Also considered is the point of view of the motorway operators looking at the management of the information proper to the co-operative driving concepts, for a better exploitation of motorway infrastructure. Project structure is in three main areas: scenario definition, system specification, and evaluation and assessment. Two main tasks of the DRIVE workplan are addressed: T120a - strategies for motorway RTI system; and T318 - position keeping and convoy control system.
