C-ITS and traffic safety
|< Prev||Next >|
Several cooperative ITS services (C-ITS) are currently being tested in the Netherlands. With these in-car systems and services road users are informed, warned for certain situations on the road and advised to change their driving behaviour. It is expected that a lot of these services will be implemented in the coming years, not only on the motorway network but also in cities. Due to the experimental character of these services and their number and diversity, it is difficult to draw general conclusions about the (potential) effects. A lot about the impacts is still unclear. Rijkwaterstaat has asked TrafficQuest to do a quick scan on the effects of C-ITS, especially on road safety. The available literature was read and analysed and the numbers that were mentioned in these studies were summarised. The results of this quick scan are described in this memo (in Dutch).
