The ITS European Congress in only 2 weeks away and there are already plenty of SAFE STRIP activities to note down! The congress is taking place from 3-6 June 2019 in Brainport, the Netherlands. For the full congress programme click here.


Whole week – Mon 3 June – Thu 6 June 2019 – ERTICO booth Ring 2 Stand 2.1 (Exhibition Area)

This year we will showcase the SAFE STRIP static strip at our booth. This is a unique opportunity to see the strip in detail with video explanations of the parts.

SP1936 – A Cooperative Intersection Support Application enabled by SAFE STRIP Technology both for C-ITS equipped, non-equipped and autonomous vehicles
Gianmarco Valenti, University of Trento, Italy

This paper extends a cooperative intersection support system which exploits the concept of mirroring in cognitive science to perform inference of intention and here boosted with additional and more accurate information on intersection scenario provided by the infrastructure. Design principles and the implementation of the algorithms are presented. Several novelties are introduced, among which path planning with human-like trajectories, multiple vehicles intersections and the right of way management. The agent introduced is scalable and general and can be used to generate the manoeuvres for autonomous agents and warnings within driver assistance systems. Simulation results are presented in both those frameworks, autonomous intersection management and driver assistance scenario (warning system).

Special Interest Session

Future of safe and smart infrastructure*
Wednesday 5 April , 16:00 – 17:00, Neptune Room

Despite the recent advances in technology, the number of casualties and infrastructure failures still remains too high. Three related research initiatives are currently working towards a common goal of increased safety and optimized management on road, rail and inland waterway networks. Topics include the use of smart nano- and micro sensors, communication and harvesting modules mounted into easy-to-install and –remove low cost on road units, new approaches to make railway level crossings safer and a safety framework to support optimised decision-making with regard to the management of transport infrastructure assets.
