  • Keeping the noise down in city centresexternal link
    If you live or work in a city centre, you will know how stressful constant traffic noise can be. But adaptations to roads, tyres, vehicles and urban planning could reduce traffic noise to less than one-tenth current levels in towns and cities, say EU researchers.

  • Personalised travel advice from your pocketexternal link
    While many of us are used to checking transport schedules on our smartphones, the i-TOUR app, created by EU-funded researchers, goes much further.

The i-TOUR team is currently discussing how to take the idea to the market.
