Our conurbations and major cities have constantly growing traffic volumes. Our urban roads are congested at peak times, and traffic jams and accidents are a daily occurrence. New mobility concepts, including e-scooters, will soon hit our streets. Intersections are a particular flashpoint for urban traffic. The greater the number of road users in a confusing environment, the greater the potential for accidents at these junctions.
That’s why the recently completed InVerSiv research project aimed to improve safety at busy, complex intersections. Following the two-and-a-half year research phase, the results of the project are currently being presented. The acronym InVerSiv stands for “Intelligent transport infrastructure for safe networked driving in the megacity” (Intelligente Verkehrsinfrastruktur für sicheres vernetztes Fahren in der Megacity), reflecting its goals. adesso is presenting the results of the project together with its consortium partners – premièring today with a live demonstration at a real intersection in Dortmund.
