Final Report - PICAV (Personal Intelligent City Accessible Vehicle System)

Project ID: 233776
Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT

Abstract

This is the final report of the PICAV project which received funding under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7-Transport) which focused on developing an integrated, safer, 'greener' and 'smarter' pan-European transport systems for the benefit of all citizens and society. The PICAV project presents a new mobility concept for passengers ensuring accessibility for all in urban pedestrian environments. The concept addresses a new Personal Intelligent City Accessible Vehicle (PICAV) and a new transport system that integrates a fleet of PICAV units.

The PICAV vehicle ensures accessibility for everybody and some of its features are specifically designed for people whose mobility is restricted for different reasons, particularly (but not only) elderly and disabled people. Ergonomics, comfort, stability, assisted driving, eco-sustainability, parking and mobility dexterity as well as vehicle / infrastructures intelligent networking were the main drivers of PICAV design.

The report immediately dives into the innovative accomplishments of the project, and includes images taken from conferences where the concept was revealed. The report concludes with a flyer that was created to promote the project in the city it was trialed.
