The EC has released the 2017 Rolling Plan on ICT Standardization that includes policies such as healthcare, cloud computing, intelligent transport systems, security, accessibility, the Internet of Things, eGovernment and smart grids, among many. The Rolling Plan proposes new actions on standardization for C-ITS systems.
The European Commission has released the 2017 Rolling Plan on ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) Standardization. The plan identifies ICT standardization activities that support EU policies. The Rolling Plan takes a unique look at standardization activities in the field of ICT by linking them to EU legislation and policies. That includes policies such as healthcare, cloud computing, intelligent transport systems, security, accessibility, the Internet of Things, eGovernment and smart grids, among many.
Proposed new actions on standardization for co-operative systems are:
ACTION 1: To complete the minimum set of standards required to deploy C-ITS systems and applications, completing the activities foreseen in the M/453, and achieving the Release 2 for C-ITS (including V2V, V2I/I2V and I2I communications).
ACTION 2: Plugtest activities for conformity and interoperability testing, including guidelines with methods for assessing the conformity of the identified minimum set of standards.
ACTION 3: Taking into account the C-ITS architecture, ICT related standards for applications to support vulnerable road users (VRU, e.g. projects like VRUITS). In particular, SDOs should agree on common requirements and relevant communication standards should be identified by ETSI TC ITS.
ACTION 4: SDOs to develop a standard to allow flawless spectrum sharing between RLAN (Wi-Fi) and C-ITS systems at the 5.9 GHz bands and also between C-ITS and LTE, based on current developed spectrum sharing report by CEPT working group FM and SE24 (ETSI ERM). Enabling Spectrum sharing with RLAN (Wi-Fi) and LTE without interference of the Cooperative functionalities in the 5.8 and 5.9 GHz bands
