Implementation aspects concerning planning and legislation

Objective

The main objective is to identify and describe actions and coordinations needed to assure an effective development and Europe-wide introduction and functioning of RTI systems. It is thus directly related to the DRIVE objective to promote the development of cost-effective implementation strategies for the application of RTI systems both to road vehicles and to the roadside infrastructure.
The main objective of the research was to identify and describe actions and coordinations needed to assure the effective development and Europe wide introduction and functioning of road transport informatics (RTI) systems.

The following tasks have been carried out:
the organisation of international projects has been described as a background to the identification of areas and problems for standardisation;
a preliminary listing and description of legal areas and problems possibly affected by RTI systems have been made as a basis for a questionnaire on national and international problems with regard to laws and regulations;
areas for which standardisation could be considered have been identified and a methodological approach to analyse the requirements for standardisation has been proposed.
The identification of actions and coordinations are based on problems and difficulties expected in both short term and long term scenarios defined by a number of RTI systems. The description of these systems is being discussed with the concerned 'technical' DRIVE projects and checked with other related projects. National legal aspects have been surveyed by means of a questionnaire. Coordination is being made with other projects dealing with implementation aspects.
