On 28 March the European Commission published preliminary figures on road fatalities for 2021. An estimated 19 800 people were killed in road crashes last year. This was an increase of 1 000 deaths (+5%) on 2020, but still represents almost 3 000 (-13%) fewer fatalities compared to the pre-pandemic
Smart mobility systems and services and transport electrification have the potential to contribute to transport decarbonisation. Policy and innovation efforts have to focus on integrated transport strategies as part of wider smart and sustainable city strategies. They should take into consideration
Inspired by technological developments on connected mobility, this project aims to contribute to the EU priority “A Europe fit for the digital age” by exploring synergies between connected vehicles and smart infrastructure components for the fast and mobile assessment of the existing bridge stock.
This report provides a comprehensive analysis of research and innovation (R&I) in vehicle design and manufacturing in selected European Union (EU) funded projects from 2007 onwards. It identifies relevant researched technologies by transport mode and their phase of development. The results show that
Electrification has a major role to play in decarbonising transport and in reducing its fossil fuel dependency. For transport electrification to be cost-efficient and ready for future needs, adequate research and innovation (R&I) in this field is necessary. This report provides a comprehensive
Within the TRIMIS framework, horizon scanning is applied through a structured and systematic collaborative exercise that contributes to the identification of new and emerging transport-related technologies and trends, with a potential future impact on the transport sector. Furthermore, it supports
The objective of this report is to provide comprehensive and exhaustive information on the development of alternative fuels transport systems in the EU and market projections for the horizons 2020, 2030 and beyond, as well as to assess the progress in the context of the objectives for
This report provides a comprehensive analysis of research and innovation in alternative fuels in selected European Union (EU) funded projects from 2007 onwards. It identifies relevant researched technologies by fuel type and their phase of development.
New mobility and transport services and systems are being created due to developments in ICT-enabled web, mobile and big data applications. Traditional automotive, public and private transport models are being challenged as new players emerge with disruptive services; blurring traditional
