Floating Car Data (FCD), which is a mobile traffic data collection. Like the FCD system, the XFCD format determines the position data of the motor vehicle with a GPS system and the dynamic data such as the driving speed and the driving direction via sensors. In addition, the XFCD system takes into account the data of all driver assistance systems
. This means that the road conditions and traffic flow, among other things, are also recorded, as are situation-related traffic disruptions. The XFCD data are transmitted to the control center.
They flow into the digital traffic radio (TMC) and can also be evaluated by motor vehicles in the immediate vicinity.
