EC allocates single radio frequency for co-operative systems

EC allocates single radio frequency for co-operative systems

The frequency can be used for immediate and reliable communication between cars, and between cars and roadside infrastructure.

The 30 MHz of spectrum in the 5.9 GHz band will be allocated within the next six months by national authorities across Europe to road safety applications, without barring other services already in place (such as radio amateur services).

The Commission also intends to foster investment in smart vehicle communication systems by the automotive industry and public funding in essential roadside infrastructure.

The EC's decision to reserve the single radio frequency is an example of successful co-operation in Europe to establish conditions for interoperability and cross-border use of car-to-car and car-to-infrastructure communication. It will facilitate the development and testing of road safety related applications in the EU by providing a common and long-term spectrum access to the automotive industry and road operators.
