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.
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.
