Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) – Intelligent Transport Services for road (ITS)
Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) for roads of the trans-European transport network as "intelligent" interface between roads and other transport infrastructure vitally contribute to enhancing road safety and reducing carbon emissions of the transport system by boosting the efficiency of infrastructure use and traffic operations for both passengers and freight. They also open up new perspectives for user services. TEN-T infrastructure shall be equipped with the relevant components in compliance with the EU transport policy in the field of intelligent transport systems, notably the Directive 2010/40/EU to support the deployment of systems which are interoperable and provide for continuity of services across Member States and operators.
These measures contribute to a sustainable transport system (in terms of economic, environmental and social impacts) and connected mobility.
In the framework of the development and deployment of intelligent transport systems, actions contributing to the deployment of Cooperative ITS (C-ITS), according to EU Regulations and standards and in line with the recommendations/outputs of the "C-ITS platform"1, shall be promoted for all Member States.
C-ITS improve existing and create new ITS services, with high potential for all road users and operators while offering significant socio-economic benefits. Research projects on C-ITS have delivered promising results which have been consolidated by pilots and are increasingly considered mature for deployment.
When relevant for the development and/or deployment of C-ITS services and with a view to ensure reliable positioning services, actions to ensure compatibility of information and value added ITS services with the systems established under the Galileo and EGNOS programmes (set out in Regulation (EU) 1285/2013) may also be addressed.
Also actions implementing Directive 2010/40/EU and its Delegated Regulations, shall be promoted for the Cohesion Member States only.
