Melbourne, Australia: Intelematics, a leading provider of connected mobility services, announced a four year partnership with GEWI, a global supplier of traffic and travel information services. The deployment of GEWI’s TIC3 software will provide operators with greater visibility and control over traffic data. Subsequently, users will experience traffic updates with increased accuracy and timeliness.
SUNA is an advanced digital traffic service operating in Australia and New Zealand that provides a rich source of information on traffic congestion and incidents. Covering more than 17 million Australians, the traffic service broadcasts to all Australian capital cities and major regional cities, as well as New Zealand.
Intelematics utilises road sensors and connected vehicles to gather traffic flow data. This is supplemented with incident information sourced from road authorities, emergency services and tow truck dispatchers to provide a comprehensive traffic service.
By upgrading to the TIC3 system, SUNA operators can better manage the delivery of traffic notifications through a range of improved capabilities. New traffic visualisation maps will provide operators with better tools for greater analysis and insights. Broadcast history can also be stored for an extended period.
“This is an important upgrade for the future of SUNA,” Dan Kelly, Program Manager Data and Content, Intelematics said. “TIC3 enables us to have greater visibility on data and provides us with the tools to give customers accurate and timely information.”
“The TIC3 upgrade has already been deployed to all the regions where SUNA is available. The benefits and advantages to this upgrade have already become apparent.”
