TMC PluS -- A New Approach for a Professional TMC Service In Austria

The main difference to other professional services in Europe is that TMCplus is not encrypted and can be used without additional service costs. The area wide TMCplus service has officially been started on July 1st 2009 in Austria. The goal of TMCplus is to provide the road user more precise and more topical traffic information on the navigation device. Furthermore the reliability of the traffic messages shall increase and the clearing of the messages has been optimized. In addition ASFINAG and ORF have set up a conformance lab for TMC receivers where the receiver manufacturers have the possibility on a voluntary basis to test their receivers concerning compatibility with the TMCplus service.
