GEWI releases TIC application for Apple iPad

GEWI has released the Traffic Information Center (TIC) Smart Client application for Apple’s iPad device, which allows users to quickly enter, view and share traffic and travel events. Designed for both commercial and government organizations, the app uses the iPad’s built-in GPS location feature to precisely locate a traffic and travel event on a road network. Users then specify the event and optionally add a photo from the device’s camera. The mobile app version is based on the popular TIC Smart Client for Windows used by traffic information operators on desktop computers worldwide. The German company’s TIC systems are used throughout the traffic information industry globally, with the resulting data used in many top-brand navigation devices.

Data from the iPad app’s users can be shared and delivered to traffic information service operators, who then monitor, check, enhance and correct the information before releasing it. TIC easily connects to third-party systems so the same information can be distributed to different devices, to reach many people, such as emergency responders and the general public. Simple and familiar iPad multi-touch hand gestures are used to create, view, update, sort and filter traffic and travel event information. To use the TIC Smart Client for iPad, the application uses the device’s internet connection to access GEWI’s TIC server, which is provided as a free demonstration service. When starting the app, users are invited to apply for an account and if accepted, they can use the app with the demonstration service for a limited period of time.
