Europe-wide cooperation for integrated transport safety. Web-based collaboration helps companies launch new standards in the vehicle industry

After three years of intensive cooperation, the Europewide EASIS project (Electronic Architecture and Systems Engineering for integrated Safety Systems) to improve transport safety by integrating more efficient and standardised safety systems in passenger vehicles and HGVs has been successfully completed.

The goal of EASIS was to make technology available which includes reliable concepts for modular electrical systems. All leading European vehicle manufacturers and suppliers for the automotive industry took part, as well as independent market research companies. 23 companies were involved in total, communicating in five different languages.

The project was instigated by the European Union in January 2004 and awarded a budget of EUR 9 million. Dr Vera Lauer, Manager E/E Concepts and Technologies at Daimler AG – Research and Technology, was responsible for managing and coordinating the project
