Overview[edit | edit source]
The ECoAT project (ECoAT Cooperative ITS corridor) "provides a basis for standardised, international, future-oriented cooperative ITS services. These will be useful as vehicles become more automated and will likely spur at least partial automation in areas where these services are fully deployed. The project centres on the deployment of cooperative ITS services on a testbed corridor linking the Netherlands, Germany and Austria. The project sketches out a joint road map for the introduction of initial cooperative ITS services, promotes the development of connected ITS services by agreeing common functional descriptions of an initial set of cooperative ITS services as well as their technical specifications and frames the implementation of these services along the testbed corridor."
