INRIX Connected Driver Network is a driver network that includes 175 million vehicles, smartphones, cameras, incidents and other sensors with the ability to cover more than 4 million miles of road, ramps and interchanges in 40 countries.

Denmark has become the first country in the world to rely on GPS probe data to monitor traffic and congestion on a national scale. Using INRIX, a provider of transportation intelligence and connected-car services, to provide real-time traffic information throughout the country, the Danish Road Directorate will be able to more effectively monitor traffic flow and gridlock across its entire national road network.

The Danish Road Directorate, which has more than 10 years’ experience of using GPS data to monitor traffic, recognizes that gathering real-time information from private and commercial vehicles is the most effective way to gain a comprehensive picture of traffic and congestion across Denmark.

In addition to more traditional traffic monitoring methods, using real-time information from connected vehicles and devices is a cost-effective solution that will provide the Danish Road Directorate with an immediate view of what is happening throughout its entire national road network, improving traffic flow across more than 2,500 miles of road, according to INRIX. As a result, drivers will be provided with more accurate, real-time information about the most congested routes.

“By using INRIX’s expertise in real-time data and through deploying this technology across our entire road network, we will be able to detect extraordinary traffic queues quicker, issue earlier warnings of congestion and improve the way we manage road incidents to achieve a smoother flow of traffic across Denmark,” said Charlotte Vithen, director of traffic management at Danish Road Directorate.

Bryan Mistele, CEO of INRIX, added, “INRIX is excited by this partnership and committed to helping the Danish Road Directorate manage its national road network effectively, improve interurban mobility and provide high quality, timely information to individual travelers, cities and businesses across the country. We also see this as an opportunity to showcase best practices and how technology innovation can improve urban mobility in other countries and cities across Europe and the rest of the world.”
