Genesis PULSE Mobile App Using New Waze SDK

Using Genesis PULSE™ with Waze integration, 911 call centers can easily pinpoint traffic events, such as construction, congestion or accidents. Using this data, dispatchers can send emergency units along faster routes, avoiding delays.

Today, Genesis is pleased to announce Genesis PULSE is launching a new in-vehicle mobile app with Waze integration. It provides first responders not only with current road conditions, but real-time, turn-by-turn navigation. All of the features of Waze and Genesis PULSE — combined in one powerful mobile interface.

The development of the PULSE mobile app is made possible by the Waze Transport SDK (software development kit), which was announced by Waze today. The SDK allows partners in the Waze Connected Citizens Program to easily implement some of Waze’s most useful features, natively in their own apps.

USA Today: Chad Richey on Improving Commuting Through Map Editing

Google’s amazing new self-driving cars may be the coming wave of the future, but sadly, they will not eliminate traffic issues. Fortunately, the Waze traffic app (owned by Google) is already on the front lines, fighting traffic one “Wazer” at a time. “Robots will still need to know the best route. We have a nice juicy role,” says Di-Ann Eisnor, vice president of platform and partnerships for Waze.

“A lot of public safety is based on the accuracy of map data.”
— Chad Richey, PULSE Product Manager

PULSE Product Manager Chad Richey is a Waze and Google volunteer who spends 30-40 hours a week editing their maps. “Knowing a change I make on a map can be beneficial to hundreds of thousands of people is gratifying,” says Chad Richey. “A lot of public safety is based on the accuracy of map data. Recent hurricanes and floods in Texas and South Carolina were instantly updated in Waze, because editors from all over the country were pitching in, but with a desire to help out.”

Genesis PULSE is proud to be a partner in the Waze Connected Citizens Program.
