Final Report - VECTOR (Visualisation of the exposure of cyclists to traffic on roads)

Project ID: 44671
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY

Abstract

This is the final report of the VECTOR project, which aimed at improving cyclists' safety situation by assessing - and particularly, demonstrating - the actual exposure of cyclists to traffic-related fine particles in cities, using a novel tool in environmental monitoring, which combines real-time measurements and video-recording (RTV). The 'real-time visualisations' obtained in this manner clearly demonstrate cyclists' exposure in various traffic situations.

This report presents an outline of the activities carried out in the VECTOR project and the results achieved. Section 1.2 describes the consortium and its aims to connect 'science' to 'society'. Section 1.3 presents a concise overview of the activities carried out, their goals and interrelationships. Section 1.4 presents and (shortly) discusses the results achieved and their expected impact. The actual use and dissemination of the results - a major goal of the project - has been described in a dedicated section, Chapter 2.
