The Car Information and Navigation System CARIN and the Use of Compact Disc Interactive 870139
The main aspects of the Philips electronic car information and navigation system CARIN are described. Digital road maps are used for enhancing the vehicle-locating system, automatic route planning and driver guidance. The digital maps are stored on Compact Discs according to the CD-I, Compact Disc Interactive, standard. CD-I provides the indispensable extension of the Compact Disc Digital Audio standard required for consumer-oriented products. It combines the storage of audio, video, and computer data with powerful computing facilities, so that a vast variety of compatible interactive home and car applications becomes feasible.
