Mercedes-Benz launches in-car traffic cameras from Vizzion/INRIX
Mercedes-Benz has launched a traffic camera feature within their mbrace2 “Mercedes-Benz Apps” package, powered by Vizzion and INRIX. This marks the first time that traffic cameras have entered the market directly integrated by an auto OEM. Mercedes customers will save time with the live traffic snapshots that provide visual verification of traffic flow, incidents, and weather-related road conditions across the United States.
Vizzion and INRIX provide mbrace2 customers with access to over 20,000 traffic cameras across North America, capitalizing on the broadest traffic camera coverage on the market. Cameras can be displayed near the driver’s location, along a specified route, or near a destination. A 3-month trial of the service is available for both new and pre-owned 2013 Mercedes vehicles.
