Chapter 2. iTV Scenarios > Transportation Scenarios

2.11. Transportation Scenarios

In Europe, interactive TV is popular for performing a variety of online reservation and scheduling tasks. In particular, iTV applications are useful for making reservations and monitoring schedules of trains, buses, and flights.

2.11.1. Airport Flight Monitors

One popular application is the broadcast of flight monitor data providing real-time arrival and departure information, the same information that traditional airport terminals provide (see Figure 2.26). With this application, the viewer selects the service and chooses from a menu of possible displays. The search and resulting display could be organized according to arrival or departure times, airlines, flight numbers, or destinations. The viewer can select the next or previous screen or go back to the menu screen.
