Standards, architectures and communication technologies for ITS and C-ITS

An overview of the benefits and challenges of existing and new C-ITS services for professional and non-professional drivers.

About this course

This online training course focuses on cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) user services. It provides a concise and clear overview of the existing and new C-ITS services designed for not only professional drivers, but also for normal drivers. Here you will have a chance to learn the benefits and challenges of these services. This training also offers a succinct insight into cooperation and exchange of data between professional drivers and public authority C-ITS services. It looks at the issues of C-ITS user acceptance for non-professional drivers. This is a very new and therefore fast moving area of research but the module outlines work and findings to date, and gives some ideas for the future. We also cover best practice in communicating C-ITS facts and benefits in a comprehensible and attractive way to the general public.
