Under the heading “INNOVATION AND ROAD SAFETY. THE DEVELOPMENT OF COOPERATIVE SYSTEMS. THE C-ROADS EUROPEAN PROJECT. SUBPILOTO GALICIA”, ICEACSA Group presented the progress made in the C-Roads Spain project funded by the European Innovation Agency under the CEF (Connecting European Facilities) programme. Under the premise that an informed driver is a safer driver, this innovation project is experimenting with the deployment of new road safety services based on cooperative technologies. David Cota was awarded for this paper by the Scientific Committee of the Congress with the second prize.
In addition, ICEACSA Group, together with a panel of experts from Peru, Panama, Argentina and Spain, participated in the technical session dedicated to discussing the challenges of public road safety policies in the region, reflecting on the need for standardization and use of appropriate technological tools for road safety and mobility management.
The main theme of the Congress is the fact that the great challenge of reducing the number of accidents at the beginning of the decade 2010-2020 has not been achieved, although the accident rates in the Latin America and the Caribbean region have fallen significantly compared to 2010 and there have been considerable improvements in all areas of work, so that just over a year after the end of this decade, it is necessary to carry out a critical analysis and lay the foundations for a new approach to fighting road traffic accidents and their consequences.
For this reason, the VI CISEV proposes as a great challenge to set goals for the next UN Decade of Action in view of the approaching 2020 time horizon and, thus, to continue insisting on the importance of road safety improvement strategies being incorporated into the major State policies of the countries of the Region. An interesting technical approach that has aroused great interest from experts, companies, organisations, public administrations, multilateral banks, associations and all those who have something to say or contribute in this field; objectives to which ICEACSA Group joins.
