Developing and deploying ITS goes beyond technical developments. Therefore, the ERTICO Partnership is developing several enablers that must support the development and deployment of ITS. Interoperability, Financing and Usage are just a few of such enablers. ERTICO has set-up an Interest Group on Interoperability and will continue to establish the different Interest Groups in the future.
The objective of the Interest Groups is not to re-invent the wheel but gather information and provide input to ongoing activities. The enablers are not always covered in the more technical oriented collaborative projects or deployment platforms so a group where these discussions can take place provides a huge benefit.
The Interest Groups can also be technical in nature as for instance the Interest Group “Interoperability“ that is addressing the key technical challenge ITS. ITS components are part of distributed systems exchanging data and messages. Therefore vendors should ensure their components are compliant to common technical specifications provided as part of public standards.
The Interoperability Interest Group also supports ERTICO’s Tought Leadership initiatives by contributing to white papers, participating in media and other activities.
