IP PReVENT to host major exhibition in September 2007
Creation date: 17 November 2006
The IP PReVENT consortium will host a major exhibition of its work, 13-15 September 2007. The Integrated Project PReVENT (PReVENTive and Active Safety Applications) is developing and demonstrating integrated in-vehicle safety applications using state-of-the art sensors and communication devices. IP PReVENT marks a comprehensive step towards realising the vision of establishing a safety zone around vehicles by means of complementary safety functions.
The September 2007 Exhibition will be held in collaboration with the European Commission’s i2010: Intelligent Car Initiative and will feature more than 25 experimental vehicles demonstrating preventive and active safety applications in all of the IP PReVENT application areas, including:
• Safe Speed and Safe Following
• Lateral Support
• Intersection Safety
• Collision mitigation
The following cross-functional results will also be exhibited:
• Code of Practice for development of ADAS
• ADAS interface and use of safety maps for enhanced ADAS
• Sensor data fusion
• Evaluation of ADAS
The venue for this event will be officially announced at the next IP PReVENT Open Workshop, 6-7 February 2007.
Initial Exhibition highlights
On the opening day of the Exhibition, a press conference will be held in collaboration with the i2010: Intelligent Car Initiative, featuring DG Information Society Commissioner Viviane Reding and high-level officials from IP PReVENT industrial partners.
Day two has been designated the “Expert Day” and will feature technical presentations of all IP PReVENT function fields with full-scale demonstration of the 25 vehicles. Day three is the “Public Day”, which will bring advanced research on active in-vehicle safety to the general public for the first time.
