For the benefit of road users and society in general, eSafety is working for a quicker development and increased use of smart road safety and eco-drivingtechnologies. They are called ‘smart’ because they are based on the powers of computers and telecoms.
In 2009, road accidents killed 35.100 people in the EU and injured 1.5 million. Human error is involved in 95% of all traffic accidents! Road transport burns one quarter of the EU’s overall energy consumption, and one fifth of the CO2 emissions are caused by road vehicles.
‘eSafety technologies’ help reduce these negative effects of road transport. They bring down the death toll and cut road traffic’s energy consumption and CO2 exhausts.
