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

Italy Test Site (I)

In this test site both vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure solutions have been evaluated. The location was equipped with existing infrastructure specific for fog critical road segments, and has been completed with SAFESPOT specific infrastructure.
Due to the great range of vehicles, locations and considering that all applications will be tested, the Italian test site is the largest one and is expected to provide results for the whole project.
