USING THE PAGING NETWORK TO DEVELOP THE ATIS

This paper presents the development of an advanced traffic information system (ATIS) by using a paging network. The paging network is the communication method of the ATIS and can be characterized as follows: 1) allows broadcasting capabilities; 2) simplifies the network access procedures; and 3) reduces the transmission cost. A communication protocol was developed using the paging network as well as the database for the digital road map. Implementation of the traffic information server and in-vehicle terminal system is proceeding also. The traffic information server system supports the acquisition, processing, and transmission of traffic information through the paging network. The in-vehicle terminal system provides the various functions such as: 1) displaying the traffic congestion on the map; 2) retrieving the major feature, such as hospital, hotel, etc.; 3) navigating the current position by using the global positioning system receiver; 4) simulating the future changes of the traffic congestion; and 5) guiding the traveling path up to the destination. In contrast with other approaches: 1) it uses the paging network as its communication method; 2) it employs a simulation environment to support the forecasting capability of the traffic changes. Progress is being made to realize implementation of the proposed ATIS system. Several demonstration and simulation tests will illustrate the techniques described.
