European projects

CORDIS (Community Research & Development Information Service) is an information space devoted to European research and development and innovation activities.

VOICE is an ETSC activity with the principle aim to raise awareness of the needs of vulnerable road users in such a way that the responsibility for the implementation of the measures necessary for the protection of cyclists and pedestrians is more readily acknowledged.


AIDE is part of the EUCAR Integrated Safety Programme, the AIDE Integrated Project plans to design, develop and validate a generic Adaptive Integrated Driver-vehicle Interface (AIDE) that maximises the efficiency of individual and combined advanced driver assistance systems, reduces the level of workload and distraction and enables the potential benefits of new in-vehicle technologies and nomad devices


The APROSYS Integrated Project (IP) develops and introduces critical technologies that improve passive safety for all European road users for priority accident types and levels of crash severity. The field of passive safety concerns in particular human injury biomechanics, vehicle crashworthiness and protection systems. APROSYS is mobilizing and integrating the European scientific & technological expertise for the development of new technologies for the protection of road users in all relevant accident conditions.


Within the 6th Framework Programm the Supportive Action COMeSafety started its work on 1 January 2006. The project supports the COMeSafety Forum with respect to all issues related to vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications as the basis for cooperative intelligent road transport systems.


CVIS will allow vehicles to cooperate directly with other nearby vehicles, and with the immediate roadside infrastructure, thus sharing information on incidents, road hazards and the latest traffic information for greater safety, efficiency and a better environment. Each equipped vehicle will be able to connect and communicate via local ad hoc networks of vehicles and roadside equipment in the vicinity as well as via an always-on network connection for accessing a wide range of journey support and other services


Stand alone safety systems must be integrated - combined with upcoming enhanced telematics services - into a complete network of so-called Integrated Safety Systems. For the realization of Integrated Safety Systems, powerful and highly dependable in-vehicle electronic architecture and appropriate development support are necessary. The goal of the EASIS project is to define and develop these enabling technologies


GOOD ROUTE aims to develop a cooperative system for dangerous goods vehicles routing, monitoring, re-routing (in case of need), enforcement and driver support, based upon dynamic, real time date, in order to minimise the Societal Risks related to their movements, whereas still generating the most cost efficient solution for all actors involved in their logistic chain.


GST is an EU-funded Integrated Project that is creating an open and standardized end-to-end architecture for automotive telematics services. The purpose of GST is to create an environment in which innovative telematics services can be developed and delivered cost-effectively, and hence to increase the range of economic telematics services available to manufacturers and consumers.


The aim of the Network of Excellence HUMANIST is to federate the researches in the domain of user/system interactions and their applications on road telematics and driver assistance systems and to create a European Virtual Centre of Excellence on HUMAN centred design for Information Society Technologies applied to road transport.


PReVENT is a European automotive industry activity co-funded by the European Commission to contribute to road safety by developing and demonstrating preventive safety applications and technologies. Preventive safety applications help drivers to avoid or mitigate an accident through the use of in-vehicle systems which sense the nature and significance of the danger, while taking the driver's state into account.


SAFESPOT is an integrated research project co-funded by the European Commission Information Society Technologies among the initiatives of the 6th Framework Program. The objective is to understand how intelligent vehicles and intelligent roads can cooperate to produce a breakthrough for road safety. The aim is to prevent road accidents developing a Safety Margin Assistant that detects in advance potentially dangerous situations and that extends in space and time driversĀ“ awareness of the surrounding environment.


SeVeCom is an EU-funded project that focuses on providing a full definition and implementation of security requirements for vehicular communications. The Sevecom vision is that future vehicular commmunication and inter-vehicular commmunication infrastructures will be widely deployed in order to bring the promise of improved road safety and optimised road traffic.


The main objective of SIM is to develop an innovative vehicle with new active, preventive and passive safety devices that will result in the decreasing of the number of powered two-wheelers (PTWs) accidents and related consequences for PTW riders (injuries and deaths).
