The CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium has been working since 2002 for harmonised services and system requirements to ensure a European compatible and interoperable framework. The benefit of such a framework for road safety has been proven in multiple research projects, e.g. in simTD, where it was shown that an interoperable C-ITS based warning system can reduce intersection collisions by more than 50 %. The Consortium therefore fully supports the initiative of the European Commission to improve road safety and traffic efficiency and to harmonise the functional, technical and security specifications for deployment through a Delegated Regulation. The Delegated Regulation supports very well the digitalisation of the roads, which together with the automotive industry increases the international competitiveness of the European Union.
