5. Amsterdam Group Road Map on Cooperative ITS

The aim of this road map is to put all strategic activities/studies in order (in time, in relation, responsibilities) which are needed for deployment. It has two levels a strategic and an operational one. In some aspects also V2V and V2I aspects are separated.

From its nature, the Amsterdam Group roadmap intends to provide orientation about necessary elements in order to start day one deployment by 2015:

  • Only some road authorities and operators will be ready for deployment at this point in time and hence different levels of involvement concerning C-ITS deployment do exist.
  • In order to reflect the coordinating function of the AG concerning C-ITS deployment of day one services properly, the roadmap is indicative to the members of its umbrella organisations.
  • It is furthermore expected that deployment initiatives aligned with the intentions of the Amsterdam Group (such as e.g. the Austrian-German-Dutch C-ITS corridor) develop their version/plan of a deployment handbook. This is adapted to the (trans) national needs but fits smoothly in a coherent picture of day-one deployment in the European Union.

The road map has a limited horizon: only DAY 1 services deployment which will be started by car industry by 2015, road side has to catch up with this plan. It makes use of existing research, developments, studies as much as possible reflecting also common agreed points of view in AG on points (see above in this paper).The roadmap is basically technical and a bit strategic but not operational and economical (cost benefit).

The essential elements of the roadmap have the following timelines:
