On Tuesday, 24 October 2017 the Greek partners of the I_HeERO – “Infrastructure Harmonised eCall European Pilot” project will present their results at the Hellenic Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport facilities, in Athens (Anastaseos 2 & Tsigante, GR-156 69  Papagos, Greece). The event is part of eCall for HGVs Demo Tour, organised in several European cities, including Athens, to showcase the potential of eCall to save lives following traffic accidents involving Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs), buses and coaches. Please find here (GR, EN) the official invitation letter.

The main objectives of the event in Athens are:

  • To present the Ι_HeERO final achievements and outcomes;
  • To highlight the road safety benefits of eCall for HGVs and passenger cars;
  • To show the road safety benefits an electronic consignment note (eCMR) can bring to eCall for HGVs by providing information on transported goods.

During the event you will have the opportunity to learn about the road safety benefits of eCall for HGVs thanks to a hands-on demonstration with an eCall equipped truck. In addition, eCall for passenger cars and an eCall enabled PSAP will also be showcased as a result of the Greek partners’ effort towards the implementation of the I_HeERO objectives.

The event is expected to attract a wide variety of participants from private and public institutions, local authorities, academic and research communities, manufacturers, road transport professionals and end users associations.

The1st SCENT Newsletter including project highlights, relevant events and ways to get involved was published in July 2017.

After one year of productive work and fruitful discussions in the framework of the Platform for the Deployment of Cooperative Intelligent Transport Systems (C-ITS), a report including guidance on how the EU can make the most of connected cars have been issued last Thursday, 21 January 2016 by the European Commission (DG Move). You can download the report from:


The C-ITS Platform was launched by the Commission in July 2014. The objective of the C-ITS platform was to identify and agree on how to ensure interoperability of C-ITS across borders and along the whole value chain, as well as to identify the most likely and suitable deployment scenario(s). The scope of the C-ITS platform was focused on the main technical (frequencies, hybrid communications, (cyber-) security and access to in-vehicle data) and legal issues (such as liability, data protection and privacy). It also covered standardisation, cost benefit analysis, business models, public acceptance, road safety and other implementation topics, international cooperation, etc. The C-ITS platform will continue its work on 2016 not only focusing on the abovementioned topics but also by expanding in new areas as Automation and Digital Infrastructure.

Dr. Angelos Amditis is the representative of ICCS at the  C-ITS Platform of the European Commission (DG MOVE). The platform is going to adress the main barriers and enablers identified for the deployment of CITS in the EU, in relation to the services likely to be introduce in the first stage (Day 1 applications) in view to provide policy recommendations to the European Commission for the development of a Communication on the Deployment of C-ITS in the EU by the end of 2015.

The chapter "Sensor Data Fusion in Automotive Applications" included at the "Sensor and Data Fusion" book, where Dr. Amditis is a co-author has achieved impressive readership results as it has so farbeen accessed 8000 times.
