Field operational test for cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS)
This paper reports on the progress of a large on-road field operational test (FOT) of eight Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS) safety applications on about 500 public and fleet vehicles, and road infrastructure, in the City of Ipswich, Queensland, Australia. The FOT is conducted by the Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR), Queensland University of Technology (QUT) and is financially supported by the iMOVE Cooperative Research Centre (CRC). It adheres to the European standard FESTA methodology. This paper describes progress related to the study design covering use case description, research questions, hypotheses formulation and identification of surrogate safety measures.
