The SAFESPOT Project is co-funded by the European Commission Information Society and Media and supported by EUCAR.



SAFESPOT aims to:

  • Use the infrastructure and the vehicles as sources and destinations of safety-related information and develop an open, flexible and modular architecture and communication platform.
  • Develop the key enabling technologies: ad-hoc dynamic network, accurate relative localisation, dynamic local traffic maps.
  • Develop and test scenario-based applications to evaluate the impacts on road safety.
  • Define a sustainable deployment strategy for cooperative systems for road safety, evaluating also related liability, regulations and standardisation aspects.

The SAFESPOT co-operative system is composed by the following communicating elements:

  • Intelligent vehicles equipped with on board co-operative systems.
  • Intelligent infrastructure including road side units
  • Safety centre(s) and/or Traffic centre(s) that are able to centralize or forward safety information coming from the intelligent vehicle and/or the intelligent infrastructure.
