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 some succinct insight on 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.

The training program will address five main questions, namely:

  • Which are the ITS and C-ITS services designed for professional drivers
  • What is the essence and conditions for C-ITS cooperation between of public authorities and professional drivers
  • Which are the ITS and C-ITS services for non-professional drivers
  • What are the main issues around user acceptance of C-ITS services for non-professional drivers
  • How can we best communicate the benefits of ITS to the general public
