Intelligent transport systems - DATEX II data exchange specifications for traffic management and information - Part 4: VMS publication

This European Standard (EN 16157 series) specifies and defines component facets supporting the exchange and shared use of data and information in the field of traffic and travel.
The component facets include the framework and context for exchanges, the modelling approach, data content, data structure and relationships.
This European Standard is applicable to:
-   Traffic and travel information which is of relevance to road networks (non-urban and urban),
-   Public transport information that is of direct relevance to the use of a road network (e.g. road link via train or ferry service),
-   Traffic and travel information in the case of Cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS).
This European Standard establishes specifications for data exchange between any two instances of the following actors:
-   Traffic Information Centres (TICs),
-   Traffic Control Centres (TCCs),
-   Service Providers (SPs),
Use of this European Standard may be applicable for use by other actors.
This European Standard series covers, at least, the following types of informational content:
-   Road traffic event information – planned and unplanned occurrences both on the road network and in the surrounding environment,
-   Operator initiated actions,
-   Road traffic measurement data, status data, and travel time data,
-   Travel information relevant to road users, including weather and environmental information,
-   Road traffic management information and instructions relating to use of the road network.
This part of the CEN/TS 16157 series specifies the informational structures, relationships, roles, attributes and associated data types required for publishing variable message sign information within the Datex II framework. This is specified in two publications, a DATEX II VMS Table Publication sub-model and a VMS Publication sub-model, which are part of the DATEX II platform independent model, but this part excludes those elements that relate to:
-   location information which are specified in EN 16157-2,
-   common information elements, which are specified in EN 16157-7,
-   situation information which are specified in EN 16157-3.
The VMS Table Publication supports the occasional exchange of tables containing generally static reference information about deployed VMS which enable subsequent efficient references to be made to pre-defined static information relating to those VMS. The VMS Publication supports the exchange of the graphic and textual content of one or several VMS plus any status information on device configuration that aid the comprehension of the informational content. This content is potentially subject to rapid change.
These publications are not intended to support the control or configuration of VMS equipment. Each is part of the DATEX II platform independent model.

European foreword

This document (EN 16157-4:2021) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 278 “Intelligent

transport systems”, the secretariat of which is held by NEN.

This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an

identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by September 2021, and conflicting national standards shall

be withdrawn at the latest by September 2021.
This document supersedes CEN/TS 16157-4:2014.
The major differences introduced in the new edition of this document are:

— renaming of some classes (e.g. currently renamed Vms, VmsController, VmsControllerStatus,

VmsStatus) to improve the understanding and the usage of the modelled information;

— merging of VMS characteristics and VMS configuration in a same model to address static and dynamic

configuration as well as VmsMessage package restructured enhancing the model flexibility for

inclusion of dynamic configured VMS, e.g. “Full-Matrix” VMS;

— Compliance to ISO 14823:2017 - Intelligent transport systems – Graphic data dictionary, for

description of Pictogram graphical information;
— correction of several bugs.

This document - EN 16157-4 - is the fourth part of a multi-part standard under the general title Intelligent

transport systems - DATEX II data exchange specifications for traffic management and information. A list of

all parts in the CEN 16157 series can be found on the CEN website.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. CEN shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

According to the CEN-CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organisations of the

following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia,

Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland,

Introduction

This document defines a common set of data exchange specifications to support the vision of a seamless

interoperable exchange of traffic and travel information across boundaries, including national, urban,

interurban, road administrations, infrastructure providers and service providers. Standardization in this

context is a vital constituent to ensure interoperability, reduction of risk, reduction of the cost base,

promotion of open marketplaces and many social, economic and community benefits to be gained from

more informed travellers, network managers and transport operators.

Delivering European Transport Policy in line with the White Paper issued by the European Commission

requires co-ordination of traffic management and development of seamless pan European services. With

the aim to support sustainable mobility in Europe, the European Commission has been supporting the

development of information exchange mainly between the actors of the road traffic management domain

for a number of years. In the road sector, DATEX II has been long in fruition, with the European

Commission being fundamental to its development through an initial contract and subsequent co-funding

through the Euro-Regional projects. With the standardization of DATEX II, there is a real basis for

common exchange between the actors of the traffic and travel information sector.

This document includes the framework and context for exchanges, the modelling approach, data content,

data structure and relationships. This European Standard supports a methodology that is extensible.

This document specifies the informational structures, relationships, roles, attributes and associated data

types required for publishing variable message sign information within the DATEX II framework. It

specifies the structures and definitions of information that can be exchanged to convey details of the

messages displayed on variable message signs, the current configuration, characteristics and status of the

variable message signs that are currently deployed on the road network.

This is specified in two publications, a DATEX II VMS Table Publication sub-model and a VMS Publication

sub-model, which are part of the DATEX II platform independent model, but this document excludes those

elements that relate to:
— location information which are specified in EN 16157-2
— common information elements, which are specified in EN 16157-7
— situation information which are specified in EN 16157-3.

The VMS Table Publication supports the occasional exchange of tables containing generally static

reference information about deployed VMS which enable subsequent efficient references to be made to

pre-defined static information relating to those VMS.

The VMS Publication supports the exchange of the graphic and textual content of one or several VMS plus

any status information on device configuration that aid the comprehension of the informational content.

This content is potentially subject to rapid change.

These publications are not intended to support the control or configuration of VMS equipment. Each is

part of the DATEX II platform independent model.

1 Scope

This document is the fourth part of the DATEX II European Standard which deals with the publication

sub-models within the DATEX II model that support the exchange of variable message sign information.

These publications are intended to support the exchange of status and informational content concerning

VMS from the organization controlling the VMS to other organisations providing ITS services or onward

information exchange. It is not intended to support the control or configuration of VMS equipment.

This is specified in two sub-models, a DATEX II VMS Table Publication sub-model and a DATEX II VMS

Publication sub-model.
