RADIO DATA SYSTEM - TRAFFIC MESSAGE CHANNEL. IN: CONFERENCE RECORD OF PAPERS PRESENTED AT THE FIRST VEHICLE NAVIGATION AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS CONFERENCE, TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA - SEPTEMBER 11-13, 1989
The Radio Data System (RDS) is a facility which allows for the transmission of a silent data channel using the sidebands of existing FM radio stations One of the features currently being developed for RDS is the Traffic Message Channel (TMC), which will offer a low-cost means of providing motorists with digitally encoded traffic data, optimized for in-car reception. Significant work has already been undertaken on messages to be broadcast, location codes and message management issues for RDS-TMC, which is reported in this paper. Work is continuing through the European DRIVE (Dedicated Road Infrastructure for Vehicle Safety in Europe) program toward the finalization of standards for RDS-TMC. Finally, the paper refers to a National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) contract being completed by Castle Rock Consultants, which examines the scope for similar development in North America.
