TRAFFIC INFORMATION IN THE ILE DE FRANCE REGION FROM DEPARTURE TO ARRIVAL

The Ile de France Region suffers from many queues every day in and around Paris, leading the road authorities to apply traffic management strategies according to the type of network and to inform the driver as soon as possible. Diverting the driver prior to or during his trip can affect departure and arrival times, thus improving the whole traffic condition. A high level of automatic equipment for data collection is available and can be used to inform drivers, such as variable message signs, in-vehicle systems, and mobile phones. The development of mobile phones in France, and especially in the Ile de France Region, combined with a very dense traffic situation has led the road authority responsible for traffic management on the expressways around Paris, to set up an experimental mock-up open to mobile phone users. The information delivered during the trip in the car may be reached as well from a normal telephone as a pre-trip service, but the vocal man-machine interface (MMI) has been designed especially for use while driving. The experiments reveal that the present state of the technology is not reliable enough to build up a fully automatic service with commercial application due to the quality of the radio communication link and a noisy environment. An intermediary service is planned with a mixture of human interface for analysis of the question and an operational management tool for an automatic answer. This half-automatic product will solve the problem of simultaneous calls allowing quicker answers with a reduced set of human operators.
