RACC's Infotransit smartphone app wins two awards

Spain’s leading motoring organization, the RACC (Reial Automobile Club de Catalunya), has won two awards for its free iPhone and Android compatible application for traffic information: ‘RACC Infotransit’. The app has won the ‘Best ITS Project for Interurban Traffic Award’ presented by the Spanish ITS Congress’ and the ‘FIA Region I Innovation Council Award 2011’. Launched in November 2011, Infotransit is a completely free traffic and travel information service, which provides real-time and predictive traffic flow information in Spain and 17 other European countries. It has already achieved more than 130,000 downloads.

In Spain, the smartphone app also includes other features, such as: broadcast and media data, including congestion alerts, weather events and roadworks; around 1,100 traffic cameras and all static speed cameras at interurban and local level; and more than 8 000 petrol stations, with daily updated fuel prices. The RACC hopes that Infotransit will contribute to road safety, by providing accurate information on traffic incidents, such as accidents, road closures and hazardous weather conditions on the user’s route. The app encourages user participation, in order to continually improve its service by alerting other users to inaccurate information and to increase the information provided, by allowing users to report traffic incidents as they spot them on the road. The app also has social networking features to help to spread the information through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other regional services.
