As a result of the preparation meetings, the Working Group recommends dividing the activities into three phases:
Phase 1 - COOPERATION
Develop a model which supports the cooperation between the Private and Public sectors in the provision of the eSafety attributes and their updates from the public authorities to the private mapping companies.
Regarding the definition of the requirements, the WG concludes that it would make sense to utilise the safety attributes list agreed in the EC-funded MAPS&ADAS project. In addition, the WG will do its utmost to create synergies with the other EC-funded projects such as EuroRoads and INSPIRE. In parallel, the WG will check if there are any competitive directives.
The WG will address specific constraints such as the uncertainty whether or not the attributes are available, and their varying availability among the different Public authorities.
Phase 1 should result in a recommendation for the High-Level eSafety meeting by the end of 2005.
Phase 2 - QUALITY CERTIFICATION
A separate EC-funded group/organisation should define easy-to-implement guidelines on quality that serve the eSafety objectives for these safety attributes. The private mapping companies will participate, support and make recommendations to this group to help define the generic guidelines.
The public and private sectors will evaluate how well this directive is working one year after full operation and if needed, make recommendations to the European Commission and initiate Phase 3.
The quality certification will help to achieve the following:
Phase 3 - OPTIMALISATION
At this phase, the process will be optimised based on the experience of Phase 1 & 2.
* After Phase 1, the Digital Maps WG will be acting on behalf of the eSafety ForumHigh-Level Steering Committee as a steering committee to monitor the implementation of the three phases.
