Abstract

Whilst driving, people tend to listen specific genre of music or a specific set of radio stations. Over distance radio signal reception deteriorates to the point where continued listening is impractical, and for radio listeners in a vehicle they may need to tune to another station. It is possible to provide predictive automated selection of another radio station, or group of stations, based on geographical locations, thereby enhancing usability of the radio receiver systems.
