SAFE Highways of the Future 2005
30 - 31 May 2005
Participation of the IP PReVent coordinator, and the IP PReVENT subprojects MAPS&ADAS, LATERAL SAFE and SAFELANE
This event is an intensive two-day summit covering the technologies, methods and potential for reducing highway fatalities, organised by UKiP Media & Events and Traffic Technology International magazine. Topics to be covered during the conference include:
- Strategies for safer highways
- Improving infrastructure/saving lives
- The safe vehicle of the future
- Incident detection, tunnel safety and advanced warning systems
- Driver assistance systems
- Simulations and virtual reality systems
- Automated highways and the keys to the safe highway of the future.
IP PReVENT presentations:
Day one: 11.00-11.25 PReVENT: an overview
Matthias Schulze, DaimlerChrysler, Germany and project co-ordinator, PReVENT
The Integrated Project 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.
Day one: 14.25-14.50 PReVENT IP concept on lateral support - LATERAL SAFE and SAFELANE approaches
Dr Angelos Amditis, Research Associate Professor, National Technical University of Athens
PReVENT IP subprojects SAFELANE and LATERAL SAFE aim at providing an integrated driver support system for handling critical lateral support situations in all traffic scenarios. The objectives of SAFELANE are the development of a next generation of adaptive lane keeping support system and a model based decision component that processes sensor data for situation understanding and decision strategies.
Day two: 11.50-12.15 MAPS&ADAS
Vincent Blervaque, ERTICO, Belgium
The three-year subproject MAPS&ADAS, part of the PReVENT Inte-grated Project (FP6, EC DG INFSO), is developing, testing and validating a standard interface to
provide different ADAS applications access to map and vehicle positioning data, as well as a standard method for the collection, maintenance, certification and pro-vision of safety related content for in-vehicle map databases. Furthermore, relevant business and organisational models will be explored to enable the provision of ADAS maps.
