Title (EN) SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR PROVIDING TRAFFIC INFORMATION
(FR) SYSTÈMES ET PROCÉDÉS DE FOURNITURE D'INFORMATIONS DE TRAFIC
Abstract:
(EN) There is disclosed a method for providing information regarding traffic conditions within a road network in an area covered by an electronic map, the electronic map comprising a plurality of segments representing roads of the road network. The method involves obtaining traffic data from a traffic data source (200) having a known position relative to the road network. The position of the traffic data source (200) is then used to identify within the electronic map a set of roads falling within a predefined distance of the traffic data source (200). From this set, a determination is then made as to which of the road names in the electronic map best matches a road name included in the traffic data for defining the location of the traffic conditions. The traffic point location (204) representing the location of the traffic conditions within the electronic map can then be determined so that information indicative of the traffic conditions may be provided for inclusion into the map. Also disclosed are systems, particularly servers, for performing such methods.
(FR) L'invention concerne un procédé de fourniture d'informations concernant des conditions de trafic à l'intérieur d'un réseau routier dans une zone couverte par une carte électronique, la carte électronique comprenant une pluralité de segments représentant des routes du réseau routier. Le procédé consiste à obtenir des données de trafic d'une source de données de trafic (200) ayant une position connue par rapport au réseau routier. La position de la source de données de trafic (200) est ensuite utilisée pour identifier dans la carte électronique un ensemble de routes comprises dans une distance prédéfinie de la source de données de trafic (200). À partir de cet ensemble, une détermination est ensuite faite quant à savoir les noms de route dans la carte électronique qui correspondent le mieux à un nom de route inclus dans les données de trafic permettant de définir l'emplacement des conditions de trafic. L'emplacement de point de trafic (204) représentant l'emplacement des conditions de trafic à l'intérieur de la carte électronique peut ensuite être déterminé de telle sorte que des informations indicatives des conditions de trafic puissent être fournies pour inclusion dans la carte. L'invention concerne également des systèmes, en particulier des serveurs, permettant de mettre en œuvre de tels procédés.
