About the symposium
The ITS standard in ISO TC204 is an important key to drive the ITS industry in the country and the future of transport such as the connected and automated vehicle. The symposium will be a joint effort of the Japanese Government, Japanese SAE, Thai Industrial Standard Institute(TISI), National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA), ITS Thailand and Tokyo Institute of Technology that will bring together the experts to share the information and direction of ITS standardization.
What is ITS?
ITS or Intelligent Transport Systems are the transport systems that acquires digital technology to enhance road safety, comfortable, and environment friendly. For example, the RF-ID is applied to the Easy-Pass, the GPS and mobile app are applied to the on-demand taxi service. The ITS require the computing, data storage and communication that need the industrial standard so that all car makers and infrastructure can communicate and collaborate in the services.
What is ITS standard (ISO/TC204)?
TC 204, the technical committee for ITS standardization within the ISO, was set up in 1992 and went into operation the following year. In general, subcommittees (SC) are set up under technical committees (TC) and working groups (WG) under subcommittees, working groups are set under the direct jurisdiction within TC 204. Some working groups have been suspended or merged during the years since the inception of TC 204, and there are currently 12 active working groups.
ITS database technology (WG 3)
WG 3 has been involved in standardizing exchange formats between geographic data providers, as well as compact storage formats allowing high-speed searching, and has also worked on developing functional requirement specifications, data models and data elements for geographic data. WG 3 has limited its scope to static geographic data, but seeks to take part in the standardization of dynamic data.
Fee and toll collection (WG 5)
WG 5 is working on standardizing Electronic Fee Collection (EFC), which includes ETC (Electronic Toll Collection) as well as all other charging and settlement such as tolls for roads, fees for parking lots or ferries. This WG is currently focusing on ETC systems. The communication between vehicle and roadside equipment is based on Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) and additionally based on GNSS/CN which uses global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) and cellular networks (CN).
General Fleet Management and Commercial/ Freight (WG 7)
The current WG 7 is a merger of WG 6 (General Fleet Management) and the previous WG 7 (Commercial/Freight) agreed upon at the Montreal meeting in November 1999. Standardization topics include the transport of hazardous goods and international multi-modal transport. Concrete work items being readied for standardization include the operational management of commercial vehicles, data dictionary and message sets for international multi-modal transport and the monitoring of vehicle logistics.
Public transport/emergency (WG8)
WG 8 is responsible for the standardization of public transport. Public transport includes buses, trains, trams and emergency vehicles. CEN has been leading standardization of the Interoperable fare management system (IFMS).
Traveler Information Systems (WG10)
Traveler information systems, subject to standardization by WG 10, constitute a core part of ITS. This working group has work items designed to study data dictionaries and message sets to provide information to drivers through various communication media, such as FM broadcasting, DSRC, and digital broadcasting. Recently, the Transport Protocol Experts Group (TPEG) has stepped up its UML modeling activities.
Vehicle/roadway warning and control systems (WG14)
Vehicle control technology relating to driving is directly linked to the driver's operation of the vehicle, and forms a central part of ITS. The purpose of this field is to reduce driver workload, enhance convenience, and raise awareness of dangers, as well as to avoid accidents and/or mitigate damage through the use of advanced technologies. Examples of systems already on the market include Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) systems and Forward Vehicle Collision Mitigation Systems (FVCMS). WG 14 is broad in scope as it covers standalone/cooperative warnings and controls systems, including vehicle control, sensing of the surrounding environment, communications, and user interfaces.
Wide area communications/protocols and interfaces (WG 16)
WG 16 is involved in standardizing the communication systems used in ITS. This working group holds discussion on the CALM systems used in ITS and the DSRC inherited from the now disbanded WG 15 (Dedicated Short Range Communications), as well as on probe data systems.
This workgroup is in charge of developing standards targeting ITS services using nomadic devices such as smart phones and portable navigation devices which are rapidly disseminating worldwide. It covers the standardization of vehicle interface, guidance protocols for safety assistance systems, and services that provide information to travelers.
Cooperative ITS (WG 18)
Cooperative ITS integrates vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V), vehicleto-infrastructure (V2I) and infra-structure-to-infrastructure (I2I) communications, and simultaneously supports extensive ITS services via the communications system.
Architecture (WG 1)
Automatic Vehicle and Equipment Identification (WG 4)
Integrated Transport Information, Management and Control (WG 9)
