Integration of European Public Authorities Safety Attributes In Commercial Digital Maps Databases

Leading map providers integrate information from a wide variety of sources to produce their digital databases which can support a variety of in-vehicle Advanced Driver Assistance functions. By including customer feedback, adopting high end data collection and processing technologies, and conducting traditional field survey, these seamless pan European map databases are kept up to date. A new initiative launched early 2008 will address a so far missing link in this map maintenance process. The EC-funded FP7 project “ROSATTE” aims to develop the enabling infrastructure and supporting tools that will ensure European access to road safety attributes (with a distinct focus on speed limits and traffic signs) maintained by Road Authorities, including incremental updates. This particular paper addresses a preliminary view on technical and organizational aspects related to the aggregation and integration of supplied safety attributes in existing maps (“WP4”). Input data will reflect (incremental) updates of safety attributes according to an appropriate exchange format which will be available from application to application using web services and open protocols. Aspects to be considered in the integration phase are the location reference of the attributes, quality aspects, etc. Software components will be developed for testing, validation, and qualification. Several candidate test sites in Europe have been identified for testing and validating the complete data provision chain, foreseen for 2009.
