Why do you need an ITS architecture? European and national perspectives

ITS is becoming more complex and difficult to produce and deploy successfully. One way of alleviating this situation is to create an ITS architecture. This provides a top-level framework that contains the minimum top-level assumptions necessary. Once created, an ITS architecture can be used to produce a variety of management products to guide the future ITS deployment. An architectural approach provides benefits for the ITS stakeholders, with end users, authorities and operators as well as manufacturers and suppliers all gaining from a long term planned approach. An ITS deployment without an architecture is likely to be a "technology island" with no links, and little in common, with the other "islands". A growing number of European nations are now creating their own ITS architectures, based on the KAREN/FRAME architecture, which will assist them to provide ITS services.
