EU Commissioner Viviane Reding talks to ITS International about progress in the Intelligent Car Initiative
“[…] Driver warning information systems can also be expected fairly soon. Further out, of course, once dedicated frequencies are allocated and safety standardisation across Europe is agreed, vehicle-to-vehicle and infrastructure communication will make sharing roads safer and less congested. […] co-operative vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicleto-infrastructure systems, such as the recently launched COOPERS, SAFESPOT and CVIS integrated projects. […] If we look at two major new areas of R&D, automated driving and cooperative systems, we must work across the Commission to support competitiveness, create market incentives and resolve liability issues. Privacy and security are already addressed in projects like SEVECOM, CVIS, SAFESPOT and COOPERS.”
