This report addresses current technical and marketing aspects of ITS. It emphasizes the role of M2M communications in reaching ITS goals; and it is looking forward towards ITS enhancements based on WICT (Wireless Information Communications Technologies) of the 5G era, such as Visible Light Communications (VLC) and other. It also evaluates the status of driverless cars developments and 5G characteristics that such cars require to fulfil their tasks: the industry identified driverless cars as most viable form of ITS, dominating the roadways by 2040 and sparking dramatic changes in vehicular travel and transport economy.

The report updates the status of ITS standardization with the emphasis on WICT to sustain the uniform ITS development. It analyzes M2M specifics, industry activity, related markets and technologies.

The report also addresses Visible Light Communications (VLC) as an advanced technology for the ITS development, emphasizing that VLC is defined by the industry as a 5G technology. Details of VLC technological advances, its multiple ITS-related applications, market data and the survey of major industry players are also included.

The report is also analyzing advances in driverless car developments as a part of ITS progress related to the 5G evolution. Major driverless car features, standardization and the most important projects with multiple players’ products are analyzed. Benefits and issues of such cars commercial introduction are addressed. It is expected that by 2040 about 65%-70% of all cars on the roads will be driverless.

The report is intended for a wide audience of technical and managerial staff involved in the advanced ITS development; and for specialists in communications technologies that support such a development.
