CHICAGO – NAVTEQ, a global provider of digital maps for vehicle navigation and location-based solutions, has made available its NAVTEQ Traffic Patterns, a database of typical traffic speeds on over 170,000 miles of primary and secondary roads across major U.S. cities, including interconnecting highways. This new product delivers speeds for primary and secondary roads (function classes one through three) in major cities across the United States. Historical observations from GPS probe data are aggregated, verified, and then matched to TMC (Traffic Message Channel) codes on the NAVTEQ map. According to the company, NAVTEQ Traffic Patterns will enable more accurate route planning, improve trip time estimates based on likely traffic conditions, and provide an enhanced routing experience.
