Intelligent Transportation Systems / Public Safety Information Sharing Project

The Intelligent Transportation Systems / Public Safety (ITS/PS) Information Sharing Project, a collaborative effort between the Department of Transportation and the Bureau of Justice Assistance, was designed to explore and develop information exchange between Transportation’s Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and Public Safety systems. The project was initiated in the fall of 2005 with the goal of sharing real-time, accurate information between the two systems regarding traffic incidents and other beneficial information. The domains utilize different Extensible Markup Language (XML) standards to facilitate the exchange of data – Justice utilizes the Global Justice XML Data Model (GJXDM) and Transportation uses the IEEE 1512.2 standard. The project resulted in creating 12 standardized exchanges utilizing both GJXDM and IEEE 1512 with data transformations in between. Other deliverables included the “GJXDM/IEEE 1512 Compatibility Analysis Report”, laboratory testing, a pilot implementation, and outreach activities.
