Purpose and scope of this document
This document provides a snapshot of the views and requirements of city authorities regarding C-ITS. While it is widely understood that cities currently remain indifferent to C-ITS; this document attempts to explain why this is the case and what can be done in order to raise the level of engagement of city authorities in C-ITS developments. In this regard, the report highlights the key issues that need to be addressed, covering both the ‘why’ should I deploy (eg, what is the business case?) and ‘how’ can I deploy (eg, integration, organisational issues, procurement). Much of the city narrative over the years has focused on the ‘why’. However, in view of the gradual deployment of C-ITS in cities and the approaching milestone when C-ITS vehicles will start to become available (2019), it is as important to understand and work through the ‘how’.
This report is targeted at those stakeholders, public or private, involved in the acceptance, development and deployment of C-ITS, be that at local, national or European level. The report should appeal to anybody who is interested in understanding the urban transport context and specifically the city perspective on C-ITS and ITS more generally. The content is of a non-technical nature and should appeal to readers from a variety of backgrounds.
