There are two main types of development in driver information systems: automatic navigation, and computerized voice response. Navigation systems are generally either independent vehicle systems, or they involve the evaluation of outside informacion. The latter raises questions and problems related to organization and finance. VDO are thus developing an independent vehicle navigation system, based on automatic dead reckoning. Voice synthesis as a means of providing immediate, but not distracting, information to a driver is also rapidly developing. Good voice synthesis depends upon accurate acoustic analysis, and the subsequent matching of appropriate speech synthesizing circuitry. (Author/TRRL)
