Thanks to adoption of international standards, C-ITS services are fully inter-operable and continuity of services can be guaranteed independently from geographical location, C-ITS service provider and C-ITS system suppliers
Key actors from public and private sectors involved in the C-ITS service chain are engaged in a long term cooperation to create added value to all users in their daily mobility, to develop viable business models, to raise awareness on C-ITS benefits, to build European-wide C-ITS market and to contribute to economic growth.
A deployment scenario can be customized according to user needs, urban transport and mobility policies, existing infrastructure and financial capacity. Thanks to scalable architecture, implementation can start with a first package of C-ITS services that deliver quick benefits with respect to urban mobility priorities and can be further developed in a modular approach by means of additional services and/or extended geographical coverage and/or an increasing number of users with minimum additional costs. Combined use of G5 and 3G/4G communication technologies contribute to speeding up the penetration rate of several C-ITS services.
C-ITS services are not restricted to a small number of front-runner cities. All cities can benefit from experience of early adopters by means of effective knowledge sharing to facilitate decision making in initial C-ITS investment and to accelerate deployment of customized C-ITS solutions.
Cities can rely on sound evidence of C-ITS benefits to take decisions on C-ITS service implementation that can be integrated within existing transport and mobility infrastructure. Cities can invest in confidence in a portfolio of C-ITS services based on mature and cost-effective technologies, and open and standardized architecture enabling high quality service provision and capacity to integrate new features.
