Crowd-sourcing map app Waze announced a new initiative in Malaysia as part of a partnership with Kuala Lumpur’s Tun Razak Exchange (TRX) to help drivers in the Malaysian capital “move better” and “stay safe.” Bluetooth-enabled devices—known simply as Waze Beacons—will be installed across TRX’s basement roads that lead to car parks within the development.

These Beacons are battery-operated, low-energy transmitters that are installed on tunnel walls. Then a wireless signal is transmitted that can be received by mobile devices that support Bluetooth. Interestingly, these Beacons aren’t just compatible with Waze. Other navigation services such as Google Maps can also benefit from the tech free of charge.
