The aim of the AUTOC-ITS project is to contribute to the deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) in Europe by enhancing interoperability for autonomous vehicles as well as to boost the role of C-ITS as catalyst for the implementation of autonomous driving. To do that, three pilots will be implemented in three major European cities: Paris, Madrid, and Lisbon located along the Atlantic Corridor. These three pilots will test and evaluate the deployment of C-ITS services in autonomous vehicles under the applicable traffic regulation.
These pilots include testing of autonomous driving supported with C-ITS in open and closed traffic to check the applicable traffic rules. In concrete, the Action will conduct a study on traffic regulation for autonomous vehicles aimed primarily at urban nodes connected to the main transport network. Aspects of real-time monitoring, communications infrastructure, guiding strategies for complex man-oeuvres and high-level strategies for management of the autonomous vehicle from traffic control centers will also be addressed. The action will also study the extension of the results and large scale deployment in other European countries and contribute to initiatives such as the C-Roads and C-ITS platforms and other European standards organizations.
AUTOC-ITS brings the road authorities (DGT, ANSR) and C-ITS experts (INRIA, INDRA, UPM, UC, IPN) to carry out a study to contribute to the C-ITS Platform and bring answers to the field of automation.
