Volvo Cars has selected INRIX, Inc. for the car maker’s first live traffic service. INRIX will provide Volvo drivers with rich, real-time and predictive traffic flow information for routes, travel times, and alerts to accidents and incidents. The technology will be integrated globally first into the Volvo Cluster 90 vehicles equipped with Sensus Connect.
INRIX offers accurate real-time and predictive traffic information for every major road type including highways, arterials, city streets and other secondary roads. INRIX combines traffic information from its crowd-sourced network of connected vehicles and insight from thousands of public and private sources to provide Volvo Cars with a real-time traffic service that covers more than five million miles in 42 countries.
Volvo Sensus Connect is an on-board infotainment and navigation solution that allows drivers to find and pay for parking, discover new places, stream their favorite music and more. INRIX real-time traffic will be available in November 2015 in the new Volvo XC90, and then in all other future Volvo models.
