The intent of the Collaboration is to provide a globally recognized forum for the coordination of an internationally accepted, globally harmonized set of
Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) communication standards of the highest quality in the most expeditious manner possible to enable the rapid deployment of fully interoperable ITS communication-related products and services in the global marketplace.
The Collaboration meetings, which are organized back-to-back with other ITS events, are opportunities to also exchange information and keep experts updated on ITS standardization. The representatives of involved SDOs are invited to submit to the Collaboration meetings status reports on ITS standardization ongoing in their respective organizations.
Based on information received by various stakeholders, CITS maintains and updates the Global ITS Communication Standards Database, which is freely open to support public and private entities.
