traffic for treo™ smartphones


In 2006, SpeedInfo completed deployment of a network of sensors to provide coverage for the gaps in traditional public traffic data and expand coverage to hundreds of miles which previously had no speed measurement devices. After completion, the San Francisco Bay Area road system has been acknowledged as the area with the highest quality speed and flow information in the nation.

Working with our Traffic aggregation partner, metrocommute – SpeedInfo provides accurate-to-the-minute real time traffic flow data for the San Francisco Bay Area to power the traffic service option for the Palm Treo line of phones. Operating on both the Palm OS and Windows versions, metrocommute has incorporated the ability to provide dynamic updates to flow conditions, powering drivers or operators with the information necessary to fully understand the effects of traffic speed on travel times and route selection. While the Traffic service for Treo phones is offered for several cities, currently only roads in the SFO Bay area have the type and quality of coverage from SpeedInfo technology to insure confidence in the displayed data.

With SpeedInfo and metrocommute, knowing the flow of traffic means arriving on time for meetings, the airport and that special dinner. There has never been any traffic data like it. See what a difference directly measured, really, real-time traffic flow data can make in your hectic life.

speedinfo in the spotlight
 
   
    “We've been working with SpeedInfo for a little over a year and have been very pleased with them all-around. We went to SpeedInfo, because their competitor in the Bay area, Traffic.com was wholly unreliable (in all aspect of their business). They have very good data quality.

We calibrate and validate their data occasionally by drive testing. But more importantly, we have a large number of daily commuters who use our product in the SF Bay area (where we get SpeedInfo data) who are constantly providing feedback (via 800 phone number). The feedback from users is that the data quality of the Caltrans loops is poor (a well known fact from our LA users), and the SpeedInfo data is great. The user doesn't know the difference between the data sources when using our product, but rather they report problems in areas, we check the areas and determine the cause of the problem - SpeedInfo is never the cause of misinformation.

SpeedInfo’s help and responsiveness in answering any questions has been top notch. As compared to any other data sources (DOT or private), we found that they used a well thought out and sensible XML format that makes the whole data integration process extremely easy (as compared to about 25 other sources we have worked with). We rarely see SpeedInfo device malfunctions and when we're aware of problems we do notify them, and they are always aware of a problem in advance of our comments and have a truck ready to roll to fix it.

Honestly, having worked with 25 data sources in this industry, we rate SpeedInfo in terms of data quality, customer support, responsiveness, ability to hold to a plan, etc - an A+. I'd say the second best data provider (government or private) is B-. They are head and shoulders above the rest.”
