The Road to Digital Traffic Data Services
On 17th March 2011, TISA held its first webinar in cooperation with ERTICO. During this webinar, Dave Francis, ITIS, explained how the Digital Radio switch-over in the UK will put some big challenges in front of Service Providers and Terminal Device Manufacturers. He went on to explain that there are technical issues to overcome is FM is switched off, because services for the RDS-TMC supported Navigation Systems will be lost. This would not only affect the development of new products but also the very large legacy of vehicles on the road. The time pressure will require a transitional solution.
