ROUTE PLANNING AND GUIDANCE: A LITERATURE STUDY

ROUTEPLANNING EN -GELEIDING: EEN LITERATUURSTUDIE

This report contains an evaluation of the literature dealing with the formal components of route guidance systems that could function optimally from a user's point of view. A distinction must be made between: (a) route planning, that is, the generation of alternative routes and the selection of one among them; (b) the development of the resulting pattern of expectancies; (C) route guidance proper (during A trip). Only incidentally does the literature present significant information on these aspects of route planning and guidance. Hardly ever is there a systematic body of psychological knowledge of these processes. Therefore the report concludes with recommendations for empirical research that could fill the gaps identified in the literature.(a)
