What is the European Commission’s perception of the safety situation on European roads? What is European R&I contributing to make our roads safer? Which safety research is needed in the coming years to overcome the challenges ahead of us and cover remaining “white spots”? How can a good coverage of road safety R&I needs be ensured in Horizon Europe? These are just some of the questions that will be discussed at this Road Safety Workshop, organised by the Working Group Road Transport Safety & Security of ERTRAC, the European Road Transport Research Advisory Council.
To push the business-oriented development of the Trans-European/Trans-Eurasian Railway Network, particularly for freight (bottlenecks solving and FERRMED Recommendations/Standards of Reference implementation, including high capacity intelligent trains & terminals, digitalisation, data sharing, blockchain and smart inter cities links, in the framework of 5G and Circular Economy) improving the multimodal logistics global chain, in order to facilitate the transfer of road traffic to rail, reduce drastically lead times (door to door), assure ETA accomplishment and strongly decrease the transportation costs.
The Future of Transportation is a world-leading conference on the subject of ‘What Next?’. Our primary theme this year is ‘Do or Die’. That may sound a bit extreme but we either tolerate change and disruption now or face a total crisis in 10-20 years’ time. Cities are already gridlocked; inter-urban motorways and autobahns have miles of queuing trucks and cars; air quality in many cities is already at crisis point. In some instances, the latter in particular, solutions are starting to be realised. However, the broader issues of gridlock and undercapacity in transportation networks are a long way from being remedied.
By providing reliable and accurate positioning for the automotive industry, European GNSS (Galileo and EGNOS) supports innovative applications that are underpinning the smart mobility solutions of the future. The European GNSS Agency (GSA) showcased a number of cutting-edge automotive projects that leverage Galileo’s added accuracy at its stand at this year’s ITS World Congress in Singapore.
A range of automotive safety and liability functions benefit from the enhanced performance provided by Galileo. These include precise navigation systems, autonomous vehicles and assisted driving, cooperative ITS, and usage-based insurance and road pricing schemes, in addition to automated eCall emergency response and intelligent speed adaptation. All of these functions require secure and robust positioning, and this was the focus of many of the projects showcased at the GSA stand.
ESA’s second Global Space Economic Forum (GSEF) will be held on 11 December 2019 during New Space Economy ExpoForum – Fiera Roma.
The GSEF aims to engage leaders and executives of major space and non-space European stakeholders from institutional, academia and commercial sectors to explore potential synergies and take joint action to tackle shared challenges. During the Global Space Economic Forum, ESA – European Space Agency will present some of the industrial collaborations developed during the year in areas such as cybersecurity, autonomous driving, urban innovation and maritime.
This conference provides a platform for networking and developing partnerships between space and other industrial sectors.
EIT Urban Mobility is pleased to welcome you to their Inauguration Event, which will take place on 19 November at the Central Agora of the Smart City Expo World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
This Inauguration Event is a key moment for EIT Urban Mobility as it represents the official start of our Innovation Community and its activities in 2020.
A recently published JRC report jointly prepared by the TIC 2030 group of the European Commission-JRC and by the STI group of the OECD, shed light on the role of these key players in shaping the future of technologies and of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in particular.
