Trafficmaster launches digital traffic in the UK

Traffic information is collated from Trafficmaster's nationwide traffic monitoring network, which covers 95% of the UK's motorways and trunk roads.

With the launch of Trafficmaster's Digital Traffic Broadcast service, DAB-compliant navigation systems will have access to better quality and more reliable traffic flow information, including emergency incidents and road works. This will allow drivers to receive enhanced routing instructions and more accurate delay times.

The new digital service supports the full TPEG standard developed by the Traveller Information Services Association (TISA). It is commercially available to UK automotive manufacturers and PND providers.

Trafficmaster's Digital Traffic Broadcast is also supported by the Digital Radio Development Bureau (DRDB), a trade body that has been set up to encourage digital radio's wide accessibility and swift adoption in the UK.
