Smart Device Services

How it Works: Smart devices such as telematics platforms, smart phones, advanced infotainment units, and eventually Connected Vehicle On Board Units, contain GPS capability, motion sensors, cellular data connectivity and in some cases access to data from the vehicle diagnostics bus. The data collected from these sensors can be processed locally in concert with operational data such as traffic or road conditions from other parties to provide real time advice to drivers. Raw data from the sensors or information derived from the data may be sent to other parties as part of supplying services. The device owner (individual, corporation or agency) must load the software into the device and agree to and manage the distribution of data selectively to interested parties. This approach provides two way communications with vehicles, drivers or travelers and delivers timely, more detailed information to the service for processing along with additional functionality for drivers, fleet managers and terminal operators. Traffic monitoring and delay time applications typically require that 3% to 5% of vehicles participate.


  • Real time traffic monitoring across broad road networks
  • Dynamic route guidance to specific vehicles
  • Immediate detection and location of congestion
  • Delay time measurement before, during and after construction
  • Border, bridge, tunnel wait time measurements and prediction by vehicle/driver type
  • Driver advisory to reduce energy/fuel use
  • Vehicle and fleet level reporting of fuel, emissions reductions for sustainability programs
  • Driver road conditions and safety warnings
