Satellite Application For Emergency handling, Traffic alerts, Road safety and Incident Prevention

Objective

SafeTRIP project’s general objective is to improve the use of road transport infrastructures and to improve the alert chain (information / prevention / intervention) in case of incidents by offering an integrated system from data collection to transport safety service provision. SafeTRIP directly contributes to the achievement of the EC objectives regarding road transport safety, road mortality reduction and environment protection.
SafeTRIP benefits from a new satellite technology: the S-band supported by the W2A satellite that was launched in April 2009. Opening new perspectives for European telecommunications, the S-band transmitter is optimized for content delivery and two-way communications for on-board vehicles units interoperable with Galileo and UMTS systems.

This new satellite technology gives the opportunity to progress beyond the state of art allowing communicating in both directions with mobile units (down link and up link). It presents determinant advantages, including global and full coverage on the European scale, multicast data transmission, quick and easy deployment, ecologic energy as the satellite operates through solar panels.
Low price on-board-units (GREENBOX receiver) will be installed in vehicles to provide personalised services: emergency calls and messages, traffic alerts, incident / accident warning, speed alert, floating car data, vehicle monitoring, vehicle tracking and tracing, eco driving monitoring, driver behaviour monitoring, etc.

These customer-oriented applications dedicated to cars drivers & passengers, buses / coaches drivers & passengers and road operators will be tested in the field, by French and Spanish road operators and road users.

SafeTRIP is probably one of the most innovative projects of the last decades due to its holistic approach integrating: infrastructure / vehicle / drivers. Within the SafeTRIP consortium, transportation actors and services providers will work together to predict road conditions and to reinforce the safety chain, both at local and global levels.
