SmartRoute Systems has announced a multi-year cross-licensing agreement to integrate its traffic incident data into the Navteq Traffic software for some navigation enabled devices in North America. The agreement also enables SmartRoute to offer its customers traffic data and other information geocoded to Navteq maps.

The agreement will help bring real-time traffic information to a broad range of navigation-enabled devices including in-vehicle navigation systems. With real-time traffic information linked to accurate map data, navigation device users will be able to make informed routing and re-routing decisions.

SmartRoute’s national traffic database offers traffic and transportation information for over 100 US cities, using the largest private traffic-gathering infrastructure in the world. More than 1900 employees in 76 separate operational facilities report on accidents, breakdowns, construction and other events and their impact on traffic flow. Relationships with numerous departments of transportation provide access to speed and flow data where available, while 150 aircraft, hundreds of camera images and mobile units visually confirm all information before it is reported.

Navteq Traffic provides traffic flow rates, planned incident and unplanned incident data to enable personalized, real-time information to navigation systems. The firm quality checks and aggregates traffic data from multiple sources in a system that links up-to-the minute traffic information to map data and enables wireless transmission direct to location-enabled devices such as in-vehicle navigation systems and cellular phones.
