Soon there was the need to share this information to ITS service providers in order to accommodate them with the relevant information.
Nowadays this data provision is searchable and accessible via the NAPs. By means of DATEX II, traffic information and traffic management information is published in a way that is language independent and not constrained by presentation format or end-user service-channel restrictions.
This means that there is no room for misunderstandings and / or translation errors by the recipient, but the recipient can choose to transform the data into spoken text, an image on a map, or integrate it in a navigation calculation.
The increasing scale on which ITS services are being dimensioned, as well as the new digitization requirements arising from self-driving cars, require increased use of standards and thus also challenges the DATEX II community accordingly.
Within the scope of NAPCORE, DATEX II will evolve to support new data distribution technologies andwork on joint ontologies that have cross-domain relevance within the mobility sector.
A substantial DATEX II support ecosystem is available at www.datex2.eu
