About SafeTRIP

The concept of SafeTRIP is to provide an integrated system platform that will allow any third party company to develop applications for the road market. During the project, we will develop the SafeTRIP platform and demonstrate the following applications:

  • Provision of real-time traffic information and warnings generated by the collection of data coming from other vehicles
  • Emergency call system
  • Tracking in real-time of vulnerable passengers transports.

“SafeTRIP” will integrate innovative satellite technologies and communication features:

  • accurate satellite positioning (GPS / EGNOS / GALILEO)
  • 2-way data communication via satellite
  • Digital radio broadcast via satellite in the new S-band

These unique features allow exploring a new generation of services in order to improve the road safety and to contribute to the environment protection.

Horizon 2020 starts from SafeTRIP


SafeTRIP has now a dedicated page on the website of Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.

The open vehicular platform designed and demonstrated during the project offers wild opportunities to "Apps" developers and third parties willing to built new and innovative services around the connected vehicles.
