The significance of traffic information gains importance in different areas. Whereas in the past solely the best connection between two locations had to be identified, today up-to-date traffic information should also contribute to find time optimized connections which can be changed at any time.
To perform an assessment of the traffic information it is essential to know the “Ground Truth”, meaning the current status information at the respective road segment.
NavCert offers providers and buyers of traffic information an independent and neutral analysis. In this context the area-related availability (coverage of road category), the accuracy (length of traffic jams and travel speed) as well as the timeliness will be measured.
Additionally NavCert also offers to analyse the process of data collection, processing and distribution and audits the respective quality management system.
