  • Title: SAFEWAY2SCHOOL | Pilots
    Descriptive info: Pilots are running.. Here are some impressions from the pilot sites:.. Pilot tests are carried out to evaluate the impact of the developed systems in a realistic environment.. They also provide an environment for demonstration.. SAFEWAY2SCHOOL project includes five pilot sites scattered all over Europe to implement and test the various subsystems.. Each pilot site has a special focus and all of them include different user groups to participate and use the system.. Here you can find an overview on each pilot site.. Description, pilot objectives, experiences from the pilot site and results will be presented successively while the pilots are running.. Austrian Pilot.. German Pilot.. Italian Pilot.. Polish Pilot.. Swedish Pilot.. The following SAFEWAY2SCHOOL subsystems are installed on the pilot sites.. They have either been developed within the project or discovered somewhere in Europe to be integrated into the holistic approach.. Together they provide a toolkit to enhance the safety and comfort of children using school busses for their daily commuting.. Intelligent bus stops:.. such kind of bus stop is equipped with a light indicator placed in the upper part of the sign that illuminates itself when children are approaching.. The goal is to put into evidence the presence of children to passing drivers so that they reduce vehicle speed , such device reveals to be very useful especially in case of fog,  ...   to function as signals, which are clearly visible and recognizable over long viewing distances resp.. high speeds, in order to effectively (early) warn drivers.. Driver Support Systems.. will be placed onto the school buses used in the test site.. The systems are aimed at making the drivers task easier during the school transport by providing useful information about children on board, bus stops, timetable, planned route, fuel consumption, speed limit… Two kind of driver support systems will be tested during the project.. Some parents, students, onboard assistant and service organizers will be provided with several smartphones equipped with a.. SAFEWAY2SCHOOL application.. specifically created for the project aimed at improving the communication among users.. Bus drivers, parents and children involved in the test will be provided a.. training kit.. specifically created to enhance the risk awareness during school transport and to explain how to use the suggested technologies in the most efficient way.. The.. Bus Stop Inventory Tool.. is used to find and classify bus stops from a safety perspective.. The bus stops safety degree is assessed on the basis of the risk of accidents and degree of insecurity for all types of passengers while waiting at a bus stop.. In-Vehicle Driver information and warning.. is a display inside the car and appears when the driver is approaching an intelligent bus stop with children waiting..

  • Title: SAFEWAY2SCHOOL | Safer roads for children
    Descriptive info: Safer roads for children.. Bus transport to and from school is a highly.. underinvestigated area in many EU-countries.. says Dr.. Evangelos Bekiaris, technical manager for the European research project SAFEWAY2SCHOOL that started in September 2009 and will run through September 2012.. The aim is to make the school roads of Europe safer.. It's much needed:.. According to the latest statistics (EU 2002) 35,000 children are injured on European roads every year, 250 of these children are killed.. The most dangerous situations are in the morning, when children go to school, and in the afternoon, when they return home.. The most common crash is when children cross the road behind the bus or in front of the bus in the afternoon.. In Austria 455 schoolchildren were injured in 2007 on their way to and from school, one died.. In Greece 1,450 persons have been killed in school transport crashes since 1990.. In one single crash in Greece in 2003, 20 children lost their lives.. In 2005 in Italy as many as 9,924 children were injured on the roads, 97 died.. Since 2004 five children in Sweden have been killed running out from a bus.. The big questions for the SAFEWAY2SCHOOL  ...   bus that doesn't come.. We need clear and easy to understand signs, along the roads, at bus stops, on buses etc.. We need communication between bus drivers and schoolchildren and parents.. We need education for all involved: bus drivers, children, parents, other drivers etc.. We need to change traffic habits.. And we need as many common rules and regulations as possible within the European communities.. To reach these goals we need support from authorities and from society in general.. Seven European countries are participating in this project that is funded by EU within the 7th Framework Research Program.. The budget is 3.. 7 million Euros (September 2009).. Since the start in September 2009:.. a crash analysis has been done.. a simulator studio built and "live" pilot sites for testing organized and now awaits live testing in four countries: Austria, Italy, Poland and Sweden.. input has been collected from various user groups and stakeholders, from workshops, focus groups, and through a questionnaire that was sent out to over 20 European countries.. new signage have been tested and will be tried in real traffic situations.. telematic systems have been developed.. all knowledge collected is the base for this project’s Use Cases..
