Cooperative ITS: Getting Ready to Deploy the Next Generation
This webinar is about how cooperative ITS is creating new opportunities to transport professionals to tackle mobility issues such as road safety, traffic congestion and energy efficiency. Thanks to wireless communication technologies, data exchange between components and actors of the road transport system, very often between vehicles (vehicle-to-vehicle or V2V) or between vehicles and infrastructure (vehicle-to-infrastructure or V2I), generate new sources of valuable and reliable information that can feed new generation of ITS services. Webinar participants will get insights about the maturity of cooperative ITS based on lessons learnt from testing and deployment initiatives carried out during the last 10 years. The objective is to not miss opportunities that could help to address road transport challenges and to gain knowledge on how to consider cooperative ITS in road authorities' deployment strategy.
