Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS

Abstract

The project primarily aims to establish internationally accepted standards in radio data systems (RDS), TMC location coding, messages and message management, for use as part of a road traffic information system, bringing together the various national traffic messages developed to date, and creating an agreed international set. An additional objective is to ensure compatibility between the RDS-TMC receiver and other RTI equipment in the vehicle. Current proposals for one-sequence and multi-sequence messages were reviewed and evaluated in order to reach a starting consenus for experimental evaluation. A standardised protocol was successfully developed to achieve many of the driver information system objectives.
