Urban C-ITS Contest

The Urban C-ITS Contest aims to present and promote European cities' C-ITS deployment, highlighting the characterisation of their systems and architectures. Among other aspects, it shall take into consideration information related to the C-Roads documents released, communication plans, and stage of deployment. Furthermore, this event intends to analyse and understand the C-ITS situation point of European cities.

The starting point of the Urban C-ITS Contest will be on 2nd May (the date of the release of the “Call for Urban C-ITS Contest”). From then on, participants will have until July 17th to submit their C-ITS deployment description to the following e-mail address: joao.montenegro(at)armis.pt according to the rules established in the document named “Rules of Engagement”.

The Contest awards cities that demonstrate the efficacy and versatility of their C-ITS deployments during the high-level “urban C-ITS award ceremony”, which will take place in the city of Porto, Portugal, on October 20th, 2023.
