Cyclists suffer a disproportionate share of serious injuries and fatalities, and indeed in recent years that disadvantage has been growing. At the same time they often are not treated equally by traffic systems (e.g. traffic signals frequently fail to register their approach or presence). XCYCLE has the aim of developing the means to equalise the treatment of cyclists in traffic and thus both enco ...

PROactive Safety for PEdestrians and CyclisTs (PROSPECT)

Start date: May 1, 2015, End date: Oct 31, 2018,

The past decade has seen significant progress on active pedestrian safety, as a result of advances in video and radar technology. In the intelligent vehicle domain, this has recently culminated in the market introduction of first-generation active pedestrian safety systems, which can perform autonomous emergency braking (AEB-PED) in case of critical traffic situations. PROSPECT will significantly ...

Human Factors of Automated Driving (HFAuto)

Start date: Nov 1, 2013, End date: Oct 31, 2017,

Road transport is an essential part of society but the burden of traffic crashes, congestion, and pollution is enormous. Highly automated driving (HAD) has the potential to resolve these problems and major car makers foresee that HAD will be technically ready for commercialisation within one decade from now. However, industry is ill-prepared to deal with imminent human-error and legal consequences ...

ecoDriver addresses the need to consider the human element when encouraging "green" driving, since driver behaviour is a critical element in energy efficiency. The focus of the project is on technology working with the driver. The project aims to deliver the most effective feedback to drivers on green driving by optimising the driver-powertrain-environment feedback loop. It will carry out a substa ...

Low-noise road surfaces are recognized as a cost-effective tool for traffic noise abatement. The best performance can be achieved by optimizing surface texture and porosity. That way, a bottom line of a 3dB lifetime average reduction with respect to ordinary asphalt has been reached. Any progress must resort to another noise-relevant characteristic i.e. elasticity by which the noise due to tyre v ...

City multi-Role Optimized Vehicle (CITY MOVE)

Start date: Jan 1, 2010, End date: Mar 31, 2013,

"The delivery of freight in urban areas is based on general purpose commercial vehicles, not dedicated to a mission in a very specific scenario like urban areas. This is particularly true for medium vehicles (7,5-12 tons) that are however widely used in towns. CITY MOVE aims to develop a new concept for urban delivery vehicles, a real breakthrough from the actual vehicle platforms, using the lates ...

"The development of adaptive safety systems addressing vehicle occupant protection requires the use of in depth knowledge of various occupant features, specifically those related to the risk of injury. All occupants in passenger vehicles are at risk of sustaining whiplash injuries in a low severity crash. Whiplash associated disorders (WAD), so called whiplash injuries, resulting from car crashes, ...

Re-road – End of life strategies of asphalt pavements (Re-road)

Start date: Jan 1, 2009, End date: Dec 31, 2012,

The majority of the European roads are paved with asphalt material. The dismantling and end of life strategies for these pavements are very divergent among the EU member states and the associated countries. In general the share of recycling the reclaimed asphalt in new asphalt courses is rather lower than it could be technically. The Re-road project aims to address these problems with a holistic ...

"Between 1994 and 2001, 361 children were injured or killed during transportation to/from their school in Sweden, whereas 455 were killed or injured in Austria only in 2007 and 97 were killed in Italy in 2005. In a single school bus accident in Greece in 2003, 20 children lost their lives. Different as the above numbers may be, they all tell us one thing: Crashes involving school buses and crashes ...

The Intelligent Car Initiative has identified road safety, energy efficiency, and traffic congestion as the main challenges currently being faced by European transportation. Despite their severity, these issues may be improved with the use of new in-vehicle technologies currently not available in the market. However, implementing new technologies implies a risk to manufacturers. Factors such as di ...
