Its Safer Transport for Europe Platform aims to address the problem of data fragmentation and information silos that limit the benefits connectivity can bring to road safety.

Vodafone is launching a platform to help improve road safety in Europe by connecting road users directly with transport authorities and each other.

It will enable safety information, hazard warnings and traffic updates to be shared in real-time, no matter which device or in-vehicle system they are using.

Vodafone is collaborating with several partners to bring the technology to road users and plans to introduce the platform within its own Vodafone Automotive apps later this year. It will be compatible with all third-party apps and in-vehicle navigation systems.

Breaking down silos

The new platform, called Safer Transport for Europe Platform (Step), aims to address the problem of data fragmentation and information silos that limit the benefits connectivity can bring to road safety. Vodafone reports that transport authorities are often limited to delivering safety updates through road infrastructure – such as motorway gantries, variable-message or matrix signs – or via a limited number of technologies developed by independent manufacturers, such as in-vehicle navigation systems.

Step offers a solution to these challenges. As a cloud-based platform built on open industry standards, it enables a wide ecosystem of participants – governments, transport authorities, vehicle manufacturers, mobility service providers and other mobile network operators – to work together to improve road safety across Europe.

“Step encourages the collaboration to unlock the full value of data and connectivity in helping make Europe’s roads safer”

In its initial phase, Step will be able to facilitate the delivery of safety messages and targeted updates from road operators on lane closures, speed restrictions and traffic incidents on the road ahead, across a variety in-vehicle systems and navigation apps. The platform could also enable modelling of the road network in real-time using secure, anonymised, and aggregated vehicle position data.

Vodafone’s long-term ambition is to develop the platform’s safety functionality to include detection warnings for vulnerable road users – for example, a driver of a large vehicle could be alerted to nearby cyclists or pedestrians out of view – as well as fleet management, stolen vehicle tracking and supporting usage-based insurance.

Step is designed to be compatible with all map apps and in-vehicle navigation systems developed by partner organisations, and users will benefit from free access to the platform and its safety features.
This scaled platform enables the delivery of vital safety information to all road users, no matter what app or system they rely on,” said Vinod Kumar, chief executive officer, Vodafone Business. “Step encourages the collaboration needed between transport authorities, app developers and the automotive industry to unlock the full value of data and connectivity in helping make Europe’s roads safer.”

“This scaled platform enables the delivery of vital safety information to all road users, no matter what app or system they rely on”

The launch of Step builds on Vodafone’s successful trials of the UK’s first vehicle-to-everything road safety system, a cloud-based mobility platform that provides road users with live, highly localised and targeted updates from road operators on lane closures, speed restrictions and traffic incidents.

Trials at Vodafone’s 5G Mobility Lab at the Aldenhoven Testing Centre in Germany have also explored how 5G technology and precise location tracking can help improve traffic safety. Vodafone is collaborating with automotive manufacturers, road operators, transport authorities, tech partners and app developers on current and future use cases for the Safer Transport for Europe Platform.
