The fast-growing field of intelligent transport systems (ITS) spans everything from freight transport and traffic management to in-vehicle services like driver alert. This practical book is the first unifying reference that provides exhaustive coverage of existing and developing standards that support ITS services and their interoperability. The book reviews best practices and provides up-to-the-minute listings for standards developing organizations (SDOs) at both national and international levels. Practitioners get up-to-the-minute details on ITS standards governing everything from on-board communications and vehicle ID, to public travel security and route guidance services. Moreover, the book presents strategies for successfully integrating standards in ITS planning, deployment, and operations.
