Weather Centrals 3D Traffic application Traffic data ingested every minute Traffic data from Metro Traffic Incidents are not automatically put on traffic system which allows for independent verification After an incident is verified, it is activated manually and an icon specific to the incident is generated and placed at correct location Traffic report goes on-air to viewers Our Road Map to Accurate Traffic Reporting
Verification – Through internet partners including MDOT, law-enforcement agencies, etc. Verification internally assisted by our Assignment Desk, Producer(s), Executive Producer(s), Chopper as necessary to ensure accuracy Rely heavily on these associates We think of our viewers as customers – Not everybody is watching Customers are on Twitter, Facebook and WXYZ.com On-air, Twitter, Traffic Blog Facebook, WXYZ.com – Im everywhere And, you heard it here first!!! Our new Traffic App for iPhone and Android devices (test launch in a couple of weeks with launch soon after!) MDOT Traffic Cameras – VITAL to my reporting. Very important for visual. Customers rely on getting this visual.
Also generate Gas Prices, Traffic Flys, Alternate Routes
Redundancy If system fails or to augment our 3D Traffic product Google Earth News Navigator (an in-house cousin of 3D Traffic) UTouch – Our in-studio tablet
How Can We Partner to Better Serve OUR Customers Always important to have the MDOT traffic cameras MDOT could provide volume data for each route (this would assist us in the impact an incident has on our customers) Development of a system that takes communications with law enforcement (for example radio comms to trooper) to automatically generate a text / email or other notification direct to me (like a voice-to-text system)
