Pharos Science & Applications Inc., a leading provider of portable GPS navigation and location-based services, today announced the company has become an Elite BREW Developer, highlighting Pharos' work in creating the innovative Smart Traffic™ service now available for BREW-enabled handsets. The Smart Traffic service was recently named as a finalist for Best Productivity/M-Commerce application in the BREW 2004 Developer Awards being held at the BREW 2004 Developer’s Conference in San Diego, June 7-9.
Aggregating up-to-the-minute highway monitoring data from various State Transportation Departments and other Pharos partners, Smart Traffic gives consumers real-time traffic-flow information in both color-coded graphics and text for ease of use. Smart Traffic takes advantage of the wireless data capability of the BREW solution to deliver traffic incident and speed information directly to the user. Travelers equipped with BREW-enabled phones can receive Smart Traffic updates on demand, allowing them to see what traffic is like ahead, find out how fast traffic is moving and where lanes are blocked, and how to route around congested areas before they get stuck.
