The 6 Research institutes (VTT, ECORYS, LTU, CIDAUT, LU, TNO) involved have considerable expertise on the aspects to be covered, such as accident analysis, user needs analysis, impact assessment, usability assessment and HMI evaluation, cooperative traffic systems and cost-benefit assessment.

The 3 Larger Companies (SICE, NXP, Dynniq) will be involved in testing innovative solutions, which will be exploited after the end of the project, in order to increase the safety of VRUs. NXP will also bring in the technology expertise and prototypes for use in the wearable VRU devices. SICE and Dynniq will bring in the viewpoint from ITS system integrators and service suppliers, and allow testing innovative applications by providing access to traffic controllers in the two test sites.

The 2 SMEs considered in the VRUITS consortium (FACTUM and KITE) fulfil completely the above mentioned requisites, as their experience in the domain of automotive safety, specifically focused on human factors and VRU issues, and the involvement in EU co-funded Projects and Networks of Excellence are recorded since the FP 5, both as contribution to specific Projects and Networks (e.g. AIDE-IP, RANKERS, HUMANIST-NoE, etc.) and to published literature.

The International organisation (POLIS) will act as a link between the project and the cities, which are major end-users of ITS applications. The project will assist the cities in making decisions on future investments in ITS applications, and provide recommendations on how to gain the most benefit from the ITS applications.
