Nav­i­ga­tion app gives real-time info to driv­ers

New Straits Times - - News -

The Me­dia Prima Ra­dio Net­works (MPRN) has joined Waze for Broad­cast­ers, a nav­i­ga­tion ap­pli­ca­tion to pro­vide in­stant traf­fic in­for­ma­tion to driv­ers.

MPRN chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer See­lan Paul said the Waze Com­plete Traf­fic In­tel­li­gence, was an ap­pli­ca­tion which com­bined his­tor­i­cal and real-time traf­fic in­for­ma­tion from mo­torists.

He said MPRN ra­dio sta­tions — Fly FM, Hot FM, One FM and Kool FM — would be among the first to get the break­ing news from the roads.

“Their an­chors will be the first to re­port on traf­fic con­di­tions for lis­ten­ers,” he said yes­ter­day.

See­lan said MPRN lis­ten­ers re­lied on the ra­dio sta­tions to pro­vide the most ac­cu­rate and lat­est in­for­ma­tion on road sit­u­a­tions, such as con­struc­tions, marathon races, floods and traf­fic con­di­tions which could af­fect their travel on ma­jor roads dur­ing rush hour in the coun­try.

“Waze for Broad­cast­ers al­lows them to use cit­i­zen jour­nal­ism to shed valu­able in­sights we haven’t had ac­cess to pre­vi­ously, to gain a deeper un­der­stand­ing of re­al­time con­di­tions af­fect­ing driv­ers ev­ery day,” he said.
