Cab guidance system - requirements and status report

Conference:

Abstract

There have been increasing calls from taxi operators for a taxiguidance system based on single, functional modules which can be financed one at a time and thus permit a picemeal extension of their system up to the point of full automation. It is the purpose of this research project to develop such a system in response to these demands. A preliminary investigation clarified the operational and technical prerequisites. On the basis of this study, two firms began, in 1983, to develop, construct and test one aspect of such a system, i.e. the communication between client and headquarters. The results lead us to conclude that our chosen format - a close cooperation between the research consultant, the taxi operators and the firms in charge of development - has been essential for the success of that project. Under the auspices of the research grants for the umbrella project ('Development of Components'), and based on the results on such projects as BON, BFB etc., we have now begun to look into the module 'Wireless Data Transfer' and 'Vehicle Tracing'. A parallel project is investigating the module 'Central Data Processing'.
