CEN DATEX II Revises Parking Publication Based on APDS Standard
June 10, 2022
Alexandria, Virginia - The Alliance for Parking Data Standards is thrilled to announce that the CEN Technical Committee has revised its DATEX II Parking Publication based on the APDS data model. DATEX II is a multi-part Standard, maintained by CEN Technical Committee 278, Road Transport and Traffic Telematics.
The CEN Technical Committee 278 addresses Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and is responsible for the standardization of the DATEX II data model. CEN/TC278, through National Standards Bodies’ consultation and balloting, adopts new DATEX II standards or modifies existing standards.
This week, CEN approved the update to the Parking Publication, with a positive vote from AFNOR (Association française de normalization (NF). AFNOR is an association governed by the law of 1901, consisting of nearly 2500 member companies. Its aim is to lead and coordinate the standards development process and to promote the application of those standards. This announcement highlights once again the position of APDS as the global parking data standard.
Founded by the British Parking Association, the European Parking Association, and the International Parking & Mobility Institute, the Alliance for Parking Data Standards (APDS) is an independent organization supported by the APDS Board of Directors, our community of Affiliates and Supporters, and the generous support of our Sponsors.
Through APDS, the parking, transport, and mobility sectors are managing consensus-built, international parking and curbside management data specifications. These data specifications define a common language based on a set of data concepts and definitions that local authorities, public and private property owners, operators, and service providers can follow to facilitate communication between themselves and with other industries. The specifications facilitate seamless integration, compatibility, and communication between parking entities, mobility operators, the automotive industry, IT developers, ITS operators, services, map, and app providers, as well as other stakeholders.
