C-ITS delegated act has been approved by the European Parliament
The European Parliament approved the delegated act on C-ITS today. The delegated act is pragmatic and technology neutral: It defines regulatory requirements now while ensuring a framework for future extensions, such as for 5G. Automotive suppliers deliver and support technology for both standards.
Sigrid de Vries, Secretary General of CLEPA, the association of automotive suppliers, comments:
“Today’s decision is good news. It creates the legal minimum requirements for the large-scale deployment of cooperative ITS systems in the EU. C-ITS technology will allow vehicles to ‘talk’ to each other, to the road infrastructure, and to other road users – for instance about dangerous situations, road works and the timing of traffic lights. It will make road transport safer, cleaner and more efficient.”
