Bing Starts Using Traffic Data in Real Time From Nokia

Microsoft partnership results with Nokia still showing up and not limited to Windows Phone. On Thursday (24), the Finnish announced the arrival of traffic information and the Nokia paths algorithm Maps to Bing, dramatically improving Microsoft’s map service, especially in Brazil.

The Bing Maps started to show information about the real – time traffic to various locations, including cities in Brazil and 23 more countries, including the United States, Portugal, Canada, France, Italy and the UK. By activating the traffic information, the map is colored according to the slowness of the streets and avenues – green indicates that everything is running smoothly, while the red is for you to prepare psychologically to be alternating between the first gear and the point dead.

The algorithm responsible for determining paths from one point to another was also imported from Nokia to Bing. My experience with Nokia Maps is great – at least in São Paulo, the maps are even more updated than the service Google (which did not show a newly opened overpass) and the paths are generally more efficient. And Bing Maps has never been so good, so much so that for some time he could not get the Paulista Avenue, one of the most important city.

The Windows Phone native maps app uses Bing and have not received the news, but Nokia says that its technology will be increasingly present in smartphones and mobile applications of the Microsoft system. Thus, the Bing map service finally starts to become a competitor to match Google Maps.
