Traffic data analytics company Inrix has landed a contract to help monitor traffic and congestion in real time across the Greater Paris metropolitan area.

The deal, with the Ile-de-France Road Directorate (DiRIF), whose area of responsibility takes in 12 million people and 2,000km of road, was announced at the ITS World Congress in Bordeaux. Inrix will partner with PTV Group, using the company’s PTV Optima analytics platform, to monitor traffic flow and gridlock across the strategic road network.

PTV will process data from INRIX’s crowdsourced network of connected vehicles and devices. Using this GPS-based system, DiRIF will be able to identify congestion hot spots and provide drivers with accurate, real-time data about travel times.

“We are seeing a trend of European transport authorities embracing floating car data as a viable solution to better understanding and actively addressing urban mobility problems across cities and regions,” says Scott Sedlik, General Manager, EMEA at Inrix. “Real-time information and data analytics offer transport authorities unparalleled insight into what is happening on the road at any given time.”
