Collaboration, harmonization and standardization are key in the European playing field. This session will discuss traffic management in a digital world, introducing both the European ITS Platform (EU EIP) and the European standard for the exchange of traffic related data, DATEX II.
With the rapidly accelerating digitalization and automation of the ITS domain, the urgency to ensure consistency on the information level becomes more and more obvious.
On the 23rd and 24th of May the 5th DATEX II Forum was held in the LEF Future Meeting Center in Utrecht, the Netherlands. 143 participants from 20 different countries came together to learn more about the standard, to exchange knowledge with the rest of the community and to enter into discussions about the future.
In many countries the need for a detailed information model is recognised and properly reflected by DATEX II. However, this level of detail is perceived as complex and heavy for relative simple information services that are supported by app developers.
