From collaborative research projects to market deployment: 12 success stories
The European Framework Programmes have been important mechanisms to achieve European transport policy goals related to mobility, energy efficiency, safety, emission reduction, economic growth and competitiveness. Thousands of projects have been carried out with funding from European programmes. A major target of co-funded RTD projects is the creation of technologies, methodologies and processes, and their implementation as successful innovations. The added value and benefit of the European Commission’s financial support is tremendous, though impossible to quantify. This collection of factsheets gives a snapshot of European road transport innovations using 12 success stories that represent the wide range of RTD in this sector carried out in collaborative projects. This report has been produced by the FP7 project “FOSTER-ROAD - Future Surface Road Transport Research”, the support action for the European Technology Platform ERTRAC. Factsheet topics include: Advanced Driver Assistance Systems, Automotive Micro Electro Mechanical System Sensors, Crash Test Dummies, Bridge Weigh-in-Motion technology, Diesel Exhaust Aftertreatment, Integrated Fare Management, and Ultra High Performance Fibre Reinforced Concrete.
