Future mobility: Within a specified area of town, users will be able to use their smartphone to order a car sharing car or robot taxi. The vehicle will then make its way autonomously to the user and the onward journey can commence. (Source: Daimler AG)
Following an invitation of the European Commission, industry representatives and public authorities agreed on a further developed shared vision on the interoperable deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) towards cooperative, connected and automated mobility (CCAM) in the European Union.
The report follows on from the C-ITS Platform Phase I report from January 2016 and addresses the common technical and legal framework necessary for the deployment of C-ITS and also takes the needs and possibilities of higher levels of automation into consideration.
This is another important step towards CCAM as C-ITS enable vehicles to communicate with each other and with the infrastructure. This can notably improve road safety and reduce congestion. It also ensures that road transport can reap all the benefits of digitisation and contribute to the Commission’s aim of creating a Digital Single Market.
The outcomes of the second phase of the C-ITS platform also form an essential input for the ongoing preparation of specifications for the provision of cooperative intelligent transport systems.
