Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) allow vehicles to communicate with other vehicles, with traffic signals and roadside infrastructure as well as with other road users.
With alerts generated from the increased information available, these systems have a strong potential to improve road safety and the efficiency of the road transport.
The Action aimed to streamline C-ITS implementation in 4 Member States linking the different national initiatives towards a harmonised strategic rollout and common specification. C-ITS services were installed in approximately 968 km along the Netherlands, Belgium, UK and France, for operation and evaluation of C-ITS services. C-ITS communication was performed through cellular networks and/or ITS G5 (short range).
InterCor focused on the deployment of “Day-1” services as recommended by EU “C-ITS platform”, such as “Road works warning”, “Green Light Optimised Speed Advisory”, “In vehicle signage” and “Probe vehicle data”.
The Action was part of C-Roads, which is a platform of Member States working on the deployment of harmonised and interoperable C-ITS services. Cross-border tests were conducted with other C-Roads Member States.
