Metadata Registry for Intelligent Transportation SystemsIan Cornwell
Mott MacDonald Ltd.
The presentation describes both technical research and practical experience with a growing operational registry in the domain of Intelligent Transport System/Transport Information and Control Systems (ITS/TICS). The registry has now emerged from R&D trials into a one-year pilot phase to demonstrate business benefits in a wider range of business areas. The registry structure is based on UML, with a suite of import tools based on XMI. The registry process comes from ISO 14817, a registry standard based on ISO/IEC 11179. Ideas from ebXML Core Components are used to actively harmonise across multiple overlapping submissions from legacy systems.
