The EEA Joint Committee decided to implement Directive 2010/40/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council, which establishes a framework for supporting the coordinated and coherent deployment of ITS within the European Economic Area (EEA). This applies particularly to cross-border actions where general conditions are laid out for developing the necessary standards. The Directive identifies six priority areas in the development and use of specifications and standards, including the provision of EU-wide real time traffic information services. It also mentions that the respective states should ensure that any personal data used by ITS is protected against misuse.
ITS are believed to improve transport significantly through better environmental performance, increased efficiency, safety and security, and improved passenger and freight mobility.
