New section "Sample Files" published in the ECAD-WIKI

We have added a new section Sample Files to the ECAD-WIKI and migrated the sample files which have already been available in the old ECAD-WIKI. We are currently working on making more sample data available in WIKI. You can help us with this. If you have sample data of a VEC or KBL implementation that can be made publicly available, we would be happy if you would provide us with it.

KBL 2.5-SR1 & Implementation Guidlines released

We just released the first service release for KBL Version 2.5. This release just contains some bug fixes and a minor feature improvement. Please refer to the model description and the release notes, which can be found here. As this is just a service release, there will be no update / republication of the recommendation document. Additionally we published some new implementation guidelines, specifically for the KBL which can be found here.

VEC 1.2.0 released

Despite the Corona Lockdown we were very active in the last weeks. The results of this work are now becoming visible step by step. After we already launched the ECAD Wiki in a completely new look a few weeks ago, we can now proudly announce that the VEC 1.2.0 is publicly available. This is the next major step towards a consistent and complete model of the physical network of vehicles and the associated data.
