SaaS and conversion of traffic data standards
The customer sends the data to the platform in a standard. Our technology platform selects the events to be translated, converts them, and makes them available in the desired standard. The service supports conversion to and from Datex II, in accordance with EU policies.
One usage scenario is the publication of information via FM radio, for which the data is now distributed in RDS-TMC standards, starting from a Datex-based platform. For Digital Audio Broadcasting, a conversion from Datex I – II to the DAB-TPEG standard defined by the European Broadcasting Union will be required.
Event creation from FCD
The platform employs an original process, for which a European Patent and U.S. Patent. Patent has been granted, to create traffic events in text format and Datex I – II, thus expanding the Traffic Information Center’s event database.
TMC traffic events customization by a geographic audience
The RDS-TMC standard experiences the limit of 300 messages that can be included per single periodic transmission, which is insufficient to transmit traffic information over a large territory.
The limitation is that the most helpful information for users of the RDS-TMC service concerns closer events geographically.
The solution we offer allows us to differentiate the TMC information sent to each transmitter or group of transmitters. According to the location code present in the platform’s messages, the events are assigned to the relevant areas and, therefore, to the area transmitters.
Traffic events editor
The events database management system allows the storage, consultation, and modification of events using a GUI accessible from a web browser.
Therefore, the event database allows the Traffic Information Center operators to create, modify, and manage events automatically or manually.
