Enabling the Traffic Services of Tomorrow

Within the context of connected vehicles, and, particularly, automated mobility, these vehicles need to understand, precisely, the road environment in which they are driving. In the current situation, however, overlaps between standards are occurring more and more often. For seamless services that are interoperable and consistent on the information level, the interoperability of information over the interfaces needs to be guaranteed.

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). Via the press release linked below, we hope to inform you on the steps that were taken to get here and what our hopes are for future.
