Decoding Taxi Mobile Data Terminal Signals with RTL-SDR

In this video YouTube user nerdsville shows decoding of Autocab mobile data terminal (MDT) signals. He also shows an example of the not yet decodable Auriga MDT signals at about 3:20 into the video. MDT’s are displays attached to taxis which are used to help taxis find transport jobs.

He uses SDRSharp, an rtl-sdr dongle and the Taxi MDT Decoder java program. More information about Taxi MDT Decoder can be found here.

Update: Nerdsville has done a writeup of his Taxi MDT Decoding video on his Radio Antics blog.
