Standardization actvities in the domain of Urban ITS were started in 2015 with support from the European Commission. A prestudy was carried by CEN/TC 278 to identify standardzation needs in support of deployment of Intelligent Transport Systems in Urban areas. The results were used as input to the EC Standardization Request M546, which was adopted in February 2016. In order to support these developments and to carry out the tasks resulting from the Standardzation Request CEN/TC 278 decided to create a new Working Group, WG 17, in May 2016.
A prestudy was carried out by CEN/TC 278 to identify gaps and overlaps in ITS standards that may be needed by Urban Administrations to assist them to implement Urban-ITS. As part of the work 95 use cases for ITS deployment in the Traffic Management, Multimodal Information Systems and Urban Logistics domains were examened. In addition more than140 projects/reports studied for relevance and content. These were used to create 103 interim recommendations for standards related activities that could usefully help to expedite the speedy deployment of Urban ITS. The report of the the prestudy can be downloaded here:

European Standardization in support of Urban Intelligent Transportation and Mobility
As cities and urban environments expand, new technologies create opportunities to provide integrated mobility. Journeys can become multimodal, pollution can be better managed, and the comfort, speed and safety of urban journeys improved. New transport systems, from protected cycleways to ride hailing taxi and bus services, and, in the near future, automated vehicles will provide significant potential for society as a whole. But this cannot be left to chance and innovation alone. Standards have an important role to play in enabling …
The European Commission has made funding available to carry out part of the work requested for in EC Standardization Request M546.
