ITS-T 2009

9th International Conference on Telecommunications for Intelligent Transport Systems

Nouveau Siècle congress centre, Lille, France

20-22 October 2009


The reduction of the impact of transport on the physical, social and human environment is a key challenge for sustainable mobility and development of urban areas. NTIC for ITS will contribute to the deployment of solutions that aim to optimize the use of existing infrastructures (road, rail, maritime, river), to enhance safety and security, to reduce operating and maintenance costs and to offer new services to customers and staff developing inter modal behaviour. The theme of 2009 edition was “NTIC for ITS to increase traffic efficiency and optimize transport modes under safety and security constraints".

The Conference brought together engineers and scientists in the field of New Technology of Information and Communication for ITS.

"CVIS: CALM Proof of Concept Preliminary Results"


ISO TC 204 WG 16 is specifying an Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) communication architecture known as CALM for vehicle-vehicle and vehicle-infrastructure types of communications (V2X). The key concept is to support a variety of peer-to-peer communication scenarios between various ITS sub-systems (vehicle, roadside, center and personal), a variety of communication modes (one-to-one or one-to-many), a diversity of applications (ITS safety, ITS non-safety, infotainment) over a diversity of communication channels. IPv6 (Internet Protocol version 6) is used as the convergence protocol between the various types of applications and the various available communication medium. A proof of this concept is currently underway in the framework of the CVIS European project which further improves and extends the CALM architecture. This paper presents some preliminary experimental results, particularly IPv6 horizontal and vertical handovers and CALM M5 datarate.
