The ITS Architecture for Canada, developed by Transport Canada, is a common framework for planning, defining, and integrating intelligent transportation systems. The Architecture describes interaction among physical components of the transportation systems including travelers, vehicles, roadside devices, and control centers. It also describes the information and communications system requirements, how data should be shared and used, and the standards required to facilitate information sharing. It was developed to support ITS implementations in urban, interurban and rural environments across the country. The ITS Architecture for Canada is also the foundation for ongoing ITS standards work.
