TomTom (TOM2), a global company that manufactures navigation and mapping products, has revealed that its live traffic data system has been selected by Frankfurt and Düsseldorf traffic management centres in Germany.

Frankfurt and Düsseldorf have already implemented an intelligent traffic control system, developed by Gevas software, and TOM2’s live traffic data system would complement the existing road sensor information for an enhanced view of the cities’ traffic flows.

TomTom Licensing Business Unit managing director Anders Truelsen said: “TomTom is on a mission to reduce traffic congestion and transform mobility across the world.

“We provide our data and expertise to cities and traffic managers in innovative and easy-to-use ways, supporting them in making better decisions and developing smarter applications.”

The systems have been designed to optimise the efficiency of the road networks and address sources of traffic congestion, to provide smart cities with a wide range of benefits to their road users, as well as help them to reduce fuel consumption, and minimise travel times.

"The systems have been designed to optimise the efficiency of the road networks and address sources of traffic congestion."

Gevas software sales head Michael Neuner said: “We are pleased that the citizens of Frankfurt and Düsseldorf will now experience improved traffic conditions thanks to the addition of live traffic data from TomTom.

“Our expertise in delivering modern traffic management solutions and TomTom’s live traffic data will help to keep traffic flowing.”

TOM2 traffic data offers live and historic insights into traffic flows and trends, enabling authorities to manage and address traffic congestions proactively rather than only responding once a situation has been escalated.
