COOPERS (Co-operative Systems for Intelligent Road Safety) is a 48-month Integrated Project (IP) co-funded by the European Commission (DG-Information Society and Media) in the 6th Framework Programme. 37 partners from 15 European countries are participating in COOPERS under the co-ordination of AustriaTech. The project started in February 2006 and is planned to be completed in 2010.

COOPERS is focused on the development of telematics applications on motorway infrastructures with the long term objective of ‘co-operative traffic management’ interfacing vehicles with motorway infrastructure. This contribution to enhance road safety of European motorways is the overall aim of COOPERS. In order to achieve this new safety-related services equipment and applications are defined, developed and tested.
