Cooperative intelligent transport systems

This research theme analysis report gives an overview of research performed (mostly) in the EU collated by TRIP, providing a view across many projects that fall under the theme title. It provides an assessment of the reported results from these projects and offers perspectives from scientific and policy points of view. Intelligent transport systems (ITS) refers to the application of information and communication technologies (ICT) to the transport sector. ITS integrate telecommunications, electronics and information technologies with transport engineering to plan, design, operate, maintain and manage transport systems. It can have applications in a range of fields including infrastructure, vehicles and users, traffic and mobility management and interfaces with other modes of transport. Cooperative ITS (C-ITS) is a subset of ITS that has been defined by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN) TC278 WG16/ISO TC204 WG18 and European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) EC ITS together as: ‘A subset of the overall ITS that communicates and shares information between ITS stations to give advice or facilitate actions with the objective of improving safety, sustainability, efficiency and comfort beyond the scope of stand-alone systems.’ For the purpose of this review, the theme of C-ITS has been divided into 10 sub-themes and the assessments performed within each sub-theme as well as across the complete C-ITS theme. The 10 sub-themes considered are: 1. communication technologies; 2. data protection and security; 3. freight transport and logistics; 4. human-machine interaction; 5. information systems/platform; 6. motorway applications; 7. public transport; 8. safety, efficiency and emissions; 9. sensors; 10. urban applications.
