The digitizing of MOVYON infrastructure assets on motorways and roads will allow for the exchange of information between infrastructuresand vehicles, and between one vehicle and another. Initially this dialogue will be mainly I2V, Infrastructure-to-vehicle, later it will be upgraded to V2X, Vehicle-to-everything, thus allowing for communication between vehicles, road assets and other users, for instance pedestrians.

regarding driving preferences and styles.
for more security and safety in road travel.
The V2X communication platform between vehicle and road infrastructure is direct and bi-directional. Setting up a platform allows for processing data sent directly by the RSU or by ASPI systems, and for directing the information packages. The vehicle thus receives the information and sends them to the car, thanks – for example – to infotainment.
This solution makes it possible to collect the driver's data in anonuymous format, then aggregate them inside the traffic control centre, which collects information about all vehicles on the road network. Having heterogeneous information results in a competitive edge, especially during the first technological transition phase, where connected vehicles and others will have to coexist, allowing in any case for the exchange of reliable and safe information.
This technology is based on a european standard derived from the DSRC short-range protocol IEEE 802.11.p. It is chosen with a view to maximum interoperability and close partnership with other interconnected motorway operators: it allows for coexistence with other technologies based on DSRC 5.8 ghz – Electronic Toll Collection – and digital tachograph.
MOVYON is experimenting with I2V-V2I using an Internet-connected platform, which users can access through their smartphones, possibly 5G. This approach, complementary to other short-range technologies, will allow for maximum scalability and flexibility in its future developments.
