Brussels, 25 June 2019 – As the Council of the European Union prepares to decide on the Delegated Regulation on Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS), we call upon Member States to formally object to the current version of the Delegated Act.
The proposed Regulation fails to ensure technology-neutrality, ignoring that newer technologies have emerged in recent years, offering unique capabilities to accelerate the market penetration of C-ITS and to deliver enhanced safety in a global ecosystem.
We believe that automakers should be empowered to choose the best and most future-proof technologies.
An increasing number of automotive companies and world regions are already switching from older Wi-Fi-technology to C-V2X. vehicle models starting in 2022, while previously announced DSRC deployment (Dedicated Short-Range Communication) have been “paused” for an indefinite period.
Network effects will ensure that the more individuals, objects, and networks a car can connect to, the more people can be protected, and the more socio-economic benefits can be gained.

The Delegated Regulation is a significant opportunity to ensure that driving becomes a safer and smarter experience for all road users – including cyclists and pedestrians – while fostering innovation in both the automotive and ICT sectors.
