3The political framework … towards a ‘single market for research’European Research Area, Eureka, COST, nat’l R&D programmesR&D PolicyLisbon 2000“EU: Largestknowledge-based economy by 2010”Deployment & promotion, i2010Broadband access, e-business, e-government, security, e-health, ...… towards ‘online Europe’Legal & Reg. PolicyEntrepreneurship,benchmarking (innovation scoreboard), R&D investment 3% of GDP by 2010, industrial policy, CARS
4The Political Framework: i2010 (1) A European Information Society for growth and employmenti2010 is a joint effort of the EC, Member States and economic actorsaiming to accelerate the take-up of knowledge society in EuropeIt proposes three principal lines for action:A single European information spaceWill provide mobile access to new content and introduce new advanced services.Strengthening innovation and investment in ICT ResearchThe automotive sector will benefit from bigger investment in RTDAchieving an inclusive European Information SocietyICT offers tools to further improve safety, efficiency and sustainability of the European transport systems.The i2010 communication launches a flagship initiative in the area of safe and clean transport, focusing on INTELLIGENT CAR.
5The Political Framework: i2010 (2) The objective is to improve the quality of the living environment by supporting ICT solutions for safer, smarter and cleaner mobility of people and good.In this context, the Commission proposes to launch a “quality of life” flagship ICT initiative on …Intelligent CarSmarterIntelligent communicationand interaction with otherVehicles and with theTransport infrastructureto improve efficiency andsafety.CleanerImprove traffic managementthrough intelligent driverassistance systems(including Real-TimeTraffic and Travel Information(RTTI) and multi-modality),thus contributing to reductionof polluting emissions.… addressing environmental and safetyissues arising from increased road use.SaferActive ICT-based safety systems and deviceshelping to prevent and mitigate the impactof accidents and to provide better rescue.
6The Political Framework: Road Safety The White Paper on European Transport PolicyRoad Safety Action ProgrammeAdopted in 2003Halving the number of fatalities in EuropeMid-Term Review in September 2005: Stock-taking, further measuresThe eSafety InitiativeThe 1st Safety Communication in 2003: “ICT for Safe and Intelligent Vehicles”The eSafety Forum and its Working Groups2nd eSafety Communication in September 2005
7The eSafety Initiative The eSafety Initiative was launched in 2002 as a joint initiative of the European Commission, industry and other stakeholders.It aims at accelerating the development, deployment and use of Intelligent Integrated Safety Systems that use Information and Communication Technologies (ITC) in intelligent solutions, in order to increase road safety and reduce the number of accidents on Europe's roads.

9The 2nd eSafety Communication Bringing eCall to CitizensAdopted on 14 September, 2005eCall: A key recommendation of the 1st eSafety CommunicationSignificant progress towards the full-scale roll-out of eCallBut: Roll-out can be delayed if the national and regional governments do not invest in the necessary infrastructure for eCall
10The pan-European eCall (1): WHY ? Builds on 112 and E112Reduction of average responsetime to the accident:50% in Rural Areas40% in Urban AreasReduction of accidents severity15% to less severe medical categoryAnnual lives savingEstimated to be up to in EU 25Costs savings(exceed many times needed investments)~ 26 billion Euro in EU 25 annually
13Actions for the Member States The Member States should sign the eCall MoULack of signatures threatens to delay the eCall implementation and weakens the commitment of industryThe Member States should promote 112 and E112the Member States should promote the use of 112 and take steps for accelerating the introduction of location information in their public wireless networksThe Member States should upgrade their PSAPs to handle location-enhanced E112 calls and eCallsThe infrastructure at PSAPs should be in place at the latest at the end of 2007The Member States should provide adequate location-enhanced emergency services and language supportFor maximum benefit, the whole emergency chain should be upgraded
14Moving Towards Co-operative Systems ...A vision for the future:basic functions defined, but technology not availableImproving traffic systems efficiency:Traffic management: data – information - guidanceDeepening of the topicsBasic inputs to Standardisation (GDT, ATT Alert…)Moving to Field trialsServices and Safety SystemsSafety SystemsMoving to Cooperative SystemsIntelligent Transport SystemsIntelligent Transport InfrastructureCooperative SystemsIST 6th FPIST 5th FPTAP 4th FPIST 7th FPDRIVE 2DRIVE 1Prometheus(EUREKA)1987…

At the end of the project an international road show will be organised where the prototypes developed in the IP will be demonstrated and the project results will be publicly presented4 Function fields8 Vertical Subprojects3 Cross-functional activities3 Horizontal Subprojects
17The 6th FP Call 4: Co-operative Systems Co-operative Systems will enhance the support available to drivers and other road users.They will provide for significant improvements:Greater transport efficiencyMaking better use of the capacity of the available infrastructureManaging varying demandsIncreased safety and comfortImproving the quality and reliability of information used by advanced driver assistance systemsAllowing the implementation of advanced safety applications

21ConclusionsA large number of Intelligent Vehicle Safety Systems and Technologies exist or are being developed. But the clear challenge is in deployment:The take-up of new safety systems has been slowA large number of safety technologies are under developmentThe Commission is supporting “smarter vehicles” through eSafety, i2010 and RTD fundingFocus of the eSafety initiative: Deployment, including business models and user awarenessNext: Co-operative Systems with new levels of safety and efficiency and i2010 Intelligent Car
