Information and Communications Technology (ICT) is the use of computers and communication systems to collect, send, store, process and use data. ICT is the basis for intelligent transport systems (ITS), comprising a broad range of diverse technologies in the transport domain, using sensor, communication, information processing and control technology. Communication between vehicles and infrastructure defines the area of Cooperative ITS (C -ITS). General goal is to enhance comfort, safety, efficiency and effectiveness of transport and mobility.
