COoperative ITS DEployment Coordination Support
Multifaceted research initiatives and field operational tests have proven the potential of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems and Services (C-ITS) to contribute to a safer, more flexible, mobile, sustainable and comfortable future society. In first deployment activities like the Cooperative ITS Corridor, SCOOP@F and COMPASS4D pilot projects, users will precociously experience the benefits of cooperative traffic safety and efficiency services, enabled by the integration of new technology (e.g. ETSI ITS G5) into vehicles and infrastructure. As a considerable stakeholder organisation, the Amsterdam Group pursues a harmonised C-ITS system realisation providing benefits to all users. It facilitates joint work for a growing variety of stakeholders such as road operators, automotive industry, cities and regions. The Coordination and Support Action COoperative ITS DEployment Coordination Support (CODECS) supports the European Commission and the manifold stakeholders involved in C-ITS deployment in finding strategic and technical policy solutions and processes for a consolidated C-ITS roll-out.
CODECS serves as hub for transparent information and knowledge transfer on function approaches, experiences and lessons-learned by stakeholders active in the initial deployment. To ensure European-wide seamless (cross-border) interoperability and end-user experiences, CODECS develops a harmonised standards profile supporting a growing amount of C-ITS services. To address key organisational and technology related issues, CODECS will derive a strategic common road map from preferences of the involved stakeholders, giving direction for innovation, testing, standardisation and deployment beyond Day One. CODECS also supports future C-ITS common deployment by achieving a clear understanding on policies, roles and responsibilities. CODECS does convey these insights to the C-ITS deployment platform initiated by the European Commission and also to the Amsterdam Group.
