About the Smart Trek ITS Backbone:
The Smart Trek MDI ITS Backbone is a set of paradigms and protocols designed to tie ITS applications together. Applications in this context are a set of components that:
The ITS Backbone Software Library implements the concepts from these two papers. In particular, it provides three types of components:
In addition, programmers can use the software to create new components, add new streams, modify existing streams, or perform special-purpose tasks with the data in a stream.
Using the SDD software described here, you can connect to a number of SDD streams available on the ITS backbone. The streams are listed on our SDD streams page.
The Data Flow Status Page summarizes the operation of some important backbone components. Click on one of the data flow links there to see a picture of how the applications are connected.
The SDD code is a joint venture between the ITS Research Program at the University of Washington and Battelle.
