Advanced Driver Information Systems (ADIS) provide various combinations of communicated, stored, and derived information to aid in effectively planning and executing trips. Navigation or route guidance, taking real-time traffic conditions into consideration, is the central theme of most developmental and planned in-vehicle systems. This section includes ADIS examples ranging from a state-of-the-art system already on the market to hypothetical systems with all of the functions and features expected to evolve during the next 20 years. The first paper, based on the work of the ADIS Working Group of Mobility 2000, introduces ADIS concepts and provides an exposition of the information (1990-1995), advisory (1995-2000), and coordination (2000-2010) stage of evolution. The next paper describes the Bosch Travelpilot, which is the second generation of the Etak Navigator, an autonomous system introduced on the market in California in the mid-1980's. The third paper is on the ALI-SCOUT infrastructure-supported route guidance system now undergoing tests in Berlin. The last paper is on the requirements for communication links between in-vehicle equipment and the infrastructure, and outlines alternative approaches with particular emphasis on RF data communications networks.
