Mobility analytics and traffic information company INRIX is extending its collaboration with BMW Group in North America, supplying real-time traffic and travel alerts and online routing.
BMW’s ConnectedDrive service with Real-Time Traffic Information provides drivers with real-time and predictive traffic for routes, travel times, and accident and incident alerts. During a navigation session, INRIX also provides traffic-influenced rerouting.
The INRIX Intermodal Navigation and EV Range Spider services for BMW’s electric vehicles are also included in the extension.
Intermodal Navigation integrates local public transportation schedules into the route planning and monitors real-time traffic conditions which the company explains alerts drivers to faster alternative modes of transportation when major delays occur along their routes. EV Range Spider gives drivers an accurate estimation of how far they can travel, taking into account local traffic conditions, route topography and current battery charge.
