V-Traffic and Continental demonstrate the benefits of in-car digital radio in France
Mediamobile, is offering proof of concept of its latest range of V-Traffic services on DAB by taking part in a pilot project for digital radio launched by automotive manufacturer Continental. The joint objective of this partnership – also involving the broadcaster VDL, Radio France, and local radios – is to deliver a practical illustration of the many advantages of DAB radio for the French automotive industry.
Continental’s full-scale experiment in Yvelines is designed to demonstrate how digital radio can provide a “high-definition” radio experience enriched with multimedia content – at the same time as improving drivers’ road safety and comfort.
For the experiment, Continental and its partners have set up a DAB radio network in Rambouillet, in the outskirts of Paris, featuring all the technical infrastructure needed to collect content and programmes, perform encoding – and broadcast.
The broadcasted radio programmes and information services are picked up by and displayed on the embedded Continental system.
