Following an invitation of the Commission in the second half of January, industry representatives and public authorities have agreed on a shared vision for the coordinated deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) in Europe. This is an important step towards connected cars as C-ITS enable vehicles to communicate with each other and with the infrastructure. This can notably improve road safety and reduce congestion.
The Commission adopted a report to this agreement in which also ensure that through C-ITS road transport can reap all the benefits from digitization. C-ITS will also contribute to President Juncker’s plan of creating a Digital Single Market.
EU Commissioner for transport Violeta Bulc said: “Digitisation of transport is a priority of my mandate as it has the potential to create new growth and smarter mobility. I want to see connected cars on European roads by 2019 and today’s report is an important milestone towards that objective. It is nevertheless only a first step; more deliverables will come throughout 2016.”
The report concludes that C-ITS could yield up to 3 Euros in societal benefits for every Euro invested and gives concrete recommendations to address issues such as digital security and data privacy.
