Hannover, Germany - Mar 5, 2012 - The TPEG (Transport Protocol Experts Group) is the enabling technology for a new generation of traffic information services that are distributed through digital channels.Because of its small demand on transmission bandwidth it is particularly well suited for digital broadcasting (DAB, DRM, DVBx). Fraunhofer First and Frontier Silicon are cooperating on developing components to facilitate the reception of TPEG services via digital broadcasting (DAB+). At CeBIT 2012, a showcase application will demonstrate the functionality of TPEG via DAB+.

For the showcase, prototype hardware was equipped with a Frontier Silicon DAB+ module capable of streaming broadcast TPEG data usingAUTODAB1.0 software. For receiving, decoding and managing TPEG-Data Fraunhofer's TPEG Client-Kit was implemented. The kit facilitates management of TPEG messages with little memory requirements and makes them available to subsequent applications. At CeBIT the partners will demonstrate their TPEG monitoring app on an Android device. It collects incoming TPEG messages and visualizes them on an interactive map. Additional information on the respective messages can be viewed by clicking on them. Innovative navigation solutions are made possible through GPS localization.

CeBIT runs March 6-10, 2012, in Hannover, Germany.
