ISO 37154:2017 applies to transportation infrastructures used for the movement of people, freight or other goods, including items transported for delivery.

ISO 37154:2017 is intended for use by city planners and other community decision makers, government officials, insurance providers, investment and financing organizations, transportation operators and service providers and manufacturers of transportation equipment. In particular, ISO 37154:2017 is intended to be used by those involved in making decisions about transportation modes to meet the objectives related to affordability, convenience, low environmental impact and reliability, while satisfying the needs of a diverse group of stakeholders, including city residents, visitors, government authorities, transportation operators.

ISO 37154:2017 addresses smart transportation by considering the factors that shape communities, such as population, demographics, locations, local culture and history.

Comments:

“Cities need to have transportation systems that meet the needs of a diverse group of users, including commuters both within and outside the city, persons with disabilities and the elderly, and those shipping freight or other goods and parcels.

This document describes how transportation is planned, designed, implemented, operated, maintained and upgraded to take into account the points of view of different stakeholders, including the residents and governing authorities of communities, as well as the needs of the environment. This document also outlines minimum conditions to be respected in the performance of transportation systems, even after they have been installed, in order to realize the objectives of a smart transportation infrastructure, i.e. economically efficient transportation systems that meet or exceed user needs while minimizing environmental impact.”
