We have recently purchased so called R-ITS, i.e. Road Side Unit (RSU) devices namely at the Route 10 junction of the town of Győr. These devices are intended to provide road users with up-to-date information for the safe and efficient use of our roads. For example, they indicate the time remaining until a green signal or to provide drivers with speed advice that allows them to ”ride the green wave”. The vehicles able to receive such data can display messages on their onboard displays such as information on recommended speed approaching junctions, time remaining until green lights or other incidents.
13 of these similar devices have already been installed on motorways M0 and M1 (where our devices installed in 2015 have recently been upgraded. This will be the first time that we install such devices in an urban setting. We are continuously working on similar developments and carry out tests in real world environments in cooperation with the ZalaZone project and with the Faculty of Transportation Engineering and Vehicle Engineering of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics. A C-ITS roadshow is going to take place for the cross-border testing of applications.
