Consultation on Access to traffic and travel data – Universal Traffic Information: IET comments to the European Union (EU).
There is a significant amount of effort needed to consolidate and check all the data produced by the various travel providers. A lack of innovation in this area is a direct result of monopolistic information providers leading to market failure in the wider content industry and lack of choice for users. The European Commission should encourage / oblige EU member states to exploit the results of research investments already made in systems, such as RDS-TMC, TPEG and COOPERS. Infrastructure standards should be agreed to encourage adoption of common service levels across EU borders.
