The objective of VIRTUAL is to improve the safety of road users by providing procedures and open access tools to assess the benefit of novel safety systems. The goal is to establish a European based global hub for Open Source Virtual Testing (OpenVT) and to demonstrate its success in traffic safety. Open Source Human Body Models of both men and women will be made available in a format that is scalable to represent different ages and sizes of car occupants, vulnerable road users, and users of public transport.

Previous projects


Coordinated by TOI

CITYLAB established living labs as a working method in city logistics, and the objective was to develop knowledge and solutions resulting in up-scaling and roll-out of strategies, measures and tools for emission-free city logistics in urban centres by 2030.

Contact: Jardar Andersen


The main objective of the InDeV project was to contribute to the improvement of Vulnerable Road Users’ (VRU) safety in Europe, by developing an integrated methodology for understanding accident causes for VRUs.

Contact: Torkel Bjørnskau


The primary objective of the SafetyCube project was to develop an innovative road safety Decision Support System (DSS) to enable policy-makers and stakeholders to select and implement the most appropriate strategies, measures and cost-effective approaches to reduce casualties of all road user types and all severities in Europe and worldwide.

SMART-RAIL was one of the lighthouse projects of SHIFT2RAIL and contributed to Innovation Programme 5. The SMART-RAIL project was aligned with the objectives of SHIFT2RAIL, ensuring that the results could be used in further research in this programme. SMART-RAIL was funded under the H2020 Programme of the European Commission. SMART-RAIL was launched in May 2015 and ended in April 2018.
