The POSSE project has undertaken a range of activities to facilitate the exchange and sharing of knowledge and experience on how to develop, implement and maintain Open Specifications and Standards for Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) as applied to urban road traffic management.
The POSSE brochure gives a good introduction to Open Specifications and Standards, and it is aimed at all those involved in ITS and traffic management, whether a traffic manager or systems supplier or regional or national government.
How to use and promote the development of Open Specifications and Standards can be a difficult concept to understand for those not already familiar with their use. This brochure wants to ensure that this is not a barrier to their development and implementation across Europe. The opportunity to exchange knowledge between project partners with a very wide range of ITS systems, experiences and challenges has been very beneficial to all parties. Not only has it benefited the transfer sites but has also given ideas to the good practice initiatives on how they could develop in the future.
