TRIP Research Theme Analysis Report – Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS)
This Research Theme Analysis Report provides a review of research projects under the new Transport Research & Innovation Portal (TRIP) – continuation project for the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG-MOVE). It covers the Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) research theme.
Cooperative ITS (C-ITS) is a subset of ITS that has been 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: communication technologies; data protection and security; freight transport and logistics; human-machine interaction; information systems/platform; motorway applications; public transport; safety, efficiency and emissions; sensors; urban applications.
