SUNA Gets Upgrade

  • Extra 2,000km of roads monitored
  • Improved accuracy claimed
  • Includes GPS trackers on probe vehicles

Australian motorists using the SUNA real-time traffic service will begin receiving more detailed road condition updates later this month following an upgrade to the service.

Intelematics Australia announced today that it would increase the amount of traffic flow data collected by the traffic service to deliver greater reliability, improved accuracy and expanded coverage.

Coined SUNA 3, the service will analyse more than three hundred million instantaneous speed measurements each month, triple that of the previous iteration of the service. The service will now combine a range of traffic data which includes GPS trackers on probe vehicles, traffic light data, traffic camera data and analysis of historical traffic information.

Adam Game, Chief Executive Officer, Intelematics Australia, said SUNA 3 will go live in the coming weeks in the lead up to the Christmas period and will be available to existing SUNA customers at no additional cost.

Approximately 5,500 km of arterial road will benefit from access to multiple data sources, while approximately 2,000km of non-signalised city roads previously not monitored for congestion will now be monitored using probe vehicle data.

SUNA is currently available in Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth.
