IEEE Incident Management
Transportation and Public Safety".
Intelligent Transportation system:
With the increase of travel throughout the United States and
beyond, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are vital
to ensuring safety, protecting environment and relieving traffic
congestion. To guarantee the smooth operation of ITS, standardization
of a common method for ITS components to communicate with
one another is key.
Incident management represents a major element of the ITS
infrastructure. Working in cooperation with the United States
Department of Transportation (USDOT), IEEE is developing a
family of standards known as 1512®.
IEEE 1512® Standards
The IEEE 1512® Family of standards are incident
management and traffic incident related message sets. They
provide incident management message sets common to traffic
management, public safety, and hazardous materials incident
response activities. Traffic incident management consists
of managing available resources of various disciplines to
mitigate an incident in an efficient and appropriate manner.
Therefore a standard message sets will reduce the duplication
of messages among various organizations and will help providers
or services to interact more effectively and efficiently.
The IEEE 1512® family of standards include:
- IEEE 1512® - 2000 (Common Incident Management Message
Sets for Use by Emergency Management Centers)
- IEEE 1512.1® - 2003 (Traffic Management)
- IEEE 1512.2® - 2004 (Public Safety)
- IEEE 1512.3® - 2002 (Hazardous Materials)
- IEEE P1512.4 - (Entities External to Centers)
