Road transport

Road transport research covers vehicles operating on motorways, asphalt and gravel roads, and associated infrastructure including bridges, cuttings, tunnels, parking areas and footways. Ground transport in ports and airports directly associated with air, maritime and inland waterway transport is not included. Non-motorised modes, such as walking and cycling, are included because these forms of transport largely share the same infrastructure.

Autonomous Vehicles: What impact on European cities?

UITP is organising a conference on “Autonomous vehicles: what impact on European cities?” in the morning of 25 January 2018 in Brussels. The objective of the event is to tackle the most important questions around the effect autonomous road vehicles will have on cities and on public transport.


TRIP Research Theme Analysis Report - Transport Safety

The  purpose  of  this  Research  Theme  Analysis  Report  is  to provide an overview of research performed (mostly) in the EU, providing a view across many projects that fall under the theme title. It provides a robust and thorough assessment of the reported results from the projects and offers perspectives from scientific and policy points of view. The Report was produced under the Transport Research & Innovation Portal (TRIP) continuation project for the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE).
