The Sustainable Transport and Mobility Programme (TDM) is the evolution of the Land Transport Development Programme from 2011 (TTD). The programme changed its name in 2012, since then it covers not only the development of all land transports but also air fields and naval topics. The precursor of
The GRRT was set up officially in 1983 to develop research and automated systems in transport. Its aim is to stimulate co-operation between the universities of Lille and Valenciennes, the Institute of transport research (Institut de recherche sur les transports) and the public organisation of
The Research and Innovative Technology Administration (RITA) coordinates the U.S. Department of Transportation's (DOT) research programmes and is charged with advancing the deployment of cross-cutting technologies to improve the Nation’s transportation system.

IERSET was a co-operative research institute created by companies and research centres to develop research and activities around one theme: communication systems and on-board systems for different means of transport. In 2006, IERSET merged with an association called ADERMIP. The result is a new
For the last 30 years, mobility and transport have increased significantly. Regarding safety, significant improvements have been made in past years, as the scope for improvement was great. Today, this scope is very narrow and traffic continues to increase whilst social pressure for road safety is
Freight transport continues to increase and raises numerous questions on future congestion, accident blackspots, environmental effects, etc. Following results from the preceding Predit 2 programme and the European White Paper on Transport, in order to properly tackle this problem, transport policy
The use of new information and communication systems in land transport will play an important role in several fields: safety, environment, traffic management, traveller information, etc. New devices/tools based on these systems can be developed, such as guided brakes, GPS driving assistance, etc.
In the next 20 years, the organisation of transport will be subject to major changes. For this reason, public authorities and professional actors are thinking together on these transformations and on answers developed in Europe and throughout the world. The vocation of this theme was to supply a
