Drivewyze has expanded its Smart Roadways service through a new partnership with the Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT).
This service gives drivers access to real-time heavy congestion and slowdown traffic alerts, such as where drastic speed changes or heavier than normal congestion is detected. The messages are delivered using visual messages such as “sudden slowdown ahead” along with an audible chime. The alerts are configured to allow ample time for trucks to slow down or stop. The congestion and sudden slowdown alerts were developed through a partnership between Drivewyze and Inrix.
The alerts are also available in six other states: North Carolina, Georgia, Ohio, Virginia, New Jersey and the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Drivewyze expects to add more states in the near future.
This application is embedded in most Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs), as well as on mounted mobile devices. Alerts are also available for free on any Android smartphone with the Drivewyze app.
