C-MobILE is a European project carrying out large-scale deployment of cooperative intelligent transport services designed to deal with mobility challenges across Europe. The main objective of the project is to support local authorities deploying the C-ITS services they need and to engage with various stakeholders and road users by assessing benefits against costs.

Today’s highlight is the workshop which took place in Bilbao, Spain, organised by the C-MobILE project (Accelerating C-ITS Mobility Innovation and deployment in Europe) consortium and its local actors with the aim of developing applications and solutions to deal with specific urban transport challenges.

The workshop brought together public authorities, end-users and key mobility stakeholders to validate business models, use cases, and technical and non-technical requirements for C-ITS implementations, as well as to discuss various new services and potential “bundles” of services. Participants were presented with 35 use cases for 20 C-ITS services developed by the project consortium, and defined around 450 requirements for large-scale C-ITS implementation in Europe. Transport experts and stakeholders reviewed these findings and provided valuable input to the methodology being used as well as the validation of the results achieved by the C-MobILE consortium to develop new and bespoke C-ITS services.

Today, mobility stakeholders from across Europe reached an agreement on the needs and requirements for developing and deploying cooperative intelligent transport services (C-ITS) in eight major European cities and regions. C-ITS services are being deployed across Europe in cities like Bilbao which provide valuable transport information to road users, such as:

  • Parking availability information
  • Blind-spot detection for cyclists
  • Roadworks warning
  • Traffic flow notifications.
