Refinement and Evaluation of the ARKTRANS Framework Through Use in Travel Information Services

ARKTRANS is the national framework architecture for multimodal intelligent transportation systems (ITS) in Norway. This paper describes an action research approach where ARKTRANS is improved through practical use in a project addressing multimodal travel information services. The usability of ARKTRANS with respect to person transport, travel information service and multimodality is assessed. An overview of the content of ARKTRANS that supports the establishment of new and improved travel information services is given: The roles played by the stakeholders involved; the functionality needed by these roles; process descriptions showing interactions between the roles; information exchanged via open services; and the technical implementation of these services.
