The fourth edition of the Nordic ITS Terminology is recently published by three Nordic transport administrations, namely the Finnish Transport Agency (Liikennevirasto), the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (Statens vegvesen) and the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket). The Danish Road Directorate (Vejdirektoratet) and the Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration (Vegagerðin) have supported the work by providing national translations.
This fourth version has been extended to some 1070 terms and definitions. Especially the sections on mobility, privacy and data security, vehicles and automated driving have been extended.
This Terminology will be used as basis for improved mutual understanding and harmonisation within the field of ITS in the Nordic countries and elsewhere and that it will be used e.g. in international ITS standardisation within CEN and ISO as well.
The terms and definitions are mainly from the road sector but many definitions are generic and multimodal. The basic philosophy behind this Terminology has been to provide definitions for ITS functions or services rather than products or technologies. However, in an effort to make the Terminology more understandable and complete many generic concepts as well as some technology related terms have been included.
Chapter 8 is a list explaining widely used ITS-related acronyms and abbreviations without definitions of the concepts behind.
