C-ITS Platform Report on the deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems in EU

After one year of productive work and fruitful discussions in the framework of the Platform for the Deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS), a report including guidance on how the EU can make the most of connected cars have been issued last Thursday, 21 January 2016 by the European Commission (DG Move).

The C-ITS Platform was launched by the Commission in July 2014. The objective of the C-ITS platform was to identify and agree on how to ensure interoperability of C-ITS across borders and along the whole value chain, as well as to identify the most likely and suitable deployment scenario(s). The scope of the C-ITS platform was focused on the main technical (frequencies, hybrid communications, (cyber-) security and access to in-vehicle data) and legal issues (such as liability, data protection and privacy). It also covered standardisation, cost benefit analysis, business models, public acceptance, road safety and other implementation topics, international cooperation, etc. The C-ITS platform will continue its work on 2016 not only focusing on the abovementioned topics but also by expanding in new areas as Automation and Digital Infrastructure.

ICCS member of the C-ITS Platform

Dr. Angelos Amditis is the representative of ICCS at the  C-ITS Platform of the European Commission (DG MOVE). The platform is going to adress the main barriers and enablers identified for the deployment of CITS in the EU, in relation to the services likely to be introduce in the first stage (Day 1 applications) in view to provide policy recommendations to the European Commission for the development of a Communication on the Deployment of C-ITS in the EU by the end of 2015.

Member of the Digital Transport and Logistics Forum (DTLF)

Dr. Angelos Amditis was appointed as a representative of ICCS at the Digital Transport and Logistics Forum (DTLF) of the European Commission. The Forum aims at further supporting digitalisation of freight transport and logistics. It will bring together Member States and stakeholders from all transport and logistics communities with the aim to identify challenges and areas where common action in the EU is needed, to provide recommendations, and to work on the implementation of these recommendations where appropriate.

ICCS member of the euRobotics AISBL

Dr. Angelos Amditis will represent ICCS at the euRobotics AISBL where recently became a member. The euRobotics AISBL is a non-profit organisation for the robotic sector that works as a 'public-private partnership' (PPP). PPP in general is a partnership where private sector partners, the European Union and, where appropriate, other partners, commit to jointly support the development and implementation of a research and innovation programme or activities.

euRobotics aisbl has members from the robotics industry (robot makers, component suppliers, system integrators and service providers), from academia and research, and from users of robotic systems, technologies and related services.
