The MAVEN project aims to provide solutions for managing automated vehicles in an urban environment (with signalised intersections and mixed traffic). It will develop algorithms for organising the flow of infrastructure-assisted automated vehicles, and structuring the negotiation processes between vehicles and the infrastructure. Platooning is an evident example of a technology in this domain. The MAVEN approach will substantially contribute to increasing traffic efficiency, improving utilisation of infrastructure capacity, and reducing emission. MAVEN will build a prototype system that will be used both for field tests and for extensive modelling for impact assessment. Furthermore, the project will contribute to the development of enabling technologies, such as telecommunication standards and high-precision maps. A roadmap for the introduction of road transport automation will be developed, to support road authorities in understanding potential future changes in their role and in the tasks of traffic management. A white paper on "management of automated vehicles in a smart city environment" will position the MAVEN results in the broader perspective of transport in smart cities, and embed these with the principles and technologies for smart cities, as well as service delivery.

Consultation on EC draft delegated act on C-ITS is open

Draft European legislation relating to the implementation of cooperative ITS has been published. The proposed delegated regulation does not mandate the deployment of C-ITS, rather it sets out the technical and legal specifications that must be adopted should C-ITS stations and services be implemented. The main purpose of this regulation is to avoid a fragmentation
