European trip planning system

Objective

The main objective of this project is to design, install and evaluate a prototype trip planning system.

EUROTRIP is producing a demonstration trip planning system installed as part of a field test. EUROTRIP will be based upon a detailed specification for a Europe wide system. Evaluation of the demonstration system will lead to recommendations regarding the installation of a European system.

EUROTRIP is providing a detailed specification for the introduction of a European trip planning system. This will incorporate details of the software, hardware, data and infrastructure required for such a system. The report will recommend how such a system could be developed and discuss the benefits that will be obtained.

This project is concerned primarily with information provided to the user prior to a journey being made. Access to information will be possible during a journey using static or mobile access facilities. This information will be complementary to that produced by dynamic information systems.

Key Issues

Specification of the requirements of all groups of systems users;
Market research to establish the demand for such a system;
Outline specification based upon demand, requirements and suitable algorithms and a detailed data model;
Examination of links to transport information and control systems both within and outside the DRIVE programme;
Specification for a EUROTRIP system, prototype development installation as part of a field test.
