Cooperative-ITS Overview

Governments around the world are concerned about the societal costs of road transport:

Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) use both vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications to enable cooperation between vehicles and road infrastructure to achieve improvements in the areas of safety, mobility, and the environment. The goal of Cooperative-ITS is to create wireless communications links between smart vehicles and between these vehicles and smart roads, in order to allow them to ?talk? to each other and so avoid accidents, reduce congestion and be more efficient.

  • Curve Speed Warning
  • Security Certificate Updates
  • Real Time Kinematics
  • Traveller Information Messages
  • Red Light Violation Warnings
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Intersection Collision Warning
  • Emergency Electronic Brake Light
  • Do Not Pass Warning
  • Intersection Movement Assist

Cooperative-ITS is an emerging market that will make road transportation safer, smarter, and greener. The US Department of Transport (DOT) estimates that V2V communications can address 79% of all accidents, while V2I communications can address 26% of all accidents. Combined, they can address 81% of all accidents.

Both USA and Europe have already released valuable radio spectrum at 5.9 GHz that is dedicated for Cooperative-ITS. The ITS JPO programme in USA is focussed on collecting the data necessary for a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) rule-making by mid-2013. The European Commission has mandated that European Standards Organisations must develop standards by mid-2012, as part of the Commission?s ITS Action Plan and its ITS Directive. Major trials of Cooperative-ITS are underway around the world. The foundation standards for Cooperative-ITS are the same in both the USA and Europe and have already been published.
