The 9th ETSI Workshop on Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) will take place on 6-8 March 2018 and will kindly be hosted by the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy in the city of Berlin, Germany.


MINISTRYAt the end of 2014, the European Commission took the initiative to create a C-ITS deployment platform to bring together the different stakeholders to assist the introduction of Cooperative ITS in Europe. A report of the phase 2 this platform has been completed September 2017, together with first versions of a European wide security framework , including a Common European Certification Policy. To support this work, ETSI has been updating the relevant specifications to fit the European wide security framework.
End 2016, the European Commission issued a Commission Communication on C-ITS indicating the planned actions as well as recommendations on how to achieve European deployment of C-ITS.
In parallel of these activities to establish a European regulatory and policy framework, deployment activities have been started in several European countries, and the C-Roads platform has been established to coordinate the different European Member States' deployment activities.
At the same time, automated driving has over the last year received a lot of attention and the industry is preparing for the next steps towards this.

Objective of the event

In light of these exciting activities in 2017, this workshop will provide a status of the ongoing activities to facilitate the deployment of Cooperative ITS, not only in Europe but also around the globe.
This will be also the opportunity to get an insight into :

  • some of the challenges bringing the standardized technologies from paper into operational deployments, such as the regulatory aspects, the technical challenges and the testing aspects;
  • the work on hybrid solutions including cellular technology together with the short range C-ITS communication technology;
  • the next step moving from the initial Day 1 C-ITS services through the next phases of C-ITS towards higher and higher degrees of automation. Including identifications of the technology and regulatory challenges as well as the need for standardization.
