Smart Trek: Traffic Information Channel
MPG Version Demo
The Traffic Channel was deployed on Channel 76, the UWTV cable channel, in Seattle effective June 1, 1998. This station, which broadcasts new, experimental technologies, is now available via webcast and can be viewed at www.washington.edu/uw2tv/. Their schedule page lists the broadcast times for Trafchan.
The development of a professional quality traffic information channel for broadcast via television was one component of the Smart Trek project. The final version included traffic and traveler information such as real-time video images from surveillance cameras. This programming was intially deployed on the University of Washington cable television channel but is portable to other TV stations. Details about the deployment configuration can be found below.
