The European Commission adopted recently a European Strategy on Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS), a milestone initiative towards cooperative, connected and automated mobility. The Strategy will make it possible to deploy vehicles that can “talk” to each other and to the transport infrastructure as of 2019, aiming also to enhancing road safety on EU roads.  pdf5  The main components of the C-ITS Strategy are:

  • Avoid a fragmented internal market
  • Define and support common priorities
  • Use a mix of communication technologies
  • Address security and data protection issues
  • Develop the right legal framework
  • Cooperate at international level
