Introducing the SKODA AUTO Traffication Infotainment App with traffic warning alerts across the board
Following on from the infotainment apps for weather and news as well as the new Calendar App and Marketplace App, ŠKODA is now introducing its Traffication Infotainment App. After installation via the Shop, the new application runs in the background but immediately shows an alert on the central infotainment display when the driver could encounter a traffic hazard on an upcoming stretch of road. Such a warning can prevent drivers from inadvertently entering a motorway slip road against the direction of traffic, thus becoming wrong-way drivers. The cars in question must likewise be running the Traffication Infotainment App. In the future, these warnings will be sent from all new ŠKODA cars fitted with systems based on the third-generation Modular Infotainment Matrix.
One of the key features of the Traffication Infotainment App is a warning issued when a driver tries to enter a motorway slip road against the direction of traffic. Bosch’s cloud-based wrong-way driver warning system has been available as a smartphone app since 2018 and is now offered by 25 app partners in Europe.
