Vehicle Trip Planning and Route Guidance

Equipment Package: Vehicle Trip Planning and Route Guidance

Description: This equipment package includes the in-vehicle system that coordinates with a traveler information center to provide a personalized trip plan to the driver. The trip plan is calculated by the Information Service Provider based on preferences and constraints supplied by the driver and provided to the driver for confirmation.

Coordination with the Information Service Provider may continue during the trip so that the route plan can be modified to account for new information. Many equipment configurations are possible including in-vehicle systems that provide a basic trip plan to the driver as well as more sophisticated systems that can provide turn by turn guidance to the driver along the route.
