After the launch of the SUNA traffic services in Sydney and Brisbane on Wednesday (Melbourne services were launched earlier this year), many Current.com.au readers were interested in finding out more about how this system actually helps motorist negotiate traffic congestions, avoid delays and navigate around accidents. Below is a series of images which detail how the SUNA service interacts with a car’s GPS system to assist motorists.
In this image, the SUNA service is being received via a built-in GPS system in the dashboard. Small triangles on the streetview indicate a delay of over five minutes.
In this image, the screen is split into the traditional satellite navigation view and the SUNA message text, which informs drivers of upcoming delays. This information can also be spoken aloud.
Here, the SUNA text service is full screen, making the information easier to read whilst driving.
