Co-operative Vehicle-Infrastructure Systems

Project description


eSafety Co-operative systems for road transport

Cooperative systems in transport can bring new intelligence for vehicles, roadside systems, operators and individuals, by creating a universally understood communications "language" allowing vehicles and infrastructure to share information and cooperate in an unlimited range of new applications and services. Expected benefits include increased road network capacity, reduced congestion and pollution, shorter journey times, extended and more accurate traffic information, improved traffic safety, lower vehicle operating costs, more efficient logistics etc.The CVIS Integrated Project will develop and integrate the essential basic and enabling technologies such as a multi-channel communications and network platform readily adaptable for both vehicle and roadside, a highly accurate positioning and local map module, and an open software environment for applications. Combined into a "CVIS platform" unit, these components will allow a vehicle to share urgent information with nearby vehicles, and to dialogue with both the immediate roadside infrastructure and with infrastructure operators and service providers. New tools for "cooperative monitoring" will both deliver real-time traffic information over the entire road network, and augment the information available to local control functions such as intersection controllers.The CVIS project will develop, demonstrate and assess at test sites in 6 countries, selected reference applications of cooperative systems in the urban and inter-urban environments, and for freight and fleet and public transport management. The results will be a library of basic service components and functions, for in-vehicle and roadside implementation, to be used for shaping cooperation in a flexible way. Both core technologies and generic application services will use open standards for maximum interoperability and ready take-up into products attractive for the individual, profitable for the manufacturer and effective for the infrastructure operator.
