INFORMATION SYSTEMS: AN INTEGRAL PART OF FUTURE VEHICLES. IN: CONFERENCE RECORD OF PAPERS PRESENTED AT THE FIRST VEHICLE NAVIGATION AND INFORMATION SYSTEMS CONFERENCE, TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA - SEPTEMBER 11-13, 1989
This paper suggests how the driving experience might be improved by providing drivers with information brought on-board the vehicle by compact disc and transmitted to and from the vehicle through appropriate communication links. It suggests three possible feature sets - cellular telephone enhancements, travel assistance, and business/professional. The paper offers several travel assistance features as solutions to anticipated traffic congestion problems. It contends that historic solutions of additional roadway construction will not be possible. It stresses the need for cooperation between the automotive, electronic component and government traffic agencies in order that the most cost effective solutions be implemented.
