Abstract

The report describes the DRIVE work done to prepare the basis for European standards for the development of safe RTI systems, with their promotion via the certification authority. The philosophy behind the methods proposed for system development, electronic hardware, and software aspects, together with their certification is discussed. Three main areas in the problem of road traffic safety are identified by a Safety Task Force of DRIVE 1 projects: systems safety, man machine interaction and traffic safety; the project recognises and addresses the problem that most of the mainly random or systematic failures occurring in a road transport situation are caused by human error.
