Final Report - ASSET-ROAD (ASSET Advanced Safety and Driver Support in Essential Road Transport)

Project ID: 217643
Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT

Abstract

Road traffic safety was a key element of the ASSET-ROAD project. Utmost priority was attributed to accident prevention by improved driver awareness and early warning procedures in case of incidents and hazards and control of violations. In other words, the primary goal of ASSET-ROAD was the enhancement of traffic safety, whereby cleaner traffic was a by-product of more fluent traffic flow and enhanced safety. It was to be achieved mainly by the following main objectives:

1. development of sensors and innovative acquisition methods allowing the automated detection of traffic offences and of hazards;
2. development of driver assistance tools;
3. creation of a road safety theory including practical recommendations.

The final report provides a summary description of project context, objectives and main results / foregrounds. It also outlines the potential impact (including the socio-economic impact and the wider societal implications of the project) and the main dissemination activities and exploitation of results.
