The deployment of Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) and Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) communication, also known as cooperative intelligent transport systems (C-ITS) is speeding up in many developed countries. For example, Japan has already an operational system at national level, the United States are considering a law mandating dedicated short range communication in new cars, and the European Union has developed a strategy aiming at massive deployment from 2019.These technologies involve many opportunities for road operators both for road design and operations, but also many challenges. This study provides a detailed vision of these opportunities and challenges and formulates recommandations for countries or regions who would like to step in, including developing countries.The work is based on surveys carried out on many existing projects all over the world, completed by a review of the existing literature.The main opportunities identified are in the field of road safety, traffic management and traffic information, but these technologies can also reduce costs for road operators or even generate revenues. They can help road design and asset management. C-ITS provide also solutions to questions raised to road operators in developing countries, and to questions raised by automated driving.
