America News:  Tele Atlas enriches digital map content with historical traffic speed info

Tele Atlas has announced the availability of Tele Atlas Historical Traffic Speeds to help provide accurate average speeds on individual road segments in the US.

Tele Atlas Historical Traffic Speeds uses real-time GPS probe data from commercial fleet, delivery and taxi vehicles across the continental US, combined with DOT sensors and highway toll tags to determine the average roadway speeds based on historical traffic information for the past two years.

Through Tele Atlas Historical Traffic Speeds, average speeds now are available on specific road segments for nearly 500,000 miles of roadway across the country for every hour of the day on each specific day of the week.

Tele Atlas Historical Traffic Speeds are available now for partner application developers and device manufacturers in a range of consumer and enterprise markets; additional roadway coverage will be available later this year.

The complete Tele Atlas/Traffic offering includes real-time incident, flow and predictive traffic data and historical traffic speed information.

Tele Atlas will demonstrate Tele Atlas/Traffic at Telematics Detroit 2007 on May 22-23.
