Efficiency of transport is a prerequisite for the economy and human activities. It has to be sustainable with regard to ecology and quality of life. ADASE II investigates the future path for active safety with advanced transport systems. Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) are concepts to improve transport safety, efficiency and comfort without additional loads on resources (energy and land use) or on environment and quality of life.
The main objectives of ADASE II are to use the state-of-the-art knowledge to generate corresponding road maps and guidance, to facilitate the information exchange within the cluster of projects related to ADA systems and transport, to organise in-depth expert workshops on selected topics and to disseminate the resulting findings and information to all relevant users and user groups and the general public.
The preparation of the market introduction of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) requires a holistic process and therefore all major players in the ADASE 2 environment have been involved. The working structure of ADASE 2 has been established as a thematic project network. Five workshops on the key areas of importance in the deployment of ADAS were organised together with transport authorities, road providers, E&S industry and automotive industry.
