Plessey Co has organised an Anglo-German consortium to bid for Autoguide, an electronic route guidance system due to be unveiled later this week by the UK Department of Transport (CI No 869): the system involves road-side beacons relaying continually updated traffic information to an in-car computer and the department is expected to seek bids for a UKP10m pilot scheme in West London later this week; the Plessey consortium is likely to consist of the Automible Association, who will gather traffic information, CAP Group Plc, will provide the software and Siemens AG, which has experience with a similar West German project and will make some of the hardware along with Plessey – it is also believed that Britain and West Germany are close to agreement for a draft standard for infra-red road-to-vehicle communication for route guidance systems.
