eSafety Regional Observers join together in Czech Republic to highlight progress
Creation date: 11 July 2007
Key road safety players from Central Europe (Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland) met in Brno, Czech Republic 12 June 2007 to discuss actions regarding how intelligent safety systems for cars (eSafety systems) can help reduce the number of fatalities and injuries on Europe’s roads.
Organised by the eSafety Support project and with the support of the CDV – Transport Research Centre, Czech Ministry of Transport, AŽD Praha, SDT CR and BVV, the Regional Observers meeting aimed to review how eSafety players in Central Europe can cooperate and share experiences to increase awareness of eSafety systems such as emergency call (eCall).
With over 40 participants from Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland attending, the meeting featured presentations by the European Commission and national eSafety Support experts, providing a useful summary of the eSafety initiative and its achievements to date at both the European and national levels. Topics discussed included enforcement, emergency assistance, RDS-TMC and traffic information, and eCall. The eSafety initiative, launched in 2002, is dedicated to halving the number of road deaths in Europe by 2010 through the development and deployment of eSafety systems.
