Smart Vehicles on Smart Roads


SAFESPOT is an integrated research project co-funded by the European Commission Information Society Technologies among the initiatives of the 6th Framework Program. The objective is to understand how intelligent vehicles and intelligent roads can cooperate to produce a breakthrough for road safety.


The aim is to prevent road accidents developing a Safety Margin Assistant that detects in advance potentially dangerous situations and that extends in space and time drivers´ awareness of the surrounding environment.


The Safety Margin Assistant will be an Intelligent Cooperative System based on Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) communication.
