The majority of the research efforts related to automated driving is focused on the vehicle side. Only recently, the role of the road infrastructure and how it can support the gradual insertion of Automated Vehicles (AVs) attracted attention. In particular, the upgrades of the infrastructure in terms of connectivity, along with Traffic-Management Centres (TMCs) deployment, are recognized as indispensable parts for data exchange and management of mixed vehicle traffic flows. Apart from the minimum road infrastructure quality standards (e.g. clear lane markings, visibility of signs), the kind of support provided by the infrastructure to the AVs (e.g. availability of highly accurate maps, guidance via wireless messages, detailed weather information and recommendations for optimum route) is important information which is expected to increase the use of automated functions while driving.
