Short Elliott Hendrickson Inc. (SEH(R)), a Midwest-based professional consulting services firm, today announced the system acceptance by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) for INRIX to provide real time traffic flow data for nearly 250 centerline miles of US 41, I-43, and WIS 172.

INRIX is providing three different types of traffic flow data for these key roadways between Milwaukee and Green Bay: traffic speeds by road segment; over 30 key route travel times; and congestion alerts that can be easily integrated into WisDOT's future 511 service.

Wisconsin DOT is now integrating INRIX data into its Traffic Management software and intends to demonstrate its expanded coverage for those that tour the new Statewide Traffic Operations Center (TOC) during the American Association of Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Annual Meeting beginning on September 27, 2007 in Milwaukee.

Until now, these routes lacked traditional road sensors. With the INRIX Smart Dust Network, traffic information is now available by leveraging data from more than 250 public and private sources, including the world's largest network of GPS-enabled probe vehicles, and other data sources. INRIX's unique Traffic Fusion Engine uses advanced, proprietary statistical analysis to aggregate, blend and enhance traffic-related information, ensuring highly accurate road speeds and the broadest market and road coverage available. For the first time, commuters in Wisconsin will have access to INRIX real time traffic information that, in addition to WisDOT
resources, is available on over 75 models of portable and automotive navigation devices, mobile phones and smartphones.
