Press Release: Easing the transition towards automated driving

Automated vehicles will soon be a reality on our roads but their safe integration into a ‘mixed ability’ transport system will require careful attention. EU-funded research is addressing the challenges posed by specific traffic conditions and testing possible solutions.

Projects: Creating trust in driverless cars

The future of driverless cars depends on whether the industry can create reliable systems that make drivers feel safe. That is why an EU-funded project has been applying a human-centric approach to develop software that will reassure people using automated vehicles.

Press Release: Too much information – better ways to manage data

Humanity is generating ever-increasing amounts of data with genome sequencing and internet use, faster than our computers can handle. An EU-funded project is designing storage and analysis solutions which can help optimise transport networks and advance research into diseases and personalised medicine.
