ITIS Mobile Traffic Client is a personal solution for increasing traffic jams that is compatible with most of the S60 3rd edition devices with the built in GPS such as Nokia N96, Nokia N95 and Nokia E66. In order to get it to work, you need you need to install client application and a "map-pack".
The client sends the ITIS traffic server its GPS coordinates, and in return the server sends back traffic information for the surrounding area. GPS Data is added to the existing fleet data of around 80'000 unique vehicles per day, which is then fused with journalistic data provided by the "trafficlink" arm of ITIS.
I’ve installed the application and the map pack and it works fine but unfortunately I can’t test it completely because service is initially UK exclusive. They are indeed planning to further expand its services and they are looking for testers in Milan and Munich over the next coming weeks.
So if you are interested to be part of the closed beta testing, you should contact them via the contact page on their website or through our forum section as well.
