Real-time traffic info on GPS

Real-time traffic info on GPS
By Lai Han-Wei


MOTORISTS can soon get more options in receiving real-time and localised traffic information with the launch of the Traffic Message Channel Location Table (TMC-LT).

TMC is a technology and protocol for delivering real-time traffic information to drivers. Commonly used in dynamic route navigation where traffic information allows Global Positioning Systems to route drivers around congestion, the technology is growing 'increasingly popular', said the Land Transport Authority on Thursday.

However, for TMC to work, a database of location codes for a country's entire road network grid is needed. The Location Table, which stores the location code for a country's road network, is a 'key component' for the traffic messages to be received in TMC format.

The development of the Singapore Location Table thus enables live traffic information to be fed directly into the map supplier's data, skipping the need to obtain and convert data. This can help fast track the development process and offer cost savings for the industry, the LTA added.

With the Location Table, motorists will get continuous and localised traffic on their navigation devices specific to their route and GPS location.

Dr Chin Kian Keong, Group Director, Transportation and Ticketing Technology at the LTA, said: 'The adoption of TMC and development of the Singapore Location Table provides another channel offering drivers easy access to timely and relevant traffic information wherever they are, so that they can decide on the best route to take.'
