Originally published in 1999, this volume contains a systematic collection of both theoretical and applied studies on user information systems for road users. It is generally expected that reliable information offered to road users will improve the use of scarce capacity on transport networks but from a research perspective the question arises whether the provision of such hard and software will influence the behaviour of road users to such an extent that a more desirable traffic situation will emerge. The book contains European, American and Asian contributions and presents advances and findings in the field of theoretical, simulation and empricial models on driver information systems and behaviour, whilst also paying attention to the design of such systems.

About the Series

Routledge Library Editions: The Economics and Business of Technology

Originally published between 1967 and 1999 the 50 volumes in this set examine the impact of technology on economics and international business. The volumes:

  • Present a synthesis of business functions and economic analysis and ask what the implications for skills development are and the effect of public policy
  • Report on global companies' experience with computers in company training in such areas as banking, finance, insurance, manufacturing, IT, the retail industry, transport, telecommunications and energy.
  • Look at the way in which some businesses in high technology manufacturing industry have organised their structures and processes in order to manage product innovation effectively.
