European projects

Here you can find an overview of the ongoing and closed EU funded road safety projects. In the vast majority FERSI members are/were involved as partners.



ADAS&Me considers automated driving in conjunction with information on driver state such as fatigue/drowsiness, stress, inattention and impairing emotions. The work is based around 7 Use Cases aiming to cover a large number of critical driving scenarios. Start: September 2016 – Duration: 42 months


LEVITATE is involved with a driverless future. It will look at how cities, towns, regional authorities and national governments can use technology, and create new systems to accommodate the forecast growth of driverless cars, buses, taxis and pods, as well as autonomous freight and logistics. Start: December 2018 – Duration: 36 months


MeBeSafe works on the development and testing of solutions to nudge car drivers and cyclists towards safer behaviour in common traffic situations that carry an elevated risk. The project will also compare different ways of coaching.
Start: May 2017 – Duration: 42 months


MEDIATOR will develop an instrument that checks in real-time whether the control of the vehicle can be better with the driver or with one of the autonomous systems. The system will also ensure that the transfer of the control takes place on time and safely.
Start: May 2019 – Duration: 48 months


The project RADAR will implement learning and transnational cooperation activities to help the relevant organisations in the Danube area to identify risk on their road networks and help them reduce risk systematically by improving road infrastructure and roads’ layout.
Start: June 2018 – Duration 36 months


The overall objective of SaferAfrica is to create favourable conditions and opportunities for the effective implementation of actions for road safety and traffic management in African countries by setting up a Dialogue Platform between Africa and Europe. Start: October 2016 – Duration: 36 months


VIRTUAL will provide models, tools and protocols for virtual crash testing (VT) in road safety. As compared to physical crash tests, VT allows a far wider range of occupant specific characteristics, including factors such as age or size. Start: June 2018 – Duration: 48 months
