It is a dedicated goal of CODECS to align implementation road maps at the level of served use cases, to ensure that end-users experience the same applications in a coherent manner when moving between existing and further upcoming deployment hot spots. Through interactive discussion, CODECS aims to get stakeholder feedback on expected and desired use cases together with the point in time they might be implemented in the consecutive deployment phases. This road mapping activity gives guidance to innovation phases beyond Day One and the corresponding research, testing and standardisation.

Your contribution to this discussion is highly appreciated and you’re cordially invited to take part in a workshop on “Perspectives in functional road mapping”.

The workshop takes place on Wednesday, 17 February 2016, at the Ministry of Transport (Nábřeží L. Svobody 1222/12) in Prague, Czech Republic.

We cordially invite you to register for the workshop here.

The tentative agenda for the workshop is provided here.

Participation is free of charge. Participants do their travel arrangements on their own accounts.

C-ITS provide a wide array of information and warning services for a safe, sustainable and comfortable future mobility. Deployment of vehicles communicating among each other and with road infrastructure lies ahead, initially progressed in corridor projects and pilots all over Europe. Coordination between these front runners and aligned roll-out plans for the phased deployment are inevitable to let traffic participants experience the benefits of C-ITS seamlessly.

CODECS acts as a nodal point pooling stakeholders involved in C-ITS deployment in the consecutive implementation phases. The Coordination and Support Action establishes a stakeholder network for stimulating a transparent information flow and exchange of lessons-learned from initial deployment. Through workshops, webinars and personal consultation, CODECS takes inventory on the status and implementation approaches in early deployment activities (technologies, specifications and functions), roles and responsibilities of different stakeholders as well as issues for strategic decision making. CODECS consolidates these procedures, stakeholder interests, preferences and requirements and plays them back into the network. Through interactive discussion, it develops

  • a V2I/I2V standards profile,
  • white papers closing gaps in standardisation, and
  • a blueprint for deployment

These results of CODECS sustain the interoperability of systems and services across hot spots of early deployment, enabling end-users to witness benefits of cooperative road traffic first-hand, in turn impacting on the penetration rates. CODECS promotes the idea of cooperative road traffic to a broad target audience to support this effect.
