TomTom has launched TomTom Audio Traffic which enables personalized and relevant traffic reports delivered over voice to drivers in a non-intrusive way. Audio Traffic is available as an Application Programming Interface (API) for developers.
Although personalized` traffic information is one of the most requested features by daily commuters driving known routes, they don’t necessarily want to use turn-by-turn navigation which typically includes traffic information about the route ahead.
TomTom Audio Traffic solves this problem by delivering an accurate traffic news bulletin that is relevant to the specific route that is being driven. And because it’s delivered via voice, drivers can keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road, helping with safer driving.
TomTom Audio Traffic, which was developed with provider of smart multimedia applications, Duel, is based on TomTom Live Traffic. Using the API, developers can easily integrate it into popular applications including music streaming services, internet radio, voice assistants and more.
TomTom’s (TOM2) On-Street Parking service has also announced that it has expanded availability to 100 cities in Europe, marking a major milestone for the offering. The service provides drivers with the probability of finding a parking space on the street, as well as the average search-time.
On-Street Parking complements the existing Off-Street Parking (parking garage and lot) information service. It’s offered to OEM and Enterprise customers, as well as via an Application Programming Interface (API) on the TomTom Developer Portal.
