OCIT - What is it, what are the objectives?
OCIT stands for "Open Communication Interfaces for Road Traffic Control Systems".
The idea of OCIT is to provide communication interfaces for vendor-mixed systems.
OCIT is the interface between devices, components and systems. Standardized are the communication protocols, functions and data that runs on the OCIT interface. "Inside" properties that are not related to the communication interface, such as construction, applications, databases, user interfaces, etc. will not be processed by OCIT.
Open interfaces with space for competition are the prerequisite for innovation and efficiency of traffic engineering.
