Multi-channel and multi-purpose traffic information
Organisation: The Dutch Royal Touring Club ANWB
What do you do with NDW data? Why?
The ANWB has traditionally provided traffic information to its customers. ANWB provides traffic information both before and during the journey. Think of traffic jams, speed cameras, road works, traffic cameras, a route planner, forecasts, safety and traffic news. We take some of that data from NDW.
Which data stream from NDW does ANWB use for this?
For example, ANWB uses current traffic data (AVG) and the NDW data feed with current data about road works.
How do you process or apply NDW data? (how does it work?)
We combine the data from NDW with other data sources. Together they provide a picture of the traffic situation with which ANWB serves its customers. From the NDW data feed we use information about the cause of a traffic jam, where there are storage facilities, or route advice. We use the information about road works and closures in particular in our route planner. So that we always provide up-to-date route advice, taking closures into account.
What is the service that is ultimately delivered to the user of your service?
ANWB provides services to both companies and end users. The information we obtain from NDW, among others, is distributed via ANWB to 120 radio stations, teletext, our route planner and our app. But we also supply the information to companies that provide so-called narrowcasting in public buildings. These are the TV screens in, for example, reception halls of offices where the visitor can see the current traffic information as soon as he / she leaves the building.
