TrafficTalk is a traffic information service which enables drivers using mobile phones to come together in an audio conference environment, where they can safely share details about traffic conditions and help each other avoid or escape back-ups. Commuters connect to localized “communities”, each covering different parts of a metro area. Group conversations are focused on particular roadways, allowing people to get the details they need to make informed decisions. As a voice-based service, TrafficTalk allows eyes to remain on the road and hands on the wheel. With greater safety and more robust traffic details, TrafficTalk’s information-sharing approach is raising the bar on what drivers can expect from a traffic information service.
