The wide variety of remote sensors used in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) applications (loops, probe vehicles, radar, cameras, etc.) has created a need for general methods by which data can be shared among agencies and users who own disparate computer systems. In this paper, we present a methodology that demonstrates that it is possible to create, encode, and decode a self-describing data stream using: 1) existing data description language standards; 2) parsers to enforce language compliance; 3) a simple content language that flows out of the data description language; and 4) architecture neutral encoders and decoders based on ASN.1.
