1 1 Towards a comprehensive eSafety Action Plan for improving road safety in Europe Erkki Liikanen 25 April 2002

2 2 Safety: The Challenge The European motor vehicle industry has to meet increasing demands concerning emissions and road safety The European motor vehicle industry has to meet increasing demands concerning emissions and road safety The rapid technological progress is an additional challenge, but also offers a great opportunity The rapid technological progress is an additional challenge, but also offers a great opportunity

3 3 Safety: Additional measures are urgently required The European Commission and Member States have been promoting measures to improve road safety through both The European Commission and Member States have been promoting measures to improve road safety through both accident prevention and accident prevention and injury reduction. injury reduction. The number of road victims is still unacceptably high in Europe The number of road victims is still unacceptably high in Europe

4 4 Source: : CARE 2000: OECD / IRTAD * no data available for Greece; number added for Greece is estimated on the basis of * Each year road victims in Europe

5 Source: : CARE Number of road accidents involving personal injury still growing

6 6 The goal: 50% reduction in fatalities Goal: Commission White Paper Goal: Commission White Paper on the European Transport Policy on the European Transport Policy The ambitious goal set in the The ambitious goal set in the White Paper is to halve White Paper is to halve the number of deaths by 2010 the number of deaths by 2010 Conventional solutions like Conventional solutions like Passive safety close to the limits Passive safety close to the limits New technologies if widely take New technologies if widely take into use offer the solution: into use offer the solution: eSafety eSafety

7 7 Integrated Approach to Safety Source: ADASE II

8 8 The Human: A significant safety risk The Human: A significant safety risk 95% of all road accidents involve some form of human error 95% of all road accidents involve some form of human error in 75% of the cases the human is solely to blame in 75% of the cases the human is solely to blame Direct causes include misjudging, driving dynamics, weather and distraction Direct causes include misjudging, driving dynamics, weather and distraction Underlying causes include alcohol, inexperience, tiredness Underlying causes include alcohol, inexperience, tiredness

10 10 Important gap between development and deployment The technology is in some cases developed, but there is an important gap between the technology development and deployment on the markets at reasonable cost The technology is in some cases developed, but there is an important gap between the technology development and deployment on the markets at reasonable cost We have to assess the potential impact of these technologies, set priorities, and foster large-scale deployment We have to assess the potential impact of these technologies, set priorities, and foster large-scale deployment Support actions needed in the legislative framework, certification and standardisation Support actions needed in the legislative framework, certification and standardisation

11 11 Towards a comprehensive eSafety Action Plan (1) eSafety is a joint responsibility for industry, the Commission, other European institutions and the Member States. eSafety is a joint responsibility for industry, the Commission, other European institutions and the Member States. Industry and organisations like ACEA, Eucar, FIA, Ertico are developing a vision and a Road Map. Industry and organisations like ACEA, Eucar, FIA, Ertico are developing a vision and a Road Map. The Commission is ready to take necessary actions to advance rapid deployment and remove obstacles. The Commission is ready to take necessary actions to advance rapid deployment and remove obstacles.

12 12 Towards a comprehensive eSafety Action Plan (2) The Commission is preparing a Communication on the Intelligent Vehicle and Road Safety. The Commission is preparing a Communication on the Intelligent Vehicle and Road Safety. This will include a comprehensive eSafety Action Plan with actions for the Commission, and recommendations for the Member States and the industry. This will include a comprehensive eSafety Action Plan with actions for the Commission, and recommendations for the Member States and the industry. The Member States should share the responsibility (e.g. investments into safety- related road infrastructure. The Member States should share the responsibility (e.g. investments into safety- related road infrastructure. International collaboration in necessary in RTD, standardisation and impact assessment. International collaboration in necessary in RTD, standardisation and impact assessment.

13 13 RTD: Building on the success of Telematics and IST programmes The 5th FP Mobility and Intelligent Infrastructure Cluster - 40 projects, 137 M total/90M EU funding - Intelligent Traffic Control and Management - GNSS systems, services and applications Intelligent Vehicle Cluster - 40 projects, 150 M total/80 M EU funding - Integrated Advanced Driver Assistance Systems Systems - Common Platforms and Technologies The 6th Framework Programme : New opportunities

14 14 Needed: eSafety Road Map Fault-tolerant architecture Anti-collision Sensor fusion Collision Warning Standard Architecture for Safety

15 15 Commitment for the next steps We should: make the commitment to work together to promote eSafety, to prepare the eSafety Action Plan and Road map, and to set up the necessary management structures. make the commitment to work together to promote eSafety, to prepare the eSafety Action Plan and Road map, and to set up the necessary management structures. continue the dialogue in these High Level Meetings. continue the dialogue in these High Level Meetings. set up a Working Group which will prepare the future HL meetings and gives it support in preparing the Action Plan. set up a Working Group which will prepare the future HL meetings and gives it support in preparing the Action Plan. prepare for the RTD component under FP6. prepare for the RTD component under FP6.
