Traffic Information Service for Customers - Strategic Goals, Measures and Examples by the Austrian Motorway Company ASFINAG

Traveller Information Services are coming up across the different regions and modes of transport in Europe. But the vision of the “Connected Traveller” could not be met yet. Real Time Traveller Information Services are providing co-modal services only in prototype applications, rarely connecting regions and are not diversified for the different users yet. This paper will give a state of the art analysis of research and development (R&D) activities and current implementations in the field of traveller information services from a motorway operator perspective and will show the migration path towards co-modal and co-operative services for the traveller of tomorrow. Particular focus will be drawn on the strategic approach, goals and the derived measures by the example of ASFINAG, the Austrian Motorway and Expressway Company. The current telematics services portfolio are presented with the emphasis on cooperation models for operators in the role of content as well as service providers in the field of traffic and traveller information for customers.
