With the advance of automation in the field of transportation, the number of emerging systems that are going to be deployed on the European roads is growing fast. The aim of C-Roads Italy, part of the Europe-wide C-Roads Project, is to evaluate the impacts on public roads and the feasible operational modes of Truck Platooning, when jointly implemented with Day 1 C-ITS. This paper, first, reports an extended summary of the available bibliography on Truck Platooning focused on the assessment of the implementation scenario presented as an example in Section IV. The literature review is necessary to investigate the more promising implementation schemes in the short term on the European area and the system expected impacts when deployed as a stand-alone service. Then, the evaluation methodology that is currently being drafted in the activity of C-Roads Italy is described, aimed to assess the jointed impact of Day 1 C-ITS services and Truck Platooning. Finally, a meaningful example of the approach for the evaluation of the jointed implementation of Truck Platooning and C-ITS services is presented, considering one of the use cases of the Road Works Warning Service, as defined in the current version of the C-Roads documents.
