INRIX has announced that five new US state departments of transportation (DOTs) signed an agreement to use the company’s transportation system management, operations and performance measurement applications.

To date, 17 US state DOTs have subscribed to INRIX real-time traffic services, covering approximately 600,000 miles.

Tennessee DOT, Oregon DOT and Louisiana DOT subscribed for INRIX real-time traffic services across the state-wide road network.

Additionally, Texas DOT and Rhode Island DOT expanded to state-wide INRIX services.

Furthermore, INRIX and its partnership with the University of Maryland’s CATT Lab is providing real-time and historical roadway analytics tools to the states.

Tennessee DOT subscribed for INRIX Dangerous Slowdowns to focus on secondary crash reductions while Rhode Island DOT / DOA and Texas DOT will use INRIX Trip Analytics powered by CATT Lab, and Louisiana DOTD will integrate INRIX Corridor Travel Times.

INRIX US public sector Americas vice-president Rick Schuman said: “More than a decade ago, INRIX was the first company in the US to offer public agencies real-time speed, travel time and congestion data solely based on crowd-sourced data.

“State agencies increasingly understand the cost-effectiveness of using crowdsourced data to monitor and manage their vast road network to improve safety and increase network reliability.

“We’re excited to welcome our new state subscribers and are honoured they’re using INRIX data and tools to achieve their objectives in these challenging and cost-conscious times.”

INRIX used different contract procurement mechanisms wherein Texas DOT used its competitive Request for Offer process; Oregon DOT and Louisiana DOTD contracted with the University of Maryland with INRIX to support the CATT Lab.

Further, Tennessee and Rhode Island license INRIX services through the Eastern Transportation Coalition’s Vehicle Probe Project.

Last year, INRIX introduced an AI-powered traffic solution to provide specific and actionable road information to drivers.
