INRIX, Inc., a global leader of connected car services and mobility analytics, announced the extension of its collaboration with BMW Group to connect North American vehicles with INRIX driving services for real-time traffic, travel alerts and online routing.
Powered by the INRIX network of more than 300 million connected vehicles and devices, BMW ConnectedDrive with Real-Time Traffic Information provides drivers with real-time and predictive traffic for routes, travel times, and accident and incident alerts. During a navigation session, INRIX also provides traffic-influenced rerouting for the most up-to-date travel information.
INRIX Intermodal Navigation and EV Range Spider services for BMW’s electric vehicles are also included in the extension. Intermodal Navigation integrates local public transportation schedules into the route planning and monitors real-time traffic conditions, alerting drivers to faster alternative modes of transportation when major delays occur along their routes.
EV Range Spider gives drivers an accurate estimation of how far they can travel, taking into account local traffic conditions, route topography and current battery charge.
“The journey from A to B is no longer determined only at the start of a trip – today’s drivers expect real-time information throughout their trip about the fastest and safest way to go,” said Joe Berry, Executive Vice President and General Manager – automotive at INRIX. “Our partnership with BMW is reflective of our continued efforts to provide industry-leading technology that enhances the driving experience.”
