Fv-Info "Fleet-Based Traffic Information System
Published June 05, 1997 by Verlag Des Verein Deutscher Ingenieure GmbH in Germany
The technical concept of the Fleet-Based Traffic Information System describes a mobile system which is independent of location and functions over a wide area. It includes a device to generate computer processable reports from reports of traffic data which vary by location. Precise traffic conditions for a given area may be easily compiled by means of speech-controlled input device. With the help of a computer data bank in which a complete set of standard reports have been stored, a standard report will be identified, linked with a position determination and then automatically sent to an information center. This report is in the form of a data set associated with a particular region of the road network.
