Google Maps to use SUNA traffic service in Australia

Google selected Intelematics Australia to provide current traffic information from its SUNA Traffic Channel service to show congestion levels on Australia’s east coast roads on Google Maps, according to a report.

"We developed a traffic data feed for the Google Maps platform that enables us to report congestion levels in major regional centres. This means that in addition to covering Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Gold Coast, Google Maps can now incorporate information on congestion levels in Wollongong, the Central Coast, Geelong and the Sunshine Coast," said Adam Game, Chief Executive Officer, Intelematics Australia.

SUNA evaluates traffic information from a wide range of sources including in-road sensors and cameras located throughout covered cities. In particular, SUNA leverages real-time data extracted from the traffic light control infrastructure in each state.

In the navigation market Intelematics supplies RDS-TMC traffic data to ECLIPSE, Garmin, Mio, Navman, Navway, Pioneer, TomTom, Uniden, and Ford Motor Company.
