This convenient CD-ROM volume serves as the ITS field's first unifying source for exhaustive coverage of existing and developing standards that support ITS services and their interoperability. It features up-to-the-minute listings for standards developing organizations (SDOs) at both national and international levels, and also provides extensive referencing to other generic standards that can be of use to ITS service provision. You find updates on the latest best practices worldwide, helping you prevent oversights that could prove costly.

This total one-stop resource provides a state-of-the-art review of intelligent transport systems, services, and supporting technologies, and updates you on the latest ITS standards governing communications, technical support, information technology, and identification technology. You find details on standards covering everything from traveler information and traffic management, to weather monitoring and emergency response. The CD-ROM also summarizes standards for national and regional architecture in the U.S., European Union, Japan, and other nations. You find strategies for effectively integrating standards in your ITS planning, development, deployment and operations. Further, the disc includes links to free downloads of standards (where legitimately available) and links to sites where you can purchase standards.
