CONSIDERATIONS FOR THE APPLICATION OF A ROUTE GUIDANCE SYSTEM IN THE GREATER TORONTO AREA. IN: CONFERENCE RECORD OF PAPERS PRESENTED AT THE FIRST VEHICLE NAVIGATION AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS CONFERENCE, TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA - SEPTEMBER 11-13, 1989

This paper examines the feasibility of applying a route guidance system of the Q-Route type within the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and explores some of the system design considerations that would have to be considered before embarking on such a project. The need for a comprehensive system, which can deal consistently with all the different types of dissemination media is emphasized, and the development of a Central Traffic Information Clearance Centre (CTICC) is proposed as a hub to link the various traffic control centres within the GTA. Proposed configurations for the traffic/map/routing data base are presented and the consequences of applying different communications systems for disseminating these data are explored.
