Avancerad Trafiktjänst (Swedish)
More and more travellers use navigation-aid software to find the way while driving. Most of todays systems use static maps with little or no information at all about currently yeilding roads conditions and disturbances in the network. It is desirable for such services
in the future to include information about road works, accidents, surface conditions and other types of events that affects what route is currently the best.
It is also desirable to notify users about changes in the prerequisites of the chosen route after they have started their trip.
This thesis investigates methods to include dynamic traffic information in route calculations and notifying users when the characteristics change for their chosen route.
The thesis utilizes dynamic traffic information from The Swedish Road Agencys (Vägverket) central database for traffic information, TRISS and calculates affected clients with help of positioning through the GSM network.
