Intelligent Transport Systems (Directive)
The Commission wishes to accelerate the deployment of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and to establish a legal framework. In its Action Plan the Commission calls for action and sets a timeframe for the deployment and improvement of single ITS.
EU-widely binding standardisation, in particular the planned open in-vehicle platform for ITS services, increases the opportunities for innovations. However, there is a risk that the Commission will push through certain ITS services. This might generate high costs, though it is not certain whether customers are willing to pay for them.
