Testing is an important step toward interoperable ITS systems because it provides information to potential users on the reliability, inter-operability, functionality, and performance of systems based upon the standards. The objective of ITS standards testing activities is to "prove" the standards in real transportation settings and build confidence in the standards. The U.S. DOTâ€™s program to test ITS standards is being carried out by the Battelle Memorial Institute.www.standards.its.dot.gov/learn_StdsTest.asp
The Traffic Management Data Dictionary and Message Sets for External Traffic Management Center Communications Standards work together to provide a high level of interoperability among regional and local systems/centers, providing consistent names, definitions, and concepts similar to spelling and parts of speech to the word-like Ã£data elementsÃ¤. The TMDD enables concepts from traffic management to be defined and used in the same way by different systems and centers, while also providing for the use of locally unique data elements to recognize the individuality of each system or center.www.ite.org/tmdd
