Traffic Information : a Study of New Communications Channels for Information about Interference in the Traffic (English)
Abstract [en]

The Swedish traffic system is congested, especially in the urban areas; travellers face daily growing traffic jams and delays in public transport. In a congested traffic system, travellers need support to make smart and sustainable decisions and one such tool is traffic information.

One issue today is that too few travellers use traffic information in support of their travel. Research shows that travellers would see great value in receiving the information; however current systems do not meet their requirements. This is a problem since the society would benefit greatly from a well functioning traffic information system.

In this report, a number of channels that can be applicable for providing traffic information will be explored, with particular emphasis on interference information.The information channels are analyzed based upon the needs and requirements of the society and the traveller. The thesis of the report is: the more of these needs and requirements are met in a channel; the better is the channel to use for traffic information. The channels explored are: SMS, e-mail, RSS, the social medias: Facebook and Twitter but also mobile applications.

This report will demonstrate that SMS best meet the requirements of the society and the traveller. However, e-mail and RSS are two good complements or alternatives.When using social media, a two-way communication must be established between the sender and the receiver. Mobile applications are a good option for reaching travellers along their way and can be developed to meet the requirements of the society and travellers.
