CEESAR is a non-profit organization, based in Nanterre, near Paris. It has been created in 1992, by French carmakers in association with some automotive suppliers, universities and insurance companies. Currently, 40 employees work at CEESAR, in three research departments, focusing on different aspects of road safety research: accidentology, biomechanics and driver behaviour studies. Recently, CEESAR participated in 2BESAFE project, organizing a pilot naturalistic riding study in France, and in EUROFOT, managing vehicles’ instrumentation, data collection, processing, and analysis, for the French experiment (40 vehicles, 600 000 km of data). CEESAR is also participating in UDRIVE. In that project, CEESAR manages data collection in France, and is in charge of data management and processing software for the whole project. This effort will be based on a software suite called Driveware, in continuous development at CEESAR, which allows managing large amount of data and eases analysts’ tasks by providing generic tools to perform their most frequent tasks.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 610453.
