ARKTRANS The multimodal ITS framework architecture Version 6

Abstract

ARKTRANS is the Norwegian ITS framework architecture. ARKTRANS is multimodal. This means that the specifications are common to all transport modes (road, sea, rail and air). The specifications also are harmonised across freight and person transport. By providing such coordinated and harmonised specifications and a holistic approach, ARKTRANS provides a generic and simplified view upon the transport sector that will contribute to new and improved ITS solutions. The transport sector is specified at different abstraction levels and by means of different viewpoints:• A Reference Model devides the the transport sector into domains with defined responsibilities • For each domain, the generic roles of the associated stakeholders and related objects are defined• A functional view specifies and structures the functionality needed within each domain• A process view describing how the functionality in the domains interact in processes• An information view defines the information that is exchanged• A communication view defines the technical implementations of the information exchangeARKTRANS is the result of a comprehensive study of all transport modes. The first version of ARKTRANS was established in a research project co-fund by the Research Council of Norway. The pursuance of the work is ensured by ITS Norway, based on fundings from the Norwegian Ministry of Transport and Communications. See www.arktrans.no for more information.
