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.
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’.
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.

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.
