The Addinsight smartphone app provides direction and location specific information to motorists via spoken alerts through their car stereo. This keeps the driver focused on the road ahead, not the screen of their phone.
Incident delay and route travel time messages automatically update as network conditions change. Custom messages can also be defined to provide any type of information, such as detour details, to navigate around an incident. Filtering through irrelevant traffic reports on the radio will become a thing of the past.
There’s nothing to configure and no need to input destination details. The app will run in the background and deliver alerts if you are travelling in the relevant direction.
They want to know if an incident will impact their journey, and how to avoid it where possible.
Before leaving home, users can quickly check for issues in the app’s map view. Problem areas are highlighted, so you can decide the best route before leaving.
The Addinsight system detects an incident, and automatically begins broadcasting at locations approaching the incident. Traffic management centre operators are alerted of the congestion, and able to identify if a crash or significant incident has occurred, allowing them to update the system with additional information.
TMC operators can then focus their attention on managing the incident, while Addinsight regularly updates the broadcast delays as conditions change.
