The European Commission, DG XIII, has published a brochure on the TELAID project for telematic application for the integration of drivers with special needs. TELAID is managed by a consortium of representative organizations from Germany, Greece, Italy, Sweden, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. It is supported under the Advanced Transport Telematics (DRIVE II) programme of the Third Framework Programme for research and technological development and demonstration (1991-1994). The objective of DRIVE II was to contribute to the development of integrated trans-European services in the field of transport using advanced information technologies and communications to improve transport safety and efficiency. The main goal of the TELAID project is to apply a user-oriented approach in proposing "integrated solutions", design guidelines and draft regulations for drivers with special needs using modern technology and advanced transport telematics. The brochure outlines a number of the projects, such as a disabled driver viewing system, where drivers with special needs can use a simulator which allows the examination and definition of driving practices.
