TrafficLand will provide live video from its network of roadway traffic cameras to the Harman Aha Radio TrafficLand traveller information app at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018, in Las Vegas. The solution, according to its CEO Lawrence Nelson, can provide content to dramatically increase driver awareness about traffic and weather conditions on the roadway ahead as well as make all the difference when it comes to driver safety.
The new mobile application will be demonstrated on a 2018 Jeep Cherokee which will display live, updating roadway images along routes between the city and several popular area destinations, including the Hoover Dam and Red Rock Canyon.
Aha’s Radio mobile app is integrated into over 50 car models of 14 automakers including Acura, Chrysler, Ford, Honda, Mazda, Porsche, Scion, Subaru and Toyota.
Steve Surhigh, vice president and general manager of Cloud Services for Harman International, said: “Adding TrafficLand roadway video to our Aha Radio TrafficLand is one of the best vehicle to infrastructure demonstrations we have seen. Real-time, updating roadway video is very visual and easy to understand, which makes it very informative and useful for our end users.”
