INRIX has announced its plan to work with SharedStreets to make it easier for the private sector to work with cities around the world to improve urban mobility.
SharedStreets is a non-profit digital commons for the street. It’s a data standard and a platform that serves as a launching pad for public-private collaboration, and a clearinghouse for data exchange.
Currently, street-level data standards used by private companies and public agencies are incompatible. In addition, driving restriction are communicated with terrestrial signage and lane-striping and are frequently absent from or incorrect on digital maps.
As part of the partnership, INRIX will align the data validated and managed by cities and road authorities using the INRIX AV Road Rules platform with the Shared Streets format to realize the goal of making that information open and interoperable.
INRIX provides the foundation for cities and road authorities to communicate with operators for safe and effective deployment of HAVs on public roads. INRIX AV Road Rules is a platform that enables cities and road authorities to assign, validate and manage traffic rules and restrictions to support the safe and effective operation of autonomous vehicles on public roads. The platform also leverages information from HAVs to report infrastructure improvement needs, making the roads safer for all users.
By leveraging SharedStreets, INRIX will be able to ensure the data cities and road authorities validate and manage with AV Road Rules can be used across multiple providers and applications.
