RAC Trafficmaster Telematics is a joint venture between Trafficmaster PLC and RAC.
The RDS TMC service offered by RTT is unique in that it utilises real-time traffic information gathered from Trafficmaster's established network of over 7,500 roadside nationwide sensors. This is then supplemented with incidental data from the RAC.
The data is transmitted through the RDS bandwidth of Trafficmaster's commercial radio partners - GCap Media Plc and Chrysalis Radio, who together ensure that motorists across mainland Great Britain can receive the RAC Trafficmaster service. Data is provided to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) or direct to automotive manufacturers.
Trafficmaster's traffic information is derived from its unique state-of-the-art network of nationwide static roadside sensors and transmitters that gather and distribute traffic data from over 8,000 miles of motorway and trunk routes. Traffic data is then delivered to the customer through a number of screen or speech-based receivers. These include a variety of in-car products and services that include Trafficmaster's own revolutionary navigation product - Smartnav, Trafficmaster Monitor, YQÂ², Oracle and Freeway units. Traffic information can also be obtained from your mobile phone by calling 1740. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
