ITS Corridors are sections of highways with connecting services enabling electronic communication between vehicle and infrastructure (V2I). V2I allows amongst others warnings of dangerous road situations. ITS corridors relate to the European Commission-led policy by supporting development of ITS on Ten-T corridors via specific funding (Connecting Europe facilities – CEF)
ITS and the Challenge
These types of services allow the deployment of specific automated functions, including lateral control, that request interaction between road and truck. The choice of routes will be made in agreement between national authorities and the truck companies. The Rotterdam-Frankfurt-Vienna corridor and the Nordic Way corridor (Sweden, Denmark, Finland) are currently under consideration.
