DYNAMIC ROUTE GUIDANCE AND INFORMATION TECHNOLOGIES

The development of dynamic route guidance (DRG) systems is outlined and current developments summarised. The experience gained from the Berlin LISB field trial is then discussed. Details are given of: (a) the network; (b) the principles behind guidance to destinations; (c) the updating and prediction of travel times; (d) incident management; and (e) safety aspects of using dynamic route guidance systems. Estimates of how widespread DRG use will become, plans by highway authorities to integrate DRG with urban traffic control and developments to include more information are outlined.
