Delegated Regulation - adopted by the European Commission in March 2019 - which aims at stepping up the deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) on roads across the European Union (EU).

Further information:

Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) connect all road users and traffic managers so that they may share and use information in real time. This delegated act requires vehicles, traffic signs and motorways to be equipped with technology to send standardised messages to all traffic participants around them. The specifications establish the minimal legal requirements for interoperability between the different cooperative systems used. The cooperative element – enabled by digital connectivity between vehicles, and between vehicles and the transport infrastructure – is expected to significantly improve road safety, traffic efficiency and comfort when driving, by helping the driver to make the right decisions and adapt to the traffic situation.

The act - published by the European Commission on 13 March 2019 - is based on Directive 2010/40/EU (ITS Directive), which aims at accelerating the deployment of these innovative transport technologies across the European Union. It also contributes to the strategy on automated mobility put forward by a Communication previously adopted by the Commission.
