27 August 2020: ASECAP maintains "Protected Zone Database"

Megaphone 2223049 1280

In order to avoid harmful interference to CEN DSRC tolling systems operating at 5.8 GHz, vehicle as well as roadside ITS stations need to activate interference mitigation techniques when being inside a "protected zone", which is a circular area around tolling equipment.

The European Protected Zone Database is maintained by ASECAP and available for download.

13 July 2020: Lives and Investments are Safeguarded by ITS G5 Seamless Evolution, CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium

Megaphone 2223049 1280

2019 Day 1 deployments started in Europe based on ETSI ITS G5. The cooperative V2X functions are expected to assist improving road safety towards accident free traffic (vision zero), enhancing road capacity, reducing harmful emission to the environment (green deal), supporting successive automation on roads and by that are enabler for further disruptive changes of mobility in future. Investing vehicle manufacturers and road operators see clear advantages in the seamless evolution principle of ITS G5. By using this technology, you have the freedom to reliably operate deployed safety related functions over time as it is designed to be future proof, supporting multi-generational operation between older and newer vehicles, road infrastructure and devices serving their different economic lifecycles. Thereby, today and in future IEEE-based V2X fosters innovations like cooperative automated driving and protection of vulnerable road users without sacrificing safety or undermining investments. Hence, the V2X ITS G5 technology and the standardised protocols give you the best preconditions for shaping future mobility.

"C-ITS deployment takes off"

Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) are key to addressing increased road traffic congestion and to reduce road fatalities, for which the European Union has set challenging reduction targets. First implementers from vehicle manufacturers, road authorities and road operators are jointly committed to C-ITS, that is based on available and proven interoperable harmonized specifications, standards and technologies.

Deployment of C-ITS and ITS-G5 is progressing and therefore the first important step towards truly connected and automated driving has been taken!​
