National C-ITS Reports from VeNIT Lab – Marmara University

Marmara University, a partner and the C-ITS use case provider in the DECICE Project, recently released the first report in a series of three as part of a protocol signed with the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, Republic of Türkiye. This report not only offers a detailed perspective on global efforts and regulations in the field of C-ITS but also delves into discussions and provides information about emerging trends and the role of groundbreaking technologies within the C-ITS environment.

VeNIT Lab (Vehicular Networking and Intelligent Transportation Systems Research Laboratory), located within the Computer Engineering Department of Marmara University, has been conducting research on Cooperative Intelligent Transportation Systems (C-ITS) since founded in 2013. Through these studies, the lab has not only produced academic publications but also developed many industrial-ready solutions in close cooperation with industry.

As one of its aims is to provide an intelligent collaboration platform for the elements of the computing continuum, the DECICE project incorporates three different use cases from diverse domains, including C-ITS. The C-ITS use case is led by VeNIT Lab (Marmara University) to demonstrate the abilities of the DECICE Framework in the area of C-ITS domain.

VeNIT Lab participated in numerous national and international projects and collaborations including the field of C-ITS with its experience in the field. As one of the recent examples of these efforts, Marmara University has signed a protocol with the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure, Republic of Türkiye in 2022. Within the scope of this protocol, Marmara University VeNIT Lab has undertaken the responsibility of preparing three reports regarding the C-ITS domain.

The first report discusses the current state of C-ITS studies worldwide and in Türkiye. The initial section of the report examines the regulations and action plans implemented in various countries. In addition, pilot applications are mentioned, and the system architecture used is defined. After examining the hardware used in the systems, the progress from various institutions and companies related to C-ITS studies in Türkiye is discussed. The report also reflects the role of key technologies within C-ITS, including cloud computing and Artificial Intelligence, and highlights the importance of improvements in these technologies, such as DECICE, in the C-ITS perspective.

The second report covers the stakeholders and components involved in C-ITS, as well as international regulations. Additionally, sample use cases are discussed with the aim of creating a guide for progress in Türkiye.

The second report covers international regulations and standards as well as stakeholders and components involved in C-ITS[1][2]. In addition, sample use cases are included and discussed in order to provide a guide for the developments and progress in this C-ITS field in Türkiye. The entire system is examined and the regulations and standards that products and applications must comply with are presented.

In the third report, data and data transfer mechanisms used in C-ITS services and applications are addressed. The source, transmission methods and management of various data between the vehicle, infrastructure and other components of the system are explained.

Understanding the work and experience of VeNIT Lab – Marmara University in these studies is important for gaining detailed knowledge about the Intelligent Intersection use case in the DECICE project.

The first report has been published on the Turkish ministry’s website and can be accessed through the link provided below. The other two reports have also been completed and will be published by the ministry soon. Please stay tuned for updates and upcoming reports.
