The SafeTRIP project: Improving road safety for passenger vehicles using 2-way Satellite communications.
Satellite communication can empower ITS to deploy safety critical services and services of the future, while reaching an unprecedented large number of road users in an eco-friendly and economical way. The SafeTRIP project embraces S-Band communication, creating a powerful and flexible open platform for services that road users need. In this paper, we firstly present an overview of the SafeTRIP project, the salient aspects of the platform and its communication infrastructure. Secondly, we emphasise on the focus the project has on user needs to shape services that would be supported by the SafeTRIP open platform. Finally, we describe the subset of services that have been selected on their relevance to road safety which will part of the trials and demonstrators within the project. We conclude by describing the road map and the project evolution in future.
