The domain C-ITS (Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems) has seen development in Europe for more than a decade. It is the ambition of the European Commission and the EU Member States to establish large-scale deployment of sustainable services all road categories (including urban roads with inherent complex situations) with the support of authorities (at different levels), and ensure interoperability, security, and seamless availability of high-quality services for end-users (across different transport modes, environments and countries), with successful business models. This paper provides an overview of the history and the state of the art of C-ITS, analyses the challenges, defines C-ITS services, requirements and use cases, proposes generic a pan-European C-ITS architecture, investigates the next steps for C-ITS deployment, and discuss next steps for the C-ITS deployment.
