Strong presence of IP PReVENT at the ITS in Europe Congress in Hannover

The 5th European Congress and Exhibition on ITS held 1-3 June 2005 in Hannover, Germany, featured a strong presence from  IP PReVENT, including participation in the Congress programme, at the Exhibition, as well as on the ADAC test track.


IP PReVENT promoted the European Commision DG Information Society initiatives at the EC stand, along with many other EC DG INFSO projects such as AIDE, GST and EASIS. The IP PReVENT part of the stand displayed a Mercedes S class vehicle equipped with state-of-the-art active safety sensors such as 77GHz sensor (Distronic) and pre-crash and braking assistance functionalities. The vehicle also showed a simulation of a short-range communication system, which allows it to get data relative to traffic and local dangers in the area. In addition, a slide show presented IP PReVENT activities and some first results.

On the first day, the EC PReVENT booth received the official visit of Dr Manfred Stolpe, German Federal Minister of Transport, Building and Housing. Mr Matthias Schulze, IP PReVENT coordinator, presented to the offical delegation the PReVENT project and its main activities and goals.  Minister Stolpe saluted the European-wide initiative to contribute to the reduction of the fatalities on the road through the use of ITS technologies and, in this case, active safety systems.


At the ADAC test track, an APALACI vehicle demonstrated the functionalities of pre-fire and pre-crash. The vehicle was equipped with four ultrasonic sensors and four short-range radars and could fuse the data in order to create reliable data enabling the passive safety systems to prepare for the impact. 


IP PReVENT partners contributed to the Congress programme with a Special Session on preventive and active safety that presented project results during the first 15 months of activities. Mr Fabrizio Minarini of DG INFSO, Project Officer of IP PReVENT, served as moderator. 


The following presentations provided a basis for further discussions related to IP PReVENT activities and the use of new technologies for improving active and preventive safety applications.

  • “IP PReVENT - Preventive and Active Safety Applications to improve traffic safety” - Matthias Schulze, PReVENT IP coordinator and Senior Manager at DaimlerChrysler Research. This presentation introduced the aims of IP PReVENT its approach for improving traffic safety.
