EC project composed of seven sub-projects addressing new high performance and integrated safety applications, enhancing the intelligence of vehicles and promoting safer and more efficient driving. The interactIVe project addresses the development and evaluation of next-generation safety systems for Intelligent Vehicles, based on active intervention. The project is based on the concept that by integrating applications together, vehicle components may be shared among the various safety systems. This is accomplished in interactIVe by discrete architectural layers that are common to all applications.


  • Objectives of interactIVe focused on the design, development, and evaluation of integrated Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) applications
  • Composed of seven sub-projects
    • SP1: Integrated project management
    • SP 2: Perception- Specifications for sensor interfaces and fusion models
    • SP3: Information, warning and intervention (IWI) strategies
    • SP4:Safety enhancement through continuous driver support (SECONDS)
    • SP5: Integrated collision avoidance and vehicle path control
    • SP6: Cost-efficient emergency intervention for collision mitigation
    • SP7: Evaluation and legal aspects


By building upon current state-of-the-art technologies, interactIVe will develop next-generation safety systems based on three pillar concepts, namely continuous driver support, collision avoidance, and collision mitigation.The core activities of the project will address the design and development of the Intelligent Vehicle Systems, whose capabilities will be shown in demonstrator vehicles. The project will be conducted through a coordinated effort from leading automotive industries, suppliers, and research institutes.By demonstrating these results, interactIVe will significantly enhance the feasibility and attractiveness of next-generation safety systems, strengthening the position of European industries in the area of Intelligent Vehicles and e-Safety.

  • IWI strategies, requirements and specifications
  • Vehicle dynamics model and path stability control algorithms
  • Test and evaluation of ADAS warning and autonomous braking and steering systems
