Final Report - SAFEWAY2SCHOOL (Integrated system for safe transportation of children to school)

Project ID: 233967
Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT

Abstract

This is the final report - deliverable 10.5 for the SAFEWAY2SCHOOL project which received funding under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). AFEWAY2SCHOOL aimed to design, develop, integrate and evaluate technologies for providing a holistic and safe transportation service for children, from their door to the school door and vice versa, encompassing tools, services and training for all key actors in the chain.

The project has a user oriented approach and on-site test has been done in Italy, Sweden, Poland and Austria, but also a simulator experiment in Germany. All developed tools and technologies have been evaluated. The results are positive, showing cost effective solutions with high acceptance for the holistic approach but also for most of the subsystems behind. However, based on a very extensive work to identify future work with standardisations and policy the most essential improvements identified were related to school travel plans, sign at all bus stops and improved driver education.

Chapter one includes the project context and objectives, chapter two the main scientific and technological results. Furthermore, the third chapter covers the potential impact whereas the fourth chapter covers the dissemination activities. Finally, the last chapter includes some conclusion notes.
