Tele Atlas announces new Speed Profiles product

Tele Atlas Speed Profiles provide highly accurate speed data to allow end users of consumer, enterprise and business fleet navigation systems to find the most optimal route to their destination and more accurately estimate their travel time.

With the release of Speed Profiles, Tele Atlas is the only global digital map provider to enable route calculations based on comprehensive historical travel time and measured speed information. Traditional systems available today use standardised estimates to calculate routes, ignoring hurdles such as traffic lights, school hours and rotaries that can severely impact travel times.

Tele Atlas Speed Profiles marks a breakthrough in accuracy, with data derived from almost half a trillion speed measurements shared by consumers over the past two and a half years in 26 countries.

To ensure a high level of accuracy, the 33.5 million km of both directions of roads available in Tele Atlas Speed Profiles have been driven and measured on average more than 2,000 times at different times and during different days of the week, which enables Tele Atlas Speed Profiles to calculate routes according to actual average speeds for every five minutes of the day on any day of the week for frequently travelled roads.

Tele Atlas Speed Profiles is available in 24 European countries, the US and Canada. The product can be used as a backup to real-time traffic flow information or as a standalone, add-on to a navigation application.
