National Access Point for Traffic Data –

What Does That Mean?

The EU promote the development of intelligent traffic systems (ITS) through a separate action plan and an ITS directive. It lays down that every member country is to have a national access point for traffic data. In Germany, this role is taken up by the MDM for the area road traffic. We meet all criteria: neutral position, high technical expertise, clearly defined standards. With regards to data and mobility, all strands are coming together with us.

Our background: We are part of the Federal Government’s innovation programme and are funded by the Federal Ministry of Traffic and Digital Infrastructure. The project control lies with the Federal Highway Research Institute [Bundesanstalt für Straßenwesen (BASt)].
