European Commission stand at 2006 ITS World Congress a great success
Creation date: 10 October 2006
Cutting edge eSafety systems were on display at the 13th World Congress and Exhibition on Intelligent Transport Systems which took place in London on 8 – 12 October.
The European Commission’s stand was a great success, with examples of both ongoing research activities and numerous research results from projects such as AIDE, EASIS, GST, PReVENT, HUMANIST and eSafety Support. A separate "car corner" with five demonstration cars complemented the main stand.
On show at the EC stand was a Volvo truck simulator, showcasing technologies such as Active Lane Keeping Support, Collision Mitigation by Braking, Curve Speed Warning and Lane Change Assistance.
The in-vehicle emergency call, eCall, was also demonstrated. Generated either manually by a vehicle occupant or automatically via activation of in-vehicle sensors, an eCall will establish voice contact with the nearest emergency centre and automatically transmit a minimum set of data about the accident. Demonstrated in one of the Sussex police’s car, visitors got a view of how the system can help ensure a faster and better informed response to accidents.
The EC stand attracted a record number numerous of visitors, giving delegates the opportunity to engage in interesting discussions on ongoing EC projects and future activities in the area of Information and Communication Technology for transport under the 7th Framework Programme for Research.
