Advanced Traveller Information Systems in Europe: A Review of the Prospects for Successful Commercial Operations 931923
In-vehicle information systems using new generations of communications and information technology are already with us. Developments in the European programmes DRIVE and PROMETHEUS are aimed at bringing closer full commercial implementation of sophisticated travel and traffic information systems which will provide benefits both to individual users and to the community in terms of improved transport efficiency.
The objectives of many projects include the integration of several applications of Advanced Road Transport Telematics (ATT), often focusing on the provision of better information to travellers.
This paper is based upon material to be published  in a book later in 1993. It provides information on the history and evolution of this potential multi-million pound industry. It reviews recent and current European developments concerned with in-vehicle information systems and the plans for integration with parking and public transport information, fleet management and traffic control systems.
It looks ahead to the potential widespread commercial implementation of systems being tested in Europe, and discusses some of the issues which remain outstanding.
