INRIX to deliver historical traffic speeds for Europe
Seattle-based traffic provider INRIX is announcing today the availability of its historical traffic speed database for Europe. Designed for use in routing and travel time applications, encompasses accurate speed information for over 420,000 kilometers across roadway networks in Germany, France, the U.K., Netherlands, Belgium, and Luxemburg.

“Expanded coverage for additional countries and roads across Western Europe will be available soon”, added INRIX.

“The scale of our crowd-sourced network of speed data from GPS-enabled commercial and consumer vehicles and devices, as well as our partnerships across Europe, is driving the availability of new INRIX traffic services such as our historical traffic speeds product,” said Hans-Hendrik Puvogel, general manager of INRIX Europe.

Other providers of historical traffic patterns across Europe include NAVTEQ and Tele Atlas. So far NAVTEQ offers only United Kingdom (120,000 km) and Germany (200,000 km) in 15 minutes increments for each day of the week. In comparison Tele Atlas – thanks to the data crowd-sourced via TomTom customers - covers over 15 million km in Europe.
