2nd IN-SAFETY workshop
"Towards a forgiving and self-explanatory Europe"
24 October 2007, Brussels

The overriding objective of the workshop is to gather the views of the audience on the near-final results of the IN-SAFETY project. The project outputs that will be presented include:
  • Cooperative pilots and new ideas – this will provide an overview of the pilot tests undertaken in a real traffic environment in Athens, Turin and Stuttgart and in a driving simulator in Sweden. The applications tested were derived from the 6 scenarios.
  • Application guidelines & policy recommendations – this will give an overview of the work undertaken to support the transfer of preliminary results into real world environments. Priority implementation scenarios regarding new technological applications for road safety improvements will be presented and remaining open questions for further research addressed.

IN-SAFETY Workshop & Operators Training Symposium
took place on 6 - 7 April 2006, InterTraffic, Amsterdam

The following issues had been discussed:
  • potential cooperative solutions (vehicle-infrastructure) to improve road safety,
  • strategies for implementing specific driver assistance systems which mitigate driver error ('forgiving roads'),
  • strategies for implementing road signing to enhance driver understanding of roads and to minimise driver information overload ('self-explaining roads'),
  • new models, tools and guidelines for road safety assessment

First newsletter published in September 2005
Over 42,000 road users are killed in European Union (EU) countries annually and around 3.5 million are injured, when under-reporting is taken into consideration. This accounts for an annual cost of over 160 billion Euros and untold pain and suffering of the victims and their relatives.
