LOD-RoadTran18 project concludes its first phase in which a comprehensive analysis of European legislation has been carried out regarding to the development of intelligent transport systems and their implementation in the European Union. The study is the basis of project goal to re-use dynamic traffic data between European Union countries. LOD-RoadTran18 is co-financed by the European Commission under CEF projects 1.
The aim of the LOD-RoadTran18 is to improve the interoperability and distribution of dynamic traffic data from the Czech Republic and Spain. The project aims to ensure their reusability at European level to become linked open data (LOD).
To achieve these objectives, European legislation on public sector information (PSI) and intelligent transport systems (ITS) was analysed in the first phase in order to examine their implementation at national level. A study was conducted on how public administrations currently provide traffic information. The initiative covers various aspects of traffic data and their content, as well as how to publish data at national access points). A partial objective of this section was to define how these data should be published to meet specific regulatory requirements.
An analysis of legal and technical issues related to PSI was carried out. The project partners reviewed the existing legislation at national and European level and analysed its level of implementation on public portals with open data and in particular in the national access points. At the same time, procedural issues related to the ITS Directive were analysed. In addition, partners from both countries involved analysed national legislation resulting from the two legislation.
The project is co-funded by the European Commission through the Connecting Europe Facility Telecom (CEF-Telecom) program, which supports the facilitation of international interaction between public administrations, companies and citizens and the development of Digital Infrastructure Services (DSIs).
