National ITS Architecture: Context and Vision
  • Publication no: AP-R467-14
  • ISBN: 978-1-925037-83-8
  • Published: 11 November 2014

The proposed Australian National ITS Architecture is intended to allow transport agencies and ITS–related organisations describe and develop ITS solutions using a consistent terminology and content.

The development of the National ITS Architecture is a key action of the Australian Transport and Infrastructure Council’s Policy Framework for ITS in Australia.

This Context and Vision document describes the vision for the Australian National ITS Architecture, the international context in which has been developed, the methodology used in its development, and recommendations for how development should continue.

This document should be read with the report National IT Architecture: IT Business Architecture(AP-R468-14).
