Establishment of a pilot operation for C-ITS and coordination of the international adjustment
The C-Roads platform is based on an initiative from AustriaTech. It brings together authorities and road operators from all over Europe to harmonise the deployment activities of cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) across Europe.
The aim of C-Roads is to develop harmonised specifications taking the EU-C-ITS platform recommendations into account, linking all C-ITS deployments and planning intensive cross-testing. The C-Roads platform is making cross-border C-ITS services a reality today and building the foundations for connected and automated vehicles.
This work is key for making European roads safer for citizens, traffic more efficient and reducing harmful emissions from transport. This will also benefit European economy as a whole as it needs a safe, reliable and efficient transport system.
