The partners involved in the EIP+ activity on Cooperative ITS services have met on 12.01.2015 at BASt in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany. The activity brings together road authorities’ and road operators’ experts from ten EU Member States involved in various stages towards deployment of Cooperative ITS. It continues the fruitful work of the Cooperative Systems Task Force from EasyWay phase 2 (2010-12). The overarching activity goal is to prepare a C-ITS deployment road map for road authorities and operators including the mechanism for producing C-ITS deployment guidelines.
Besides organising the work within the activity the meeting has informed about the status of European scale activities in support of coordinating deployment of Cooperative ITS services (Amsterdam Group, EC C-ITS Deployment Platform). These presentations have been complemented with information on plans and status of initial deployment initiatives within and between Member States (Cooperative ITS Corridor [NL-DE-AT], SCOOP@F [FR], Nordic Way [FI, SE, NO, DK]). In addition, the initiatives and steps towards deployment in the USA have been featured.
