INRIX is paid in the VPP based on its data quality as determined in the validation process, with the methodology posted on the VPP web site. If data quality falls out of tolerance in the most recent tests, INRIX will receive a reduced fee. If quality problems were severe – worse than 15MPH error rates for instance – INRIX could even feasibly receive no monthly payment unless/until data quality improves. Further, the process is designed to reward/penalize data quality in congested conditions, with 50% of INRIX’s monthly payment tied to the quality of data when ground truth speeds are 45 MPH or less. To date, overall nearly 4 years of the project, INRIX has not had a single quality deduction.
INRIX is now partnering with Traffax to offer to its other public sector customers the same quality and performance regime. INRIX will contract with Traffax, but all testing will be conducted independently as with the VPP, and results made available to the agency customer.
