  • Title: AUTOCITS Regulation Study for Interoperability in the Adoption of Autonomous Driving in European Urban Nodes

  • Program: CEF- TRANSPORT Atlantic corridor

  • Duration: November 2016 - December 2018

  • Coordinator: Indra Sistemas S.A. (Spain)

  • Partners: Indra Sistemas S.A. (Spain); Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), Spain; Dirección General de Tráfico (DGT), Spain; Inria (France); Instituto Pedro Nunes (IPN), Portugal; Autoridade Nacional de Segurança Rodoviária (ANSR), Portugal; Universidade de Coimbra (UC), Portugal.

  • Abstract: The aim of the Study is to contribute to the deployment of C-ITS in Europe by enhancing interoperability for autonomous vehicles as well as to boost the role of C-ITS as catalyst for the implementation of autonomous driving. Pilots will be implemented in 3 major Core Urban nodes (Paris, Madrid, Lisbon) located along the Core network Atlantic Corridor in 3 different Member States. The Action consists of Analysis and design, Pilots deployment and assessment, Dissemination and communication as well as Project Management and Coordination.

Collaborations with Major European Organizations

  • RITS is member of the euRobotics AISBL and the Leader of “People transport” Topic. This makes from Inria one of the rare French robotics representatives at the European level. See also: http://www.eu-robotics.net/

  • RITS is a full partner of VRA – Vehicle and Road Automation, a support action funded by the European Union to create a collaboration network of experts and stakeholders working on deployment of automated vehicles and its related infrastructure. VRA project is considered as the cooperation interface between EC funded projects, international relations and national activities on the topic of vehicle and road automation. It is financed by the European Commission DG CONNECT and coordinated by ERTICO – ITS Europe. See also: http://vra-net.eu/
