C-ITS Cooperation between C2C-CC and C-Roads Platform

20.06.17

The CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium and the C-Roads Platform have just signed a Memorandum of Understanding for enabling a close cooperation between the automotive industry, road authorities, and road operators for preparing the deployment of initial cooperative ITS services across Europe by 2019. Short-range wireless communication from VehicletoVehicle (V2V) and VehicletoInfrastructure (V2I) – based on the ITS-G5 standard (IEEE 802.11p) – represents together with hybrid communication technologies an essential cornerstone towards safe connected automated driving. Both partners strongly support the recommendation developed by the European Commission’s C-ITS Deployment Platform to utilise short range communication in the 5.9 GHz frequency band. In accordance with the European C-ITS strategy (COM (2016) 766) adopted in November 2016, the hybrid communication approach builds on combining short-range ITS-G5 and wide area cellular and broadcast communication under a complementary principle.
