European Cooperation on Dual Mode Route Guidance - Perspectives for Advanced Research Partners 912840
Dual Mode Route Guidance (DMRG) is a concept which aims to combine “individual” route guidance (i.e. using on-board route calculation) and “collective” route guidance (i.e. using infrastructure-based route calculation) into one single system.
Because these two kinds of systems are based on competing philosophies addressing different social issues (individual control vs collective control), tremendous work has to be carried out before integration. The european automotive industry, in cooperation with E&S, has decided to concentrate efforts - within the frame of the PROMETHEUS programme and the DRIVE initiative - in order to turn the DMRG concept into a product before the end of the century.
