euroFOT has brought together a comprehensive array of organisations to test intelligent vehicle systems across Europe. Car manufacturers, suppliers, universities, research institutes and others stakeholders – in all 28 organisations are involved. The aim: to make road transport safer, more efficient and more pleasant!
Now, after one year of field testing 8 distinct functions assisting 1200 everyday drivers on European roads across France, Germany, Italy and Sweden in detecting hazards, preventing accidents and making driving more efficient, using a multitude of sensors and devices monitoring every aspect of individual driver behaviour in real-world traffic conditions, the euroFOT consortium has presented its results to 250 participants on the occasion of its Final Event.
A comprehensive programme took participants from the design and methodology, practical considerations and data management through to an in-depth analysis of results and impact and cost benefit assessment.
The opening ceremony featured high level representatives from the European Commission and the euroFOT consortium.

The euroFOT exhibition was inspired by and modelled upon the FESTA methodology, and featured active safety system equipped vehicles and simulators. euroFOT experts were on hand to explain and answer questions, and to explain the different phases of the project.
