Intelligent Transport Systems group prioritises in-vehicle speed limit information and harmonised user interfaces

The European Commission’s working group on Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (the C-ITS platform) has published its Phase II Final Report, which includes a number of recommendations for prioritising road safety. C-ITS encompasses sharing of data from transport infrastructure to vehicles, and from vehicle to vehicle.  The technology can support drivers but will also develop as a complement to automated and autonomous vehicles. The platform’s road safety working group, of which ETSC was a participant, set out a list of priority C-ITS services with higher […]

Briefing: Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS)

Digital technologies have developed rapidly over the past decades and they are increasingly being introduced in transport. While Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) focus on digital technologies providing intelligence placed at the roadside or in vehicles, C-ITS focuses on the communication between those systems – whether it is a vehicle communicating with another vehicle, with the infrastructure, or with other C-ITS systems. Vehicles and infrastructure equipped with C-ITS can, for example, communicate a warning to each other, after which the drivers are informed about the […]
