Siemens Mobility provides connected vehicles system for Austrian highways
The “Cooperative Intelligent Transport System” (C-ITS) is a next generation traffic management system that uses broadcast technology to analyze roadway conditions and disseminates information to motorists relating to traffic jams, accidents, and lane closures.
ASFiNAG is the first infrastructure provider in Europe to reach the milestone of installing a network connecting the vehicle and road.
The process of implementing the system across 2,200 kilometers of highway and expressway in Austria has already started.
ASFiNAG has currently initiated the process to install the equipment along Austria’s highways, this includes up to 525 Siemens Mobility Road-Side Units (RSU), as well as establishing a control center. ■
