ERSEC Project final workshop
The ERSEC Final Workshop will take place at Unione Industriale di Torino
Sala Torino, located in Torino (Italy), Via Vincenzo Vela 17.
The participation is free of charge, to register please complete and submit the registration form to the Conference Bureau, by fax (+39 011 4360679) or by e-mail (mailto:info@eicas.it).
The registration deadline is the 25 October 2011.
Although things have gradually improved in recent years, the number of road fatalities is still much too high in the European Union (in 2009, road accidents killed over 30,000 people and injured more than 1.1 million). The new EU road safety guidelines would aim to cut European road deaths by 50% by 2020, what constitutes a serious collective undertaking to reduce the number of deaths rather than a legal requirement.
Nowadays many solutions exist for improving the safety on transport, many of them are already proven and available on the market, others are under development, others are still in phase of study and research. Such solutions span from ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) to collision mitigation and avoidance systems. The analysis of the state-of-art is that nowadays the benefits and advantages offered by EGNOS/GNSS system do not appear yet fully exploited in active safety systems.
The workshop intends to present the research results of the ERSEC "Enhanced Road safety by integrating Egnos-Galileo data with on-board Control system" Project, a two-year project funded by the European Community in the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) context and managed by the GNSS Supervisory Authority (GSA). ERSEC intends to contribute a further step towards the goal to make vehicles safer, by exploiting the benefits and advantages offered by the introduction of EGNOS/GNSS systems.
The main project outcome is presented, consisting in the ERSEC measuring system - to be used on board of vehicles - able to output the position on the road map of the equipped vehicle and of all the obstacles (such as other vehicles, peoples and any kind of fixed or mobile objects) around it with a measurement accuracy of the order of fraction of metre at a sampling rate of 100 Hz, based on an intelligent data fusion of the EGNOS/GNSS sensor positioning measurement, the Road-GIS digital local map data and the measurement data obtained from an instrument set installed on board of the vehicle, including vehicle dynamic sensors (tachometer and gyro) and environmental sensors (laser scanners).
The seminar is then the occasion to discuss with representatives of industries potential end-user of the ERSEC results the road-map for the introduction of the ERSEC innovation on the market, both in the field of active safety and in the field of Automated Guided Vehicles.
