The demonstration features the collection of event and advice data with real-time location information from a roadwork vehicle. This is then processed by the TIC software and then the information is relayed to the driver of the BMW vehicle as a Local Hazard Warning (LHW) message on their navigation device.
LHW will be offered as a commercial service in 2012 in Germany and is expected to improve safety in work zones.
Attendees to the ITS World Congress will have an opportunity to preview the service and participate in a ride-along to experience the LHW technology demonstration firsthand in Orlando.
