AUTOCITS: Regulation study for interoperability in the adoption of autonomous driving in urban nodes
Type of solution: Mode: optimizing
Contact: Castiñeira González, Rodrigo firstname.lastname@example.org
Stakeholders involved: Indra Sistemas S.A.; DGT; Universidad Politecnica de Madrid; INSIA (Spain) (coordinator)
INRIA Research Institute (France)
National Authority for Road Safety (ANSR); Universidade de Coimbra (Portugal)
The aim of the Study is to contribute to the deployment of 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. C-ITS, Cooperative Intelligent Transport System, allows different vehicles and traffic control centers communication and sharing information between each other by the use of traffic signals and roadside infrastructure.
Pilots will be implemented in 3 major Core Urban nodes located along the Core network Atlantic Corridor (Paris as French city example, Madrid as Spanish and last Lisbon like Portuguese one). The initial interoperability lab tests and cross border tests are structured by test infrastructure, test objective and results depending of the city.
The Action consists of Analysis and design, Pilots deployment and assessment, Dissemination and communication as well as Project Management and Coordination. The three pilots will test and evaluate C-ITS services for autonomous vehicles under the different applicable EU applicable traffic regulations framework by overviewing the vehicles involved, the traffic conditions and the services implemented in each road, study its extension to other European countries and contribute to the C-Roads and C-ITS platform as well as to other European standards organisations.
The studied roads consist on A9-Circular Regional Externa de Lisbon, Highway A13 of Paris and the HOV Lane located between M30 and M40. With alerts generated from the increased information available, these systems have a strong potential to improve road safety and the efficiency of the road transport.
The project is funded by the CEF initiative, being covered 50% as maximum by the EU budget.
