Buoyed by the warm reception of the first edition of our eMagazine we have been hard at work on bringing you the most interesting stories from the world of ITS for our second issue. This month we concentrate on two of the year’s key events: European project euroFOT’s final event and the 19th ITS World Congress in Vienna.

After 3 years of research for evaluating the impact of advance driver assistance system (ADAS) in real traffic situations euroFOT has come to an end. Over a year 1 000 equipped vehicles have been driven and tested on European roads. The project results will be shared with stakeholders this June (26 and 27). 

The 19th ITS World Congress also known as ITS Vienna 2012 will kick off on 22 October for the all following week. More information speakers events are to come but we have the unique opportunity to guide you through the preliminary programme and to give you the anticipation of what will happen during this never-ending week. 

Last but not least we look at passenger vehicle emission standards their impact on fuel costs for drivers and highlight the importance of ITS in reducing emissions and saving motorists money.

We hope this latest issue of the ERTICO eMagazine will pique your interest as we strive to bring you more news and analysis from the world of ITS next month.
