    Abstract

    The EU-sponsored VRUITS project assesses the safety and mobility impacts of Intelligent Transport System (ITS) applications for Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs), assesses the impacts of current and upcoming ITS applications on the safety and mobility of VRUs, identifies how the usability and efficiency of ITS applications can be improved, and recommends which actions have to be taken at a policy level to improve ITS safety and mobility. This chapter describes the results of the first phase of the project in which the critical scenarios for VRUs are identified, starting from accident data analysis, and following user needs based on focus groups and expert interviews. The result of the work in the different areas is combined into a consolidated set of outputs, consisting of recommendations for industry to improve the efficiency and performance of ITS applications, and of policy recommendations.
