Travel Time : System for connected cars converts anonymous raw GSM signaling data into real-time actionable traffic data

TimeTomTom and Vodafone are developing technology to convert anonymous, raw GSM signaling data into accurate, real-time, information on the speed and direction of cars traveling throughout the road network. The technology provides accurate, fast, and detailed pictures of actual travel times. The total investments are a fraction of the current, road side equipment based solutions. The service will contain door-to-door travel time information rather than just the length of a traffic jam. It can accurately compare various alternatives for total travel time and can automatically calculate the best alternative.
