EXPERIENCE WITH AN ADVANCED TRAVELER INFORMATION SYSTEM TRIAL TEST IN THE METROPOLITAN NEW YORK CITY AREA

This paper reviews an advanced traveler information, advisory, and emergency notification and security service being designed and tested by NYNEX Venture Company in collaboration with other private companies, state and local agencies, and a university. This service, known as Project NorthStar, has been tested in the New York City metropolitan area with the use of cellular telephone, global positioning system (GPS) technology, and a geographical information system (GIS). Plans are underway to continue this test for the purpose of evaluating the costs and benefits associated with low-cost FM subcarrier communication technology and a portable digital assistant and speech synthesizer.
