Welcome to DATEX II
We are happy to announce the 6th DATEX II Forum will be held on the 25th and 26th of November 2020.
COVID-19 is affecting all of our lives. It impacts our private and work life in an unprecedented way. No one can tell at the moment how things will evolve and what restrictions for conventions, traveling and social distancing will stay in place until when.
This uncertainty affects of course also the set-up of this year’s DATEX II Forum. As our main goal for the Forum has always been to bring the DATEX II community together to exchange experiences, we hope to organize a physical Forum in Paris. However, your health and safety must come first and therefore a real convention might not be possible. We are therefore considering alternatives to disseminate the tremendous progress and interesting new capabilities of DATEX II.
An update on the set-up of the Forum will follow in May and can be found on this website. One thing is for sure: DATEX II will inform you on the announced dates about its achievements At the Heart of Connectivity!
You have come to the right place for information on DATEX II. The standard for the exchange of traffic related data.
This website is gradually growing, visit often to benefit from updates as soon as possible.
We are pleased to share that there is now extended user documentation available on the Collaborative ITS Services (CIS) Demonstrator.
This demonstrator shows how to implement and use the features that are part of the specification for Collaborative ITS Services that has been developed under the Exchange framework.
The CIS demonstrator documentation, now available in a modern, visual way, can be found here
Together, DATEX II and TN-ITS are taking on the challenge of interoperability of standards in the traffic management domain. By taking small steps, with a coalition of the willing, we aim to start improving the current situation. The focus in the first stage will be on developing semantical interoperability between DATEX II and TN-ITS within the scope of Management of Electronic Traffic Regulations (METR).
As part of the last DATEX II Steering Group meeting held in Athens, Vasilis Mizaras, senior ITS expert from the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas - Hellenic Institute of Transport, made a presentation explaining the status and prospects of the DATEX II deployment of ITS in Greece.
Do you want to know what's true and what's not about Urban Traffic Management & Control and DATEX II standards? Our DATEX II expert Ian Cornwell has written an interesting article about a few myths that surround UTMC and DATEX II standards. Read the article here!
One of the sessions at the 2019 Digital Transport Days in Helsinki focused on (the future of) National Access Points in Europe: ‘Building a data layer: Network of national (data) access points -NAP’. The idea of launching a bottom-up group of NAPs and National Bodies (NBs) was presented by EU EIP expert Timo Hoffmann, with the goal to exchange knowledge and experiences, common approaches, data standards, how to get data from international organisations, etc.
We are happy to announce that DATEX II schema generation tools (web and windows) are updated with JSON schema support.
In the tools it’s now possible to choose to generate schema as either XML schema or JSON schema.
Since there is still some ongoing work, the JSON schema support has been given the status Release candidate.
