Successful launch of the i2010 Intelligent Car Initiative
Creation date: 27 February 2006
Viviane Reding, EU Commissioner for Information Society and Media, hosted a very successful event on 23 February in the Brussels Autoworld Museum featuring demonstrations of car safety systems that can support the driver in critical situations. The event received huge media attention and features were broadcasted by TV stations all over Europe.
Safer and cleaner intelligent car technologies are ready for full market deployment. This event featured 28 vehicles that demonstrated the progress made by European research in this field.
The buffet at the event was sponsored by ACEA, CLEPA, ERTICO & FIA. More than 250 participants enjoyed the catering.
The i2010 Intelligent Car Initiative builds on three pillars: the work done in the framework of the eSafety initiative, the results of "ICT for road safety" research projects, co-financed by the European Union over more than the past decade, and activities raising the awareness of road users of Intelligent Vehicle Safety Systems with the aim to speed up the take-up and deployment of such systems.
The launching event in the Autoworld Museum was the first concrete action under the pillar of awareness-raising activities.
