Waze is hands down one of the best uses for avoiding surprises on the go. This is because one of the largest and best communities reports every incident that comes their way. Soon, however, Waze will have another novelty to prevent accidents and other mishaps, but it does not depend directly on the warnings of other users.
Waze has updates in the alerts that don’t depend on users!
The big news at Waze is about flooding and the way it’s reported. For example, if a street was flooded, we would not receive any information until someone discovered it and reported it in the app. It won’t be necessary now. According to the autoevolution website, Waze will benefit from a new partnership between Google and FloodMapp.
FloodMapp has developed a real-time system that analyzes certain data to predict exactly where a flood will occur. This information is then sent to Waze, where it can be used to warn drivers if their journey brings them too close to flooded roads. That said, no one has to reach a flooded street first to report the incident. Everyone will know before they get there.
This novelty will first be available in the US. However, if all goes well, it should reach more regions.
This is unquestionably good news, especially at a time when some warnings are failing.
This problem was discovered a few weeks ago and in fact the information that is incorrectly displayed is that from stop operations and radars as reported by the AutoEvolution website.
That discussion has already reached the Waze forums where some more details will be revealed.
The first thing people noticed was that when they got to a place where there was previously a radar, there was no display or warning. Needless to say, this can result in large fines. Especially for those who normally walk with their foot on the pedal.
However, some users have already had a different experience. They flagged a STOP operation that was not in progress, for testing purposes only, and it appeared, but the radar indicator did not. In other cases the opposite happens.
At the moment it is not known for certain what is causing this problem. The worst part is that this is a situation that does not affect everyone. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn’t. All of this makes it difficult to find a solution.
