Abstract: ITS Applications have in recent years assisted in reducing the number of fatalities in Europe. Howev-er, Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs) have not benefited as much as car users. The EU-sponsored VRUITS project assesses the safety and mobility impacts of ITS applications for VRUs, assesses the impacts of current and upcoming ITS applications on the safety and mobility of VRUs, identifies how the usability and efficiency of ITS applications can be improved, and recommends which actions have to be taken at a policy level to accelerate deployment of such ITS. This report describes general scenarios for the years 2020 and 2030 providing developments focused on road safety trends over time at the EU-level, as well as mobility and comfort trends of VRUs. Be-sides a thorough market analysis has been performed on existing ITS as well as relevant trends and market penetrations, for the applications, identified in VRUITS D2.1. Information has been collected about the likelihood of applying these systems in future years, through questionnaires sent to public administrations in charge of road infrastructure and manufacturers of ITS systems.
Description: This is an official report.
Sponsor: This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 321586
