DRIVE: DEDICATED ROAD INFRASTRUCTURE FOR VEHICLE SAFETY IN EUROPE. IN: PROCEEDINGS OF THE IVTH WORLD CONGRESS OF THE INTERNATIONAL ROAD SAFETY ORGANIZATION, TOKYO, JAPAN, JUNE 5-7, 1990

The DRIVE (Dedicated Road Infrastructure for Vehicle Safety in Europe) programme was adopted for a period of three years in June 1988, and work started in January 1989. Within its framework about 1000 experts from more than 300 European companies are collaborating on 71 projects worth 120 million ecu. DRIVE entails: research, development and assessment of a range of Road Traffic Informatics (RTI) technologies; the evaluation of strategic choices of candidate systems; and a significant amount of standardisation work. The projects are divided into four broad groups: behavioural aspects and traffic safety (14 projects); general approach and modelling (15 projects); traffic control (22 projects); and services telecommunications databases (20 projects). Brief details are given of some of this work. For the covering abstract of some of the papers see IRRD 837529. (Author/TRRL)
