• CIMEC and CODECS join forces


    CIMEC is joining forces with the H2020 Coordination & Support Action  CODECS (COoperative ITS DEployment Coordination Support), whose main purpose is to harmonise and align the C-ITS deployment initiatives around Europe. CODECS runs from May 2015 until April 2018 and is coordinated by ITS automotive nord. The project is working on a V2I/I2V standards profile, white papers to close gaps in standardisation, a blueprint for deployment to ensure the interoperability of systems and services across deployment hot spots, a use-case centric road map to prepare innovation phases beyond Day One, and recommendations for strategic decision making. CODECS will hold a number of public workshops and webinars to enable the wider community to learn about and provide input to work in progress.

    Given the strong complementarities, both CIMEC and CODECS will cooperate in a number of areas. For instance, both projects are coming together to form a joint City Pool, made up of local authority representatives, whose main purpose is to ensure broad outreach to local authorities for defining user needs and requirements regarding C-ITS and generally raising awareness.

    The first workshop of this joint City Pool will take place on 3 March 2016 in London. More information will be available soon.
