Sygic Intros Platform For Next-Gen Traffic Management Apps

Navigation service provider Sygic on Monday announced its latest offering in the form of the Smart Mobility Platform, a solution meant to enable the next generation of traffic management apps. The new technology has been announced by Sygic Smart City Solution Architect Radim Cmar at Vienna, Austria-based Transport Research Arena running from today through Thursday, with the Slovakian company describing it as its answer to the issue of urban traffic congestion that's still worsening on a global level every year, according to a number of recent surveys, including TomTom's 2017 Traffic Index published in late February.

Sygic claims that its Smart Mobility Platform allows city administrations to monitor commuting patterns in their jurisdictions and optimize their operations in a more effective manner with such data in mind, in addition to delivering a solution that enables more streamlined traffic management app development across the board. The framework can be leveraged for creating all kinds of mobility apps catering to commuters with the goal of directing users to the least populated routes to their destinations, consequently combating urban traffic congestion. The newly announced technology allows for real-time traffic level predictions and is also able to utilize them in the context of more complex applications such as city-wide mobility forecasts meant to help authorities make the best of their infrastructure so as to avoid congestion whenever possible.

The scope of commuter data collected by the platform can hence benefit a wide variety of urban planning encompassing transit routers, infrastructure buildouts, traffic signaling, and general traffic improvements, according to the company. The newly launched solution is powered by Microsoft's Azure platform and will be made available to city administrations in the coming weeks. Sygic has been rather busy in recent months, having partnered with everyone from Chinese tech giant Huawei to global automaker Ford on its mission to become the world's leading provider of app navigation services.
