Drivewyze announced it partnered with the Georgia Department of Transportation to provide real-time traffic alerts from Inrix through Drivewyze’s smart roadways service.
The Georgia alerts, available at no cost to commercial truck drivers, cover more than 500 miles of roadways, including along interstates 75, 95 and 16, according to Drivewyze. Real-time congestion and incident data is provided by Inrix, which uses advanced algorithms to analyze millions of anonymous connected vehicles traveling more than a billion miles daily in the U.S.
Fully automated messages such as “Sudden Slowdown Ahead” and “Congestion Ahead” are displayed 2 to 3 miles before the slowdown begins on in-cab equipment like electronic logging devices that are always on and have the Drivewyze platform installed.
