TISA delivers vital specifications to ISO
Information Services Association (TISA; www.tisa.Org), having taken over responsibility for both TMC (Traffic Message Channel) and TPEGTM (Transport Protocol Experts Group) specifications development and maintenance, with an ISO Liaison agreement, has had major tasks in both technologies to complete this year.
The TPEGTM Applications Working Group (TAWG) has delivered seven TISA Specifications, to the ISO TCISO204 WG10 Convenor, that complete the TPEG1TM Generation Standards. These add several new capabilities to TPEGTM, including the Traffic Event Compact and Parking Information applications, together with Conditional Access capability and an upgraded Location Referencing Container. The TAWG has also delivered six TISA Specifications for the completely new TPEG2 Generation, that brings a UML modeled toolkit and new applications to fruition, including the Traffic Flow and Prediction application.
This work has resulted in13 completed TISA Specifications confidentially available for TISA Members use for their ongoing development work. They will only become more widely obtainable when published as ISO TS Standards, thus giving TISA Members a very useful time advantage for their developments. This TISA membership team work activity will form the technical basis of next generation TTI data services-based upon the TPEG1/2TM technology toolkit.
