CITRUS wants to provide a substantial impact on network safety and efficiency.
Road safety is an important factor in the daily operation of heavy vehicles. Both heavy vehicle operators and administrations carry a large responsibility to enable a safe use of heavy vehicles in an ever-changing mobility context. CITRUS believes that the constant call for new and improved road safety-enhancing technologies and measures can be supported by embracing improved C-ITS.
CITRUS wants to increase awareness at different levels on the benefits of C-ITS and its long-term importance to efficient network operations. This will likely lead to the increased utilisation of C-ITS throughout national networks, resulting in the cohesion and minimum service coverage of the total European transport network also including urban streets and rural roads. Hence, the impact of action is anticipated to have a major multiplicator effect from various perspectives.
