The iTIC’s process begins with collecting public traffic data from CCTV cameras provided by Thai Traffic Police,Expressway Authority of Thailand (EXAT) and Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA).Then, data is combined with those collected from Taxi,Bus,Logistic and Mobile Phone probes by iTIC (Tier 1). After that the combined traffic data will be processed into national standardized format with high quality ready to be broadcasted in real time.
Then traffic information output can be distributed by Tier 2 via various carriers such as GPRS (Mobile phone) or ADSL (Internet). An internet user can view real time traffic information by visiting HYPERLINK “http://www.iticfoundation.org”
The traffic information is also available through FM multiplex 102.5 MHz by Royal and Thai Air Force,88.5 MHz Royal Thai Navy under RDS-TMC (Radio Data System-Traffic Message Channel) standard which has been widely used in Europe and the United States. Travelers can receive traffic information via car and Portable Navigation Device (PND) without air time expenses.
In the near future, there will be more organizations (Tier 2) that are looking to obtain traffic information from iTIC with value added functions such as Points Of Interest (POI) before disseminating to end users.During the early stage the traffic information coverage will focus on Bangkok, Vicinity and Interstate Highways. However, the iTIC plans to extend the traffic service to nationwide.
