Cross-modal challenges and opportunities in transport safety

Research output: Chapter in Book or Conference ProceedingsConference Proceedings with Oral Presentationpeer-review


This paper presents the safety-related results of the project USE-iT (Users, Safety, Security and Energy in Transport Infrastructure), a Coordination and Support Action funded within the H2020 framework programme, where the aim is to better understand the common challenges facing all transport modes. The project targets aspects of providing better customer information, improving safety and security and reducing energy consumption. To this end, technologies, methodologies and approaches with capabilities to improve transport safety and with cross-modal implementation potential were identified through a comprehensive literature research. Based on three rounds of stakeholders´ consultations, which included workshops, interviews and questionnaires, a set of safety-related challenges along with the opportunities with the highest multi-modal potential to address them, was identified. This work is followed-up by the development of a cross-modal research roadmap with selected opportunities for addressing the identified challenges in the topics of user information, safety, security and energy reduction.
