2nd IN-SAFETY WORKSHOP - TOWARDS A FORGIVING AND SELF-EXPLANATORY EUROPE

24 October 2007, Brussels

IN-SAFETY project
To achieve forgiving roads in Europe, the EU co-funded IN-SAFETY project has investigated the combination of new technologies with existing infrastructure to improve road safety. Numerous cooperative solutions have been analysed, including in-vehicle speed alerts based on information provided by road-side beacons and cooperative lane-departure warnings, and from these, six scenarios have been selected, elements of which will be tested in real and simulated trials around Europe.

The work on self-explanatory roads has essentially focused on preparing recommendations for harmonised road signing (electronic and static) in a multi-cultural and multi-lingual Europe.

Workshop objectives
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
• Application guidelines & policy recommendations
• Harmonized messages for the Trans European Road Network
• Models for safety analysis
• ITS training tool for road operators
