Different Types of ITS Architectures and Their Uses

This paper looks at how one should choose the best type of Architecture to create for an ITS deployment. There are three main Architecture types, comprising Framework, Defined and Specific. They all contain the User Needs and the functionality supporting them, but they differ in what else they comprise. A Framework ITS Architecture contains guidance for the creation of the other outputs and is most suitable for (inter-)national ITS Architectures. Both the Defined and the Specific ITS Architectures contain the actual created outputs. A Defined Architecture is most suitable for regional ITS Architectures. A Specific ITS Architecture only supports one or two Services and is best used by manufacturers as the basis for their product ranges. The choice of which ITS Architecture to create depends on the starting point, plus how and where it will be used.
