UTMC is an open standards initiative for traffic managers.
We help simplify integration in an innovative, competitive market.
How to achieve an effective competitive marketplace, and avoid supplier "lock in"
How to sustain technical innovation
How to ensure that different authorities align their demands on systems suppliers where practical
How to ensure systems can exchange data quickly, simply and cheaply.
To make use of mainstream technology as far as practical: notably internet protocols
To set standards where useful – but only where useful: we focus on interfaces, and leave functional innovation to the creativity of suppliers
To be maintained by consensus: we want to foster practical systems suited to both suppliers and users, not to create a technical dictatorship
To be open and readily available: UTMC specifications are free to access and free of charge
