on 50 years of road research 2 C-ITS Definition What is C-ITS? C-ITS is a form of intelligent transport system that enables communication and real-time information sharing between vehicles and roadside infrastructure, in order to improve safety, productivity, efficiency and environmental outcomes of the road system and to provide services to all road users and operators, through giving advice or facilitating actions. Who is C-ITS for C-ITS is for all road based transport modes and where other transport modes interact with the road (e.g. railway level crossings), including its users and managers.

on 50 years of road research 4 The Emerging Global Platform Concept for Consideration –It is becoming increasingly apparent that the key international players are coming together to work towards harmonisation around a single global platform Refer to signed agreements btw EU & USA, USA & Japan and possibly EU & Japan soon Consideration is being given to all applications having a unique identifier and approved/tested by a single international body (refer ISO TC204 Workshop Nov 2010) ETSI has identified 32 use case for applications for initial deployment within 3 years post 2013 when specifications are finalised (refer ETSI TS ) The deployment of C-ITS applications is a Safety Critical process no matter what the application and therefore must be fully integrated with the vehicles onboard ADAS and HMI systems The Australian industry needs to unite around the concept of a single Global Platform

Telematics in-vehicle plug and play connectivity Regulatory Services supporting transport productivity Safety Applications embedded in the vehicle Consumer Facing Applications such as infotainment, navigation and payment services including standardisation of in-vehicle communications, powering and mounting nomadic devices Government Requirements These services could continue to be provided by private or government service providers such as TCA Car Facing Car aware of its surroundings knows actual speeds, where other cars are and whats ahead, the current speed limit and is in communications with roadside infrastructure and driving task can be assisted

on 50 years of road research 9 DSRC 5.9GHz Fundamental to C-ITS is the use of the 5.9GHz band, particularly for safety applications Austroads has undertaken considerable background research relating to using the 5.9GHz band including interference studies Austroads has formally requested that ACMA set aside 5.9Ghz for C-ITS in Australia ACMA has undertaken a thorough investigation into the use of 5.9Ghz for C-ITS against its principles for Spectrum Management including seeking comment the public and interest groups At present they have placed and embargo on 5.9Ghz band It is likely that there will soon be an announcement by ACMA relating to the use of 5.9Ghz for ITS, together with appropriate conditions for its use in Australia.
on 50 years of road research 10 C-ITS Mission and Vision Mission: To bring C-ITS to fruition in Australia and to utilise the potential of C-ITS to improve the safety, productivity, efficiency and environmental outcomes of the road system and to provide services to all users and operators of the road and road related system. Vision: A transport system that utilises C-ITS through a national platform which provides safer, better and more cost effective transport.
on 50 years of road research 11 C-ITS Objectives The objectives of C-ITS are to: improve road safety enhance mobility and access improve transport efficiency, reliability and productivity improve social and environmental transport outcomes support government policies and regulation improve the productivity of the nation through improving the productivity of its road network improve transport network resilience to be recognised internationally in the field of C-ITS.
on 50 years of road research 12 C-ITS Objectives (cont) The objectives of C-ITS will be achieved through: improving road safety by vastly improving risk detection and its notification to vehicles and drivers through advance driver assistance information services and applications enhancing personal mobility by offering increase convenience, mode choice and access to services improving transport efficiency, reliability and productivity through providing for the efficient movement of people through enhanced public transport services and goods through enhanced logistics and routing and by improving the management of traffic through the use of enhanced transport network performance information providing improved social and environmental transport outcomes through reduced energy consumption and emissions supporting government policies and providing enhanced compliance with regulations (including self regulation) improving the productivity of the nation through more efficient use of transport infrastructure, energy and resources improving the transport networks resilience to recover from a shock and have the road network operating at its full potential when it is required most.
on 50 years of road research 13 Australias Focus for C-ITS To be ready for deployment by To recognise that Government needs to take the lead by providing direction and setting up the appropriate legal framework. To recognise that industry is also a key player (note: industry refers to vehicle manufacturers, device manufacturers, telecommunication providers etc). To develop and follow a clear and transparent roadmap so that key decision makers can see that C-ITS is deliverable and observe schedule. Determine who is responsible for C-ITS, recognising that C-ITS is a relatively new field with expertise beyond that typically associated with road authorities.
on 50 years of road research 14 Australias Focus for C-ITS (cont) Recognise that a global platform is being developed/defined, with the US, Europe and Japan having agreements in place and progressing towards a one world platform. Recognise that extensive work on refining architectures and developing standards is still ongoing internationally. Recognise that Australia is only a small player and therefore needs to be closely aligned with international players and developments. Recognise that international commitments and effort in the C-ITS arena are still evolving and that Australia needs to be actively engaged Understand the issues around mandating. Recognise that there is need for Australia to undertake trial and demonstration projects to obtain experience and to enable applications to be deployed.
on 50 years of road research 15 A Major Undertaking for Australia Delivery of the C-ITS Platform Cooperative-ITS is no-longer a dream, it will be a reality within the next 5 years C-ITS benefits will be proportional to the number of applications deployed and the number of vehicles equipped C-ITS cannot be deployed on an ad-hoc, unmanaged basis, all applications and systems need to ensure safety –The vehicle and the driver must be kept safe and secure at all times and systems cannot conflict Careful planning and controls are needed to ensure effective deployment requiring considerable technical expertise Therefore C-ITS will be a major undertaking in terms of design, specification, delivery, resourcing and cost
