The Action aims to streamline C-ITS implementation in 4 member states linking the different national initiatives towards a harmonized strategic rollout and common specification. C-ITS pilot sites to communicate data through cellular and/or ITS G5 networks will be installed in approximately 968 km along the Netherlands, Belgium, UK and France, for operation and evaluation of C-ITS services.
InterCor will focus on the deployment of “Day-1” services as recommended by EC “C-ITS platform” such as Road works warning, Green Light Optimized Speed Advisory, In vehicle signage and Probe vehicle data.
The action is part of the C-Roads platform which is a platform of Member States working on the deployment of C-ITS services. Cross-border tests will also be conducted with other C-Roads Member States.
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, warnings about Road works can be displayed to the drivers inside the car.
