Policies & Issues: Energy & Climate
Smart mobility enables the movement of people and goods in an efficient, safe and comfortable way while minimising environmental impacts in support of the Paris Agreement. Different modes of transport co-exist and must be used to their optimum. In turn, the optimal utilisation of a transport system is achieved through the development of efficient communication and information systems that allow passengers, drivers and traffic operators to communicate and make decisions in real-time based on the options available at that moment. Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) will allow to adjust traffic operations on a continuous basis and further improve efficiency. C-ITS play a crucial role in reaping the benefits of digitalisation of the transport sector for both public and private stakeholders, including improved road safety or comfort of driving.
Today, Europe still has a chance to become a first mover in smart mobility, gaining global leadership and creating major business opportunities while increasing safety, security, health and convenience for passengers and drivers. In this position paper, Orgalim gives its views on how the Commission's delegated regulation on the deployment and operational use of cooperative intelligent transport systems ('C-ITS') can support these aims.
