The CVIS project aims to design, develop and test the technologies needed to allow cars to communicate and network directly with the roadside infrastructure. With CVIS, drivers can influence the traffic control system directly and get individual guidance with the quickest route to their destination. Speed limits and other road sign information, as well as warnings of approaching emergency vehicles and similar urgent messages will be sent wirelessly to the vehicle and displayed to the driver.
To validate the project’s results, CVIS technologies and applications will be tested at one or more test sites in seven European countries: France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands/Belgium, Sweden and the UK.
