To achieve the benefits that intelligent transportation systems (ITS) have to offer, various ITS components must be integrated together. Traditionally, this has been achieved through expensive integration projects that interface disparate systems. However, for the last several years, a variety of efforts have occurred to standardize these interfaces, thereby decreasing the problems and costs of system integration. Perhaps the most urgent need is to standardize the interface between various ITS management systems. This topic is the subject area of the Center-to-Center (C2C) Working Group (WG) of the National Transportation Communications for ITS Protocol (NTCIP) effort. This feature describes how the efforts of the C2C WG relate to real-world systems. The group has developed a pair of protocols that meet the requirements for intersystem communications. Common Object Request Broker Architecture (CORBA) protocols use object-oriented technologies to provide advanced data-exchange services. Data Exchange using Abstract Syntax Notation (DATEX-ASN) is a message-based protocol and is directly compatible with the messages being developed by the various message set efforts. These protocols complement each other and together provide a convenient means for any type of system to join a data-exchange network.
