Purpose and goal

The project aims to clearly investigate and evaluate the effects of the use of EVAM Transmit to improve road safety around emergency vehicles and accidents. The project will be conducted as a pilot study, evaluating the entire value chain from manufacturer to customer. The aim of the project is to contribute to improved road safety awareness for emergency vehicles, which today is an area with very limited knowledge, as well as knowledge about how the technology behind the EVAM Transmit can be used to improve road safety.

Expected results and effects

The goal of the project is to create knowledge about the traffic safety of emergency vehicles, verification of the value chain and the effects of EVAM Transmit and thus created material and knowledge for continued commercialization of the product nationally and internationally. The project therefore hopes to contribute both new knowledge about the problem and new technology to solve the problem. The project will contribute to improved road safety, improved working environment for emergency personnel and shortened response times.

Planned approach and implementation

The parties in the project together represent the entire value chain from production to customer. The project is conducted as a pilot project with a clear aim that utilizes every player’s excellence. H&E is responsible for the project in its entirety and more specifically the design of the product and the test bench. Inission is, as a leading electronics manufacturer, responsible for the production of the products used in the pilot studies. VTI is, as a leading road safety research institute, responsible for independent evaluation of the product.
