IN-SAFETY was a programme to improve road safety. It focused on good management of preventive measures against risks, identifying cost effective intervention for improved road safety.
The project was funded by the European Commission's FP6-SUSTDEV-3 - Global Change and Ecosystems programme. It ran from January 2005 to December 2007.
The IN-SAFETY project viewed policy measures as a way of carrying out the systems' complete assessment.
Indeed, in-depth analysis and field operational testing are needed to answer open questions regarding ITS systems. However, deriving from the enormous cost for such efforts, the samples are normally rather small and extrapolation to whole of the European fleet and driver population is rather imprecise. As a consequence, the improvement of official national traffic accident records should be supported and international databases should be extended accordingly. Furthermore IN-SAFETY shows the potential of simulation and model based analysis to reduce costs for evaluation and decision process.
