Abstract

Intelligent transportation systems, intelligent vehicles and their implications on infrastructure and users are gaining an increasing importance as they offer a growing potential in line with the improvement in the technologies that enable them. In this regard, the market growth of vehicle semi-automation and connectivity applications is considerable. Also noteworthy is the large amount of news related to prototypes and research carried out by vehicle manufacturers, component manufacturers and other players entering the sector. The autonomous vehicle not only brings a technological leap, but also a social leap in automotive design and mobility, with implications for public transport and freight transport over short and long trips. Despite the progress made in recent years, many research areas rema in open if we are to achieve the highest levels of automation, levels 4 and S, such as an ana lysis of the interaction with the driver and the interaction with other users, a reliable recognition ofthe environment by reliable sensors at an affordable cost, legal and ethical issues, a more natural integration into unstructured environments, etc. C-ITS cooperative systems can be rightfully considered as catalysts in the current boom connected to the development and deployment of autonomous vehicles. In addition, C-ITS should not be regarded as independent, unconnected actions, as they add perception and decision elements supported by communications leading us to cooperative autonomous driv ing. In this scenario, the C-ITS European Platform has recently approved the deployment of a first set of cooperative systems, called Day-1, w hich will use V2V and V21 communications. During 2017, it is expected that this initial set will be expanded to Day-1.5 C-ITS, so 20 per cent of all vehicles include these capabilities by 2020. Therefore, we should anticipate a 'shared' traffic situation that w ill involve both vehicles equipped with cooperative capacities fitted with autonomous or semiautonomous functions and other purely manually driven vehicles that will remain the large majority for a long period of time. Beyond the traditional research areas in the field of automobile and road transport in general, other scientific and technological areas are becoming very relevant due to their direct or indirect applicability to the new scenario described above. In this sense, an interdisciplinary approach is becoming more common and synergies should be pursued.
