C-Roads Italy is part of the C-Roads Platform.
The C-Roads Platform is a joint initiative of European States for testing and implementing cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) in a harmonized and interoperable way. C-ITS services allow effective data exchange through wireless communication technologies between components and actors of the transport system to improve road safety and efficiency of transport. C-ITS pilot sites will be installed across the EU for testing and later operation of applications as recommended by the "C-ITS Platform" set up by the European Commission.
(CEF Action: 2016-IT-TM-0052-S)
The main goal of the project is to implement and test, in real traffic conditions, cooperative systems based on V2X technologies, for trucks platooning, passenger cars Highway Chauffeur and combined scenarios of trucks and passenger cars.
That implies the infrastructure upgrade and the integration of V2I C-ITS service and V2V information with vehicle control strategies.
C-ROADS ITALY planned to pilot a set of “Day1” and “Day1,5” C-ITS services as recommended by the EC C-ITS Platform. The expected impact to be demonstrated are mostly on mobility, considered in Safety, Traffic fluidity and energy efficiency.
