Intelematics gears up to drive SUNA further with TPEG


Intelematics is preparing to supplement its SUNA traffic information service with new data streams using the TPEG standard.

Intelematics has been providing the SUNA Traffic Channel service that provides live feeds to in-car GPS systems, smartphones and web applications to warn of congestion, closures and other issues. The emergence of the TPEG (Transport Protocol Experts Group) standard provides a way of delivering additional information to drivers.

"TPEG builds upon the successes of RDS-TMC in providing a global standard for providing real-time traffic information to vehicle and mobile navigation devices," said Adam Game, CEO of Intelematics.

"In building on these successes SUNA TPEG has the capability to provide a broader range of content applications to cover both traffic and other related motoring content, while also supporting public transport information making it a truly multi-modal transport information communications protocol."

SUNA TPEG will be able to deliver information including traffic incidents, road conditions, traffic congestion or delays, and potentially additional content such as fuel pricing, the availability of parking and public transport information. So if you mix car and train to get to work, you may be able to see if there are any parking spaces at your usual station or if you'll need to go to a station up or down the line, and whether you've got time to pick up a cup of coffee before the train arrives.

The new service will also be capable of delivering more finely-grained road information, such as lane closures or speed restrictions.


Like the existing SUNA Traffic Channel, SUNA TPEG will be distributed via multiple channels: digital radio, mobile data, Internet and digital video transmissions. The protocol supports two-way connectivity where available.

The current radio-based RDS-TMC service covers "more than 95% of the Australian main metropolitan population", according to Intelematics officials, with service in Victoria, New South Wales,  Queensland, ACT, South Australia and Western Australia.

Just over a year ago, SUNA Traffic Channel was improved by merging multiple sources of data and by providing greater broadcast redundancy.
