Aerialtronics introduces Intelligent Transport System at AUVSI

Orlando, USA, May 12th 2014 – During the 2014 Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) event Aerialtronics will introduce Cooperative Intelligent Transport System (ITS) to fellow unmanned systems manufacturers at AUVSI. Developed by NXP in cooperation with the automotive industry ITS gives vehicles and infrastructure a ‘virtual sensor’, whereby vehicles can build “mental maps” of surrounding traffic, to avoid incidents and improve safety.

ITS involves equipping vehicles and key infrastructures with sensors to facilitate communication between vehicles, thereby improving the safety of all road users. The ITS communicates standardised messages like Cooperative Awareness Messages (CAMs) that provide periodic updates on position and speed, Distributed Environmental Notification Messages (DENMs) which signal emergency events and road side works and Dynamic Traffic Light Information (DTLI) allowing for traffic users to anticipate on upcoming traffic situations.

Aerialtronics believes that the implementation of ITS in UAS could dramatically increase safety conditions for UAS users and the general public, by facilitating communication between UAS, other vehicles and key infrastructures. If all UAS manufacturers were to implement ITS in their systems, the overall safety of all systems would go up, thereby paving the way for a wider field of applications.
