01 July 2014

The Second interest group meeting of the VRUITS project – Improving the Safety and Mobility of Vulnerable Road Users through ITS Application – took place in Helsinki as a fringe of the ITS Europe Conference on the 16th of June. Experts both from local authorities and manufacturers were called upon to select applications for the quantitative assessment phase of the project as the workshop also displayed of the results of the qualitative assessment of each of the 21 ITS applications

The project has identified a set of applications which have a high potential benefit on improving safety and mobility of Vulnerable Road Users, and performed a first qualitative assessment on the safety and mobility impact of the services. With a user friendly and appealing design, the results of the qualitative assessment for each of the 21 ITS applications identified were presented at the 16th of June workshop. The one page format of a poster outlining the results of the qualitative impact assessment for each of the ITS applications provides a very good accessible overview of the benefits and drawback for each of these applications. The posters presenting the qualitative assessment are available on the VRUITS website by clicking here: posters VRUITS ITS applications.

Furthermore, the workshop was the beginning of a process to select a reduced number out of these 21 applications for further assessment that will be more comprehensive and have a stronger quantitative element. Local authorities are invited to fill in the survey on the applications to help select the most relevant ones for further assessment by clickiing here.

In the area of safety for Vulnerable Road Users, the VRUITS project brings an original light by linking the issue to ITS applications in particular. For further information on the VRUITS project, please visit the website or contact Cleo Davies: cdavies@polisnetwork.eu
