The aim of the Study is to contribute to the deployment of C-ITS in Europe by enhancing interoperability for autonomous vehicles as well as to boost the role of C-ITS as catalyst for the implementation of autonomous driving. Pilots will be implemented in 3 major Core Urban nodes (Paris, Madrid, Lisbon) located along the Core network Atlantic Corridor in 3 different Member States. The Action consists of Analysis and design, Pilots deployment and assessment, Dissemination and communication as well as Project Management and Coordination. The three pilots will test and evaluate C-ITS services for autonomous vehicles under the applicable traffic regulation, study its extension to other European countries and contribute to the C-Roads and C-ITS platform as well as to other European standards organizations.

What do we mean by C-ITS?
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. For example, information about a traffic jam ahead can be displayed to the drivers inside the car.
