The application enables the user to access up to date traffic news from their IP Phone. It also alerts the user to incidents that may cause them to be delayed, giving the user a chance to change their route or find an alternative mode of travel.


Operational Overview

Operational Overview:

  • A Traffic Info application on the phone interacts with the server using XML. The server provides XML to the phone which the application renders into a screen for the user to interact with. The user’s interaction with the phone results in key-value pairs being passed back to the server for processing.
  • The server in turn sends a HTTP Request to web-based services and obtains an XML file in TPEG (Transport Protocol Experts Group).
  • The server then sends the XML page retreived from web-based services to the IP Phone.
