Several technologies for motorists ease their travel on today's congested roads. However, these services aren't linked to each other and using them while driving can be dangerously distracting. This article reports on an integrated system that uses congestion information to guide routing, both in advance and while a journey is being undertaken. GPS is used to track vehicles while they undertake journeys, and the GSM short message service is used to maintain communications between a moving vehicle and a central planning service.
