TEN-T: EU to support cooperative intelligent transport systems in France

Date: 10/03/2015

The EU's TEN-T Programme  will support with over €6.5 million a pilot project improving road safety, traffic management and multimodality in France. The project will test and assess cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) allowing vehicles communicate to each other and with the road infrastructure for a greater transport efficiency and increased safety.

The pilot is the first of a two-phase project with the aim to study C-ITS and define a national roadmap for these services. It will focus on testing C-ITS applications improving the safety of road users and operating staff during works or maintenance, as well as traffic management and multimodality.

The project will install and test C-ITS in 3000 vehicles and on 2000 km of roads in Ile-de-France, Bretagne, Bordeaux and Isère, as well as on the highway between Paris and Strasbourg. The new C-ITS will enable communication on, among others, traffic interruptions due to obstacles, works, or accidents on the road.

The project was selected for funding with the assistance of external experts under the TEN-T Annual Call 2013, priority 'New generation of smart/connected transport'. Its implementation will be monitored by INEA, the European Commission's Innovation and Networks Executive Agency.

The project is to be completed by December 2015.
