Live traffic information is distribute to navigation devices using RDS-TMC and TPEG. Many different traffic information services providers create, collect, and merge data for different countries worldwide.
Car and navigation manufacturers must test their navigation devices to ensure their devices will work consistently at different locations with different data from traffic information service providers and in order to avoid creating a new device for each market.
For RDS-TMC, TIC can be used in a test environment to broadcast traffic data samples provided by traffic information service providers, or manually created traffic event data, to RDS encoders connected to FM transmitters. TIC can also be used in a real FM broadcast environment to collect data and test broadcast quality.
For TPEG, TIC can be used to manually create traffic event and flow data, and to automatically convert this data into TPEG TEC and TPEG TFP messages which can then be distributed over internet HTTP using the standard THTTP request and response protocol.
