Concept of Operations for C-ITS Core Functions
  • Publication no: AP-R479-15
  • ISBN: 978-1-925294-13-2
  • Published: 18 March 2015

This document defines the core functions of the C-ITS platform including their objectives and capabilities. It identifies user needs and describes how the system will operate.

The Concept of Operations is intended to be an input to future decision making and system engineering documents, including system requirements and design documentation.
