DG CONNECT’s ICT for Mobility programme aims to improve the safety, reliability and environmental performance of Europe’s transport systems through the integration of ICT solutions.

 

Outputs will include support for projects including eCall; an automated system in cars that will transmit key information to the emergency services in the event of a crash, automated driving, and cooperative intelligent transport systems. In combination these projects look to reduce casualties from road traffic collisions, reduce green house gas emissions and reduce congestion in the transport network, whilst improving reliability.

 

Join us for a breakfast with Paul Timmers, who will be discussing the project and the opportunities it presents for companies across Europe.
