INRIX launches smart cities platform to exploit connected cars

Currently, two services are available on INRIX Insights: INRIX Insights Trips and INRIX Insights Volumes. According to the company, these products have the ability to provide government and its agencies with more scalable, cost-effective and immediate ways to predict, plan and prioritise investment in roads and transits across their entire transportation network infrastructure. It claims its services allow the government to rely on road-side counters and automated traffic records much less, as Insights Volume can understand traffic volumes by day of the week, time of day and by vehicle type.
