Connected and automated vehicles can exploit V2X communications to coordinate their maneuvers and improve the traffic safety and efficiency. To support such coordination, ETSI is currently defining the Maneuver Coordination Service (MCS). The current approach is based on a distributed solution where vehicles coordinate their maneuvers using V2V (Vehicle-to- Vehicle) communications. This paper proposes to extend this concept by adding the possibility for the infrastructure to support cooperative maneuvers using V2I (Vehicle-to- Infrastructure) communications. To this aim, we propose a Maneuver Coordination Message (MCM) that can be used in cooperative maneuvers with or without road infrastructure support. First results show the gains that cooperative maneuvers can achieve thanks to the infrastructure support. This paper also analyses and discusses the need to define MCM generation rules that decide when MCM messages should be exchanged. These rules have an impact on the effectiveness of cooperative maneuvers and on the operation and scalability of the V2X network.
