TN-ITS SPEEDS UP ISA ACROSS EUROPE
The newly revised General Safety Regulation has made Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA) mandatory in new types of vehicles, from M and N categories (cars, vans, trucks and buses) starting from 2022. The European Commission is currently drafting ISA technical requirements and future test procedures in a related ISA delegated act.
For years, speed has been one of the major causes of road fatalities. Intelligent Speed Assistance will relevantly increase traffic safety.
However, the current envisioned ISA deployments, based on camera-only systems, require a very costly up to date and well-maintained road infrastructure. Inaccurate or damaged road signs risk to be misinterpreted by the car, misleading the driver and causing accidents.
TN-ITS GO contributes to ISA’s success by deploying standardized advanced exchange and update mechanisms for digital map data. TN-ITS GO is planned to be a key part of the digital infrastructure of 14 European Member States and road operators by 2022. Read more
