The pathway to fully connected services

Intelligent transport systems (ITS) have evolved over the last 20 years from simple traffic signals, traffic detectors and signs operated by human operators into interconnected systems connecting and interfacing more directly to individual users with increasing levels of automated control through the emergence of connected and automated vehicle technologies. These more recent developments are intended to enable data sharing between systems to deliver a wide range of transportation-related socioeconomic benefits; within Europe these are generally termed ‘cooperative ITS’ (C-ITS) services and embrace infrastructure-to-vehicle (I2V), vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication. This paper will provide an overview of global activities.

The audience will learn:

  • Global developments on cooperative, connected and automated mobility
  • Key supporting pillars enabling current developments
  • Roles and responsibilities of key stakeholders in the process
  • The role of big data as an enabler
  • uUse cases under development and pilots
