Slow or stationary vehicle(s) & traffic ahead warning

A slow or stationary vehicle can signal its presence to other vehicles. This improves traffic fluidity by encouraging other vehicles to take an alternative route

Road works warning

A service whereby the road operator can communicate with drivers through I2V communication about road works, restrictions and instructions

Weather conditions

Informing drivers about critical weather conditions ahead, especially where the danger can hardly be visually perceived

Emergency vehicle approaching

Information provided by the emergency vehicle to help the driver on how to clear the road, even when the siren and light bar may not yet be audible or visible.

Other hazardous notification

The road operator can communicate with drivers through I2V communication about road works, restrictions and instructions

In-vehicle signage

Via V2I communication, information on relevant road signs is given to the driver. Roadside units may be mounted on traffic signs and key points along roads, informing drivers of potentially dangerous road conditions ahead, speed limits and upcoming junctions

In-vehicle speed limits

Roadside units at key points along roads can broadcast information to drivers about speed limits

Signal violation / Intersection Safety

Also known as the Red Light Violation Warning (RLVW), this service's primary objective is to reduce the number and severity of collisions at signalised intersections. Drivers are warned when they are in danger of violating a red light, or when it is probable that another vehicle is going to make a red light violation.

A special use case within C-Roads will deal with ”on railway level” crossing.

Green Light Optimal Speed Advisory (glosa)

Traffic lights are connected to a roadside unit. Via this connection, information can be broadcast to nearby vehicles informing them of the traffic light phase schedule. This will enable vehicles to calculate optimal speed of approach. Time to green information may also be presented to drivers.

probe vehicle data

Also known as Floating Car Data (FCD), PVD is data generated by vehicles. Contains vehicle positional information, time stamp and motion. Driver actions e.g. steering, braking, flat tyre, windscreen wiper status, air bag status, weather and road surface conditions can also be transmitted. Probe data is used to manage traffic flows, maintain roads and to alert users in hot spots, where the danger of accidents accumulates.

Shockwave damping

Shock wave damping aims to smooth the flow of traffic, by damping traffic/shock waves. Real-time traffic data is used to feed advisory speeds to cars to smooth out speed variations.
