    Safecycle Project Presentation Safecycle Project Presentation Presentation Transcript

    • The SAFECYCLE project Introduction to the SAFECYCLE project June 2011SAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE
    • Key facts about SAFECYCLE ■  Start: 1 June 2011 ■  End: 30 November 2012 ■  Co-funded by the European Commission – DG MOVE ■  Partners: Mobycon, University of Hasselt, University of Rome, CDV ■  Objective: Identifying those ICT applications with the best cost-effectiveness concerning road safety for cyclistsSAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 2
    • Some facts about cycle safety ■  Cyclist fatalities reach 6% of all the fatalities in EU countries. In 2005 this amounts to approx. 1200 people for the EU-14. ■  Apart from general factors (e.g. speed and weight of motorised vehicles, lack of protection of cyclists) the main factors for accidents of cyclists are lack of visibility, vehicle control and alcohol consumption. ■  In countries where people cycle a lot, cyclists in general have a lower fatality rate.SAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 3
    • Goals Safecycle ■  To identify e-safety applications that will enhance the safety of cyclists ●  Reduced chance on accidents ●  Reduced impact of accidents ■  To create knowledge and awareness concerning e- safety applications for cycling ■  To speed up the adoption of e-safety applications in cyclingSAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 4
    • Positioning of SAFECYCLE Cycling ICT SAFECYCLE project Road safetySAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 5
    • Activities in the project ■  State of the art overview of e-safety applications for cyclists ■  Identify useful e-safety applications and services, based on SWOT analysis ■  Impact assessment of e-safety applications ■  SAFECYCLE platform for communicating results, awareness and match making between relevant partiesSAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 6
    • Expected impacts ■  Improved safety, efficiency and competitiveness of transport systems ■  Optimized mobility of people in urban environments ■  Improved quality of life in urban environments ■  A wider uptake of intelligent vehicle systems and co- operative systems ■  Increased European research excellenceSAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 7
    • ICT dimensions Four dimensions for ICT and safe cycling: ■  ICT on bicycles ■  ICT in other vehicles ■  ICT in infrastructure ■  ICT on the internetSAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 8
    • European dimension ■  White paper (2011): ”By 2050, move close to zero fatalities in road transport. In line with this goal, the EU aims at halving road casualties by 2020. Make sure that the EU is a world leader in safety and security of transport in all modes of transport.” ■  Bringing together ICT knowledge and cycling knowledge of European countries ■  SAFECYCLE consortium encompasses four European countries with a worldwide cycling and ICT networkSAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 9
    • Project organisationSAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 10
    • WP1 - Project management WP Leader: Mobycon ■  Technical management ■  Administrative managementSAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 11
    • WP2 - State-of-the-art review WP Leader: University of Hasselt - IMOB ■  Current developments e-safety applications ■  Future developments e-safety applications The aim is to find at least 50 e-safety for cycling applications or servicesSAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 12
    • WP3 - SWOT analysis WP Leader: University of Rome - CTL ■  For each e-safety application identify: ●  Strengths ●  Weaknesses ●  Opportunities ●  ThreatsSAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 13
    • WP4 – Impact assessment WP Leader: Mobycon ■  Identify the impact on traffic safety for cyclists ■  Impact assessment will be ●  Qualitatively ●  Quantitatively ■  Focus on direct impacts of the e-safety applications on cyclists. Modal shift aspects will be excluded.SAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 14
    • WP5 - Recommendations WP Leader: CDV ■  Formulation of recommendations focussing on: ●  Standardisation/harmonization ●  Deployment ●  Research agenda and demonstrationsSAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 15
    • WP 6 - DisseminationSAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 16
    • SAFECYCLE dissemination ■  Making use of existing networks ■  SAFECYCLE website ■  SAFECYCLE platform ●  The aim is to have at least 1,000 different contacts through the SAFECYCLE platform ■  SAFECYCLE newsletters and articles ●  The aim is to publish at least 50 articles ■  SAFECYCLE conferenceSAFECYCLE, June 2011 SAFECYCLE is funded by EC – DG MOVE 17
