INRIX to Power Traffic Apps for Samsung Devices Samsung Not in Mood for Waze



INRIX today announced a partnership with Samsung to enable real-time traffic and travel time insight apps.

Four apps have developed using INRIX services.

The first is "Car Mode,“ which allows consumers to set their device to automatically switch to a driver friendly user interface. Car mode provides real-time traffic maps showing the best routes, travel times and ETAs to home and work in traffic.

Continuously monitoring conditions on the driver's route throughout their journey, car mode also provides voice alerts about accidents and other incidents as well as access to real-time insight into the closest available off-street parking and least expensive place to refuel.

The second is a widget called "My Places" that provides Galaxy Note 4 and Note Edge users with 'glance and go' insight into the best route, travel time and ETA from their current location to home and to work.

Third, INRIX integrated its XD Traffic app with the Samsung Gear S Smartwatch. The app users now can receive departure alerts for saved places in the app that tells them the best time to leave and expected travel time in traffic to their destination. 
Lastly INRIX brought its data to "Morning!", a smart alarm clock app. the app gets you up and going with weather, traffic conditions to work, your appointments of the day, and unread emails. INRIX helps this app jump start commuters' day each morning with insight into recommended departure times and travel times in traffic to work and alerts to accidents and other incidents causing delays on their route.

This deal is obviously very interesting for INRIX both in terms of revenue but also in the number of probe data made available through those apps.

"We're not only making navigation easier for Samsung device owners but creating a network effect that makes our roads work smarter for all drivers,“ commented INRIX Vice President of marketing Jon Maron.
