STANDARDIZATION OF COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS FOR ITS

Radio communication technologies are indispensable for implementing intelligent transportation systems (ITS), and their international standardization at an early stage will have a great significance in harmonizing the world's transportation systems. On the international level, a United Nations organization called the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) works on international allocation of radio frequencies and worldwide standardization of telecommunication. In December 1994, the Radio Communications Sector of the ITU began preparing recommendations for transport information and control systems (TICS), such as advanced vehicle control systems, advanced traffic management systems, advanced traveler information systems, advanced public transportation systems, and advanced fleet management systems. On the national level, a standard-creation system has been established in which the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications defines, in cooperation with international standards organizations, such as the ITU, regulatory standards and nongovernmental standards for the Association of Radio Industries and Business regarding radio communication systems.
