ATX Teams With Peugeot to Offer Speedcam alert

Recommended Posts

Telematics solution provider ATX Group announced today the launch of a Web-based service in France and the United Kingdom offering Peugeot drivers the capability to receive audio and visual in-vehicle alerts about the location of safety cameras monitoring vehicle speeds.

The new, pay-per-use service, promoted as WIP Info Radars in France and Peugeot Connect Downloads in the U.K., is offered through a Web portal developed and hosted by ATX, enabling Peugeot drivers in France and the U.K. to continually download updates on safety monitoring camera sites (18,000 today) throughout 14 countries in Europe (France, U.K., Italy, Spain, Andorra, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, Poland, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Czech Republic and Slovenia) to a USB flash drive or memory card that can then be plugged into the automobile's navigation system. Drivers who purchase the information (€4.99 per download) would then receive alerts through their in-vehicle display screen when approaching an area where a safety camera is located.

"Enabling the connection with Web-based applications to get information to the vehicle will become one of the primary characteristics of connected vehicle services," said Arnaud de Meulemeester, managing director of ATX in Europe.

That idea should be a great one.

But in many countries we have non-payment databases of speedcams...

Anyway, the connection between web services and drivers could give new ways of safety in the road.

Let's see how it works in peugeot...
