Road safety

Road safety is currently a priority in London as the Mayor’s Transport Strategy sets out the objective of eliminating all deaths and serious injuries on the city’s network by 2041. It is also a challenge for the future with the rise of new mobility modes such as automated vehicles.

EU funded project in the spotlight

CoEXist, allowing roads to be shared between conventional and automated vehicles

Concept: The key idea is to make roads “AV-ready” (automated vehicles ready). For that, tools are developed in order to model traffic with AVs. These models are tested in four European cities.

Local authorities involved: Milton Keynes (UK), Stuttgart (Germany), Gothenburg (Sweden), Helmond (Netherlands)

EU contribution: EUR 3.47 Million (100%)

Timeframe: May 2017 – April 2020

Programme: Horizon 2020
