Common Initiative:
The Netherlands – Germany – Austria

The official launch

The transport ministries of the three countries have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation in the following areas:

  • development of a common implementation schedule for the implementation of the first C-ITS applications
  • definition of common conventions that ensure a harmonised interface with the vehicles in the three countries
  • construction of roadside equipment/systems along the motorway corridor Rotterdam - Frankfurt - Vienna for the first C-ITS applications
  • definition of a common implementation strategy for further C-ITS applications on motorways

For the introduction of the first applications of cooperative systems development projects are running in the Netherlands, Germany and Austria. They concern organisational, functional and technical aspects. The preparation and the gradual introduction of the new technology are carried out in close cooperation with the partners at a European level. These include standardisation organisations, the Amsterdam Group and the European Commission.
