Intelligent car

Imagine a world without road congestion and where cars do not crash, a world where your car is energy efficient and pollutes less.

Today Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) are starting to make this dream true. Your car is becoming smarter, helping to reduce Europe's road transport problems.

In February 2006, therefore, the Commission launched the "i2010 Intelligent Car Initiative", to remove bottlenecks in rolling out intelligent systems and to speed the development of smarter, safer and cleaner transport for Europe.

eSafety, a joint initiative of the European Commission, the industry and other stakeholders has been created to fulfill these objectives.
