Progress on DATEX II data model standards

Submitted by iancornwell on Thursday, 12 September, 2019 - 13:58

Parts 4 (VMS) and 5 (Measured and elaborated data) of the DATEX II standard EN 16157 are now entering CEN “enquiry” – the last stage at which technical comments can be made, through national standards bodies. Comment resolution will allow a DATEX II release (referred to as 3.1) in Spring 2020 to include the version 3 forms of VMS and RoadTrafficData namespaces. Due to the modular approach of DATEX II version 3, users shouldn’t think in terms of supporting v3.0 or v3.1 or any specific v3.X, but rather supporting v3 with a selection of modules (technically “namespaces”). Each release 3.X will increase the number of modules available.

With the collaboration of DATEX II and the C-Roads Platform, two major European initiatives for harmonisation join forces against the background of emerging cooperative intelligent transport services (C-ITS). Both of them have used various opportunities to demonstrate their technical and strategic importance in increasing the safety and efficiency of transport in Europe and beyond. With high potential for synergies, a cooperation between DATEX II and C-Roads was the logical next step. The ITS Europe Congress 2019 in Eindhoven provides the backdrop for the signature of a collaboration agreement.
