APPLYING THE OBJECT-ORIENTED METHOD FOR ITS SYSTEM ARCHITECTURE DEVELOPMENT

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), utilizing a broad range of technologies and incorporating a wide range of industrial entities, have the potential capacity to be developed and operated over the long term. In this regard, the system architecture (SA) of ITS must be flexible in allowing various kinds of information to be processed and functions incorporated. Our approach to SA development using the object-oriented method is: (1) to create two-layered models: area models comprising specific and inherent information and functions; and a holistic model which consolidates information and functions shared among several fields; (2) to use patterns for functional modeling; and (3) to provide the ability to identify the commonality of functions by a combination of information and pattern. This approach leads to development of logical architecture with compact and systematized information and functions based on 220 user services which fall into nine areas. For the covering abstract see IRRD E102946.
