Traffic and Travel Information (TTI) - TTI via Transport Protocol Expert Group (TPEG) data-streams - Part 4: Road Traffic Message (RTM) application (ISO/TS 18234-4:2006)
This document establishes the method of delivering Road Traffic Messages within a TPEG service. The TPEG-RTM application is designed to allow the efficient and language independent delivery of road information directly from service provider to end-users. The information provided relates to event and some status information on the road network and on associated infrastructure affecting a road journey. For example, limited information about abnormal operation of links in the network may be included, such as ferries, lifting-bridges, etc. The term “application” is used in TPEG specifications to describe specific applications, such as in this case the Road Traffic Message application, which comprises three information containers: the Message Management Container, the Application Event Container and the TPEG-Location Container. The first two Containers are fully described herein and the TPEG-Location Container is described in CEN ISO/TS 18234-6. Each TPEG application (e.g. TPEG-RTM) is assigned a unique number that is called the application identification (AID). An AID is defined whenever a new application is developed. The AID is used within the TPEG-Service and Network Information Application (CEN ISO/TS 18234-3) to indicate how to process TPEG content and allows routing of data to an appropriate application decoder.
AID = 0001 is assigned to the TPEG-Road Traffic Message application, described in this specification.
