The COYOTE app has allowed many drivers and travel enthusiasts to increase safety and comfort while using the car and in fact the success is now total
Last year on this same date COYOTE wished you a happy new year, a 2020 that was difficult and suffered, which closed the whole of Italy at home for two long months, forcing it to face an economic and social crisis never seen before. The pandemic has also strongly affected mobility but COYOTE reacted by improving their service providing new warnings that have helped the driver to drive more and more safely.
The year began with the spread of the virus and Italy closed in a general lockdown; COYOTE has promoted, together with other organizations and companies, the message #iorestoacasa, a fundamental behavior to be followed to curb the race of the virus. In those months however, the company continued to develop new alerts and improve service by inserting MEN AT WORK, an important message for the safety of the motorist in the complex Italian motorway world, made up of many construction sites that often create kilometric queues. In conjunction with the Tour of Italy, which was moved in October, COYOTE unveiled the new EVENTS alert, which signaled to the motorist the passage areas of the tour, thus helping to improve traffic. EVENTS is a very useful alert because it signals all the events in place that can create disruption to mobility (concerts, football matches, etc.).
COYOTE’s work has therefore been continuous even in a year where mobility has been heavily penalized, working to improve the service (3,000 speed camera locations added, updating 15,000km with new speed limits) and continuing to guarantee the Community a Premium service. The result obtained was in fact an increase of + 10% of users who chose the COYOTE service in addition to the 5 million customers in Europe.
COYOTE continues to innovate in 2021
Now the expected 2021 begins and with the start of the year COYOTE is focusing more and more on the app, a solution appreciated by the Community, available for Android and iOS and adding a new alert WORK IN PROGRESS, already available for the Community as a temporary alert, but in the coming months the official sources of Autostrade will be inserted and monitored, detecting a series of construction sites in our territory, informing the driver 30 km in advance. We know very well that road construction sites must and are adequately indicated with the appropriate signs, but in most situations motorists are not very attentive to these indications, continuing to drive as if nothing had happened. Informing in advance with the new WORK IN PROGRESS alert of the presence of a construction site with an audio and visual warning suggests to the motorist greater attention so as to increase driving safety.
The new alert is already available for the COYOTE app in versione Classic o Extend, compatible with CarPlay and Android Auto and for COYOTE NAV +. To use the new alert, the user does not have to carry out any updating operations as, through the appropriate signaling command, the alert is already accessible. This new alert, together with constant updates of speed limits and service monitoring as well as the ability to confirm alerts via voice command for users of the COYOTE APP for iOS, confirms COYOTE’s commitment to offer a premium driver assistance service to increase road safety for motorists and to inform them in real time on speed limits, fixed speed cameras, mobile speed cameras, traffic light cameras, Tutor sections (with average speed from gate to gate), risk areas, traffic, accidents and dangers along the route.
