ERTICO-ITS demonstrates new European V2V and V2I technology

ERTICO-ITS Europe – together with its partners, the Municipality of Helmond, Logica, Peek Traffic (Imtech) and TNO – have demonstrated an initial European test of an innovative new traffic technology for high-tech communication between vehicles and between vehicles and existing technical traffic systems. The test will try out innovative new applications and services developed as part of the projects called ‘Co-operative Vehicle Infrastructure Systems’ (CVIS) and ‘Co-operative Systems for Road Safety’ (SAFESPOT). These two pan-European research initiatives sponsored by the European Union are being coordinated by ERICTO-ITS and Centro Ricerche FIAT of Italy.

The objective of CVIS is to design, develop and test a platform that allows Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) communications. This allows vehicles to communicate with each other and with nearby roadside systems, such as existing traffic technology installed alongside, below or above the road surface.

The CVIS platform provides interfaces for mobile communication over short and long distances, innovative localization capabilities and support for software management. The SAFESPOT project has developed interfaces for wireless connection compliant to those defined by the Car to Car Communication Consortium, as well as precise relative position to enable critical safety-related applications. It is hoped that this can help avoid road traffic accidents by identifying potentially dangerous situations early on and alerting drivers to them.

The deployment of such technologies will provide new systems and services for drivers, road operators as well as fleet managers. Vehicles and infrastructure will be able to produce and share real-time traffic and environment information, which – when processed and delivered to drivers – will lead to fewer traffic accidents, lower congestion delays and costs, and reduced fuel consumption and pollutant emissions.
