  • 2 light vehicles and 1 motorcycle
  • 3 signalised intersections, broadcasting signal phase information to C-ITS equipped vehicles
  • 1 portable roadside unit broadcasting speed limit information to C-ITS equipped vehicles
  • 3 portable roadside units receiving and collecting data from C-ITS equipped vehicles.

Safety broadcasts

Drivers in participating vehicles see the following messages:

  • Intersection collision warning
  • Harsh braking ahead warning
  • Red light alert when light is red or amber
  • Speed limit information.
