Action for advanced Driver assistance and Vehicle control systems Implementation,
Standardisation, Optimum use of the Road network and Safety.
Research and development have created a range of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that may facilitate the tasks of drivers in the growing complexity of traffic conditions. ADAS are fitted to an ever larger number of road vehicles, while it is not clear how they impact on environmental and safety performance of the road transport system.
The goal of AINO is to develop the collection, management and utilisation of real time information in transport and thereby to create prerequisites for concrete ITS services, which will improve the safety, efficiency and sustainability of the transport systems as well as increase the well-being of citizens and the competitiveness of Finnish companies.
European Road Safety Observatory (ERSO)
The European Road Safety Observatory (ERSO) is an essential website for all European road safety professionals. ERSO is the gateway into a central resource of European road safety data, knowledge and links.
This pilot website is one of the final results of SafetyNet, which is an integrated project funded by DG-TREN of the European Commission. The objective of the project is to build the framework of a European Road Safety Observatory, which will be the primary focus for road safety data and knowledge.
EVI - Electronic Vehicle Identification - can be defined as an electronic device that allows the unique, remote and reliable communication of a vehicle's identifying parameters. EVI can typically be comprised of an in-vehicle data storage element, suitable and secure interfaces and a vehicle-to-infrastructure data communication element. The 18-month EVI project began in February 2003 and is supported by DG TREN. Its main task is to carry out a feasibility study about electronic vehicle identification.
The aim of HASTE (Human Machine Interface And the Safety of Traffic in Europe) is to develop methodologies and guidelines for the assessment of In-Vehicle Information Systems (IVIS). To date, there have been attempts to provide manufacturers and testing authorities with a set of guidelines to assess the likely impacts of IVIS on the driving task, usually in the form of a checklist. Such checklists provide a tool that enables the identification of likely problems but they do not attempt to quantify safety problems. This project is fundamental to the development of a valid, reliable and efficient tool that will aid testing authorities in their safety evaluation of IVIS.
The aim of the Network of Excellence HUMANIST is to federate the researches in the domain of user/system interactions and their applications on road telematics and driver assistance systems and to create a European Virtual Centre of Excellence on HUMAN centred design for Information Society Technologies applied to road transport.
Integration of Navigation and Anticollission for Rural Traffic Environment.
The aim of IN-ARTE is to develop an integrated autonomous on-board system to be able to build an extended view of the environmentin front of the vehicle, integrating signals from anticollision radar, road recognition CCD sensors and navigation map, in order to guide and warn the driver through an optimum HMI in a series of rural areas related traffic tasks, such as intersection handling, speed selection while negotiations, curves, obstacle detection, etc
The aim of In-Safety is to develop intelligent, intuitive and cost-efficient combinations of new technologies and traditional infrastructure best practice applications, in order to enhance the forgiving and self-explanatory nature of roads.
ISAweb.be is a site on intelligent speed adaptation and road-safety wich will bring you the latest issues, news and information on Intelligent transport systems and road-safety in Belgium. You will find some general information on ISA, the projects in Belgium and around europe. Also there are several publications, which you can download for your own use.
