Reflections on Cooperative Urban Applications Truly Cooperative

Busy urban areas are characterized by highly dynamic and complex mobility patterns. In oversaturated traffic conditions mobility tends to shift to immobility while traffic safety and the environment suffer. New cooperative technology (vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication), developed in the European research project CVIS, enables innovative systems and services to improve the overall traffic conditions. In 2009 cooperative systems will already go beyond research and are tested and demonstrated in real-life traffic on various locations throughout Europe. This paper outlines the results from the Netherlands-Helmond test site, reflects the achievements so far and explains how cooperative technology becomes truly cooperative.
