MAX Series Episode 8: Rolling Out Safety Advances with C-ITS or V2X

Tue 09 Mar 2021


Michigan has been active with model deployments of connected vehicles (V2V) and infrastructure (V2I), principally using Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) as the communication medium. Based on positive results, US Federal R&D programs have elevated V2V technology and operations to a safety initiative of national significance. In Australia, this set of technologies has been termed Co-Operative ITS (C-ITS) and has been trialled using both cellular and DSRC, including use of more recent 5G capabilities and reference to a comprehensive set of applications, or use cases, formulated in Europe. At this point, C-ITS consists of a reasonably firm set of communication protocols, and a well-seasoned set of use cases.

These use cases are aimed at specific behaviours which are in turn related to crash or pre-crash circumstances. Significant challenges remain in putting together the necessary public and private sector actors and arriving at viable co-operative business models. Learnings from the respective jurisdictions will be discussed.
