Abstract

Traffic signs and rules play an important role in our daily life. Knowledge of them is crucial for surviving. However, every country has its own traffic regulations and they often differ in subtle ways. Also, the official traffic regulations are often rather hard to read and comprehend for the average person. In a time of globalization when more and more people live or travel abroad there is a growing need for a universal tool which would easily explain differences between the traffic regulations in various countries. Due to the internationality of such a tool, the choice of language represents a huge problem. In this paper we present DynEST, a unique software solution for this problem. DynEST explains traffic regulations without words, just using dynamic i.e. animated symbols. A simple yet powerful architecture of the software provides great flexibility for e.g. cross-comparing any two countries in the world. We hope that DynEST is a first step towards a European driving license and more security in traffic.
