GPS satellite navigation is becoming more important as a tool to enhance the safety of road users. With this in mind the development team of the Arrive Alive website approached TomTom and requested assistance in the efforts to create more awareness about GPS and road safety.
We also added content on this topic to the Arrive Alive road safety website, and would like to quote from this section:
• GPS is an essential element in the future of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS). ITS encompasses a broad range of communications-based information and electronics technologies.
• With the continuous modernization of GPS, we can expect even more effective systems for crash prevention, distress alerts and position notification, electronic mapping, and in-vehicle navigation with audible instructions.
• The benefits of less fuel consumption and congestion also directly contributes towards reductions in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, thereby having a positive effect on the environment
On the domain gps.arrivealive.co.za we will seek to address not only new products available in the market – but also to provide advice and assistance to road users on how to use these devices safely!
