eIMPACT assesses the socio-economic effects of Intelligent Vehicle Safety Systems (IVSS), their impact on traffic safety and efficiency. It addresses policy options and the views of the different stakeholders involved: users, OEMs, insurance companies, and society. With determining these effects, eIMPACT also provides an indication of the prospects for introducing IVSS.
eIMPACT is part of the EU's Sixth Framework Programme for Information Society Technologies and Media and will run for two and a half years until July 2008. eIMPACT is short for "Socio-economic Impact Assessment of Stand-alone and Co-operative Intelligent Vehicle Safety Systems (IVSS) in Europe"; the consortium is led by TNO and comprises 13 partners that represent OEMs, research institutes and universities, encompassing many EU states.
The project was concluded end of June 2008 with the final conference in Paris.
