The PHOEBE Consortium met in Brussels last week to advance project plans and update the European Commission during a two-day exchange of 11 sector-leading partners.

The EU-funded ‘Predictive Approaches for Safer Urban Environment’ (PHOEBE) Project aims to increase the road safety of vulnerable road users, especially those who use active mobility and e-scooters.

It is building on the strengths of both iRAP’s road safety assessment tools and AIMSUN’s simulation and Artificial Intelligence for future mobility tools to deliver harmonised, integrated and world-leading safety prediction tools that take account of gender, age and ability levels in providing for future mobility.

Three fruitful days, from 11-13 June, helped to advance the pilot planning, integration of models and last details concerning the PHOEBE framework.

Two technical workshops focussed on the integration of additional safety measures into the PHOEBE framework, the further alignment of data between AIMSUN and iRAP, and the overall implementation strategy for the upcoming months.

The three pilot sites of Athens, Valencia and the West Midlands gave detailed updates on the planned interventions, data gathering efforts, and the status of cooperation with local stakeholders.

The consortium will meet again from 3-5 December in Valencia to visit the streets and cycling paths utilised for the safety assessment. The meeting will also be dedicated to a full day of exchange with the project’s ‘Community of Practice’ and opportunity to visit the PHOEBE test sites.
