TomTom Traffic provides accurate information about traffic jams and trustworthy ETAs, helping drivers make better decisions that save time, reduce stress and make the roads a safer place.
The number of vehicles on the road network is increasing, congestion is building and travel times are lengthening. Drivers are faced with congestion more frequently, and users of mapping and navigation applications are seeking ways to save time getting to their destinations.
TomTom Traffic is the most accurate, real-time traffic information system available today. It gives drivers highly accurate information for better route calculation (including continuous rerouting) and ETA.
At the same time, it minimizes OEM system requirements in terms of bandwidth consumption, processing power and memory. We collect over 5 billion traffic measurements a day using the OpenLR™ technology – TomTom’s dynamic location referencing.
To achieve the unrivalled quality and road coverage of TomTom Traffic, we use a range of sources in our fusion engine to generate real-time traffic information. The precise mix of sources varies by geographic market.
Our fusion engine intelligently combines the data from all available sources every minute into a database with both traffic flow and incident data for the entire road network.
TomTom Traffic will send updates to the navigation system every two minutes and will adjust the ETA or propose an alternative route according to real-time traffic conditions. The Route Bar, developed by our UX experts, displays traffic alerts including Jam Ahead Warnings that highlight the precise location of a traffic jam and provide an early-warning alert allowing drivers to safely reduce their speed.
TomTom Traffic is a global solution. Our service is currently available in 54 countries in Europe, the Americas, Africa and Asia, including a recent expansion to Argentina and Colombia. We are committed to expanding to more countries across all continents.
TomTom Traffic warns drivers about upcoming slow moving traffic due to heavy rain or snow. TomTom recognizes bad weather can affect traffic flow and cause delays, even though at a certain moment in time the delays might not be considered severe enough to be classed as a jam due to heavy traffic.
