Navigation Technologies, aprovider of digital maps for vehicle navigation, Internet/wireless, governmentand business solutions, and Iteris, Inc., a provider of real-timetraffic information, are collaborating on a four-city trial of NavigationTechnologies' real-time traffic data solution for North America. The trial iscurrently underway in Chicago, Los Angeles, New York and Detroit. Navigation Technologies says it has developed a traffic data solution designed toaggregate the data of multiple traffic data providers, like Iteris, toprovide the real-time traffic information. The solution allowsthe information to be packaged for delivery to vehicles and wireless handhelddevices to help drivers in North America make smart routing decisions. Thesolution is uniquely designed to provide detailed traffic informationaggregated specifically for navigation applications. It can receive multiplesources and types of information from incident (accidents, stalled vehicles,etc.) and flow (speed and movement of traffic) to weather and events. Theinformation is merged with NAVTECH(R) map data through a data integrationprocess for delivery to an in-vehicle navigation system, PDA or mobile phonethrough a wireless signal. Navigation Technologies says its traffic data solution employs an inclusive,flexible architecture that is scalable to multiple data providers and markets. Iteris' traffic incident and flow data are key enablers of NavigationTechnologies' four-city traffic trial. Iteris develops products and servicesto address the safety, security, and management of roadways, facilities, andnetworks. Iteris is a provider of real-time traffic information thatincludes current traffic speeds, traffic accidents, roadway construction,travel times, and streaming video traffic cameras. Navigation Technologies first demonstrated a North American traffic datasolution in October 2002 at the 9th World Congress on IntelligentTransportation Systems (ITS), the global conference and exhibition ontransportation technology.
