The Action is part of the C-Roads platform (Action: 2016-PT-TM-0259-S) which is a platform of Member States working on the deployment of C-ITS services. Cross-border tests will also be conducted with other C-Roads Member States.
The overall objective of the Action is to ensure the continuity of secured "Day-1” and “Day-1,5” C-ITS services over the Portuguese TEN-T network and on the urban nodes of Lisbon and Porto. These services will be harmonised with those delivered by other Members of the C-Roads platform ensuring their interoperability.
To that aim, Portugal will deploy 5 pilots that will test the functioning of the Portuguese Single Action Point as well as the provision of “Day-1” and “Day-1,5” C-ITS services using hybrid communication technologies. The pilots will cover more than 1000 km of the Portuguese TEN-T network and the urban nodes of Lisbon and Porto. The Action will also cover the necessary studies to define the C-ITS security framework, specifications and pilots characteristics..
