C2C-CC welcomes the EC efforts to save lives and moving ahead with setting up a clear, future-proof regulatory framework through the delegated regulation on C-ITS, which is critical for the continuation of ITS-G5 deployment. ITS-G5 is a short-range direct ad hoc wireless technology used for increasing road traffic safety and it is a complement to network-based cellular technology (e.g., 3G/4G/5G). We strongly believe that the hybrid approach taken by EC is a necessity for launching connected and automated driving. ITS-G5 and network based communication is an ideal solution for increasing safety and efficiency on European roads.
