Target outcome

  • a) Field Operational tests for Integrated Safety Systems and Co-operative Systems to assess improvements in the efficiency of the transport system, in the safety of all road users and in making individual mobility more comfortable. This includes large-scale test programmes aiming at a comprehensive assessment of the efficiency, quality, robustness and user-friendliness of close-to market systems, before their full-scale deployment in Europe. Where needed, performance validation of safety-related co-operative systems can be envisaged in controlled proving ground environments emulating realistic levels of complexity.
    Projects need to collect statistically significant data allowing analysis of user acceptance, performance and benefits for road safety and efficiency of both autonomous on-board and cooperative systems, and to assess especially the impact of integration of in-vehicle safety systems with the co-operative systems including naturalistic driving tests, where possible building on initiatives promoted by Member States and/or Associated Countries.
    The objective is to support at least two IPs to be funded under a)
  • b) ICT-based systems and services for Smart Urban Mobility and new Mobility Concepts to address the environmental footprint and safety of mobility, while fostering economic growth. This includes innovative new tools, services and methods for demand management, moving from restrictive to permissive systems; ICT tools and services for logistics optimised for urban environments; use of ICT for replacing mobility (virtual mobility, telepresence); and new, multi-modal urban mobility concepts
  • c) Coordination and Support Actions
    In the framework of the Intelligent Car initiative: research agendas, dissemination of results (user awareness campaigns), assessments of socio-economic impact and training.
  • d) International cooperation
    In accordance with the specific cooperation agreements with Japan and the USA, active exchange of information will be fostered through the creation of bilateral task force(s) and regular workshops which will establish a mechanism for mutual validation and exploitation of programme results, e.g. methodologies, draft specifications and standards, and for accessing Field Operational Tests datasets.

Expected impact

  • Improved safety, efficiency and competitiveness of transport systems across Europe, towards the objective of reducing fatalities within the EU.
  • Optimised mobility of people and goods in urban environments across different transport modes, through the provision of accessible and reliable logistics information services.
  • Improved quality of life in urban environments, through the provision of innovative demand management and traffic control and management systems, as well as new mobility concepts which meet the increased demand, support economic growth, are environmentally sustainable and capable of accommodating future uncertainties and shocks.
  • Wider uptake of intelligent vehicle systems and co-operative systems through proof-of-concept to all stakeholders in Field Operational Tests.
  • Increased European research excellence by fostering closer cooperation with leading international partners.
