OPEN SPECIFICATIONS FOR TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEMS

This paper discusses the need for open specifications for urban traffic control and information systems in order to take advantage of developments in the worldwide market for electronic equipment and to ensure that modifications and enlargements to such systems can be purchased at competitive prices. It describes the progress being made in London towards the development of such specifications and, in particular, the preliminary work on a new non-proprietary data transmission system known as TCAM. The new system is based on the OSI seven layer model. It is modular and the interfaces and protocols between each module are specified. Thus, system components can be obtained from different sources and the system can be upgraded as new technology becomes available. The system is extremely flexible and may be configured to suit local requirements.
