Vision of Mobile Information Services 2000-01-C017

As wireless technologies evolve, in-vehicle information services are becoming more and more essential to vehicle users.

This paper discusses mobile information services including DRGS. The focus is on the Japanese market where navigation technologies are the most advanced.
