IVORY – ‘AI for Vision Zero in Road Safety’ is an industrial doctorates network, aiming to develop a new framework for the integration of AI in road safety and create a new generation of leading researchers in the field, in order to address the UN Sustainable Development Goals target 3.6 (halving the number of traffic fatalities by 2030) and EC ‘Vision Zero’ strategy (eliminating traffic fatalities by 2050). IVORY consists of 4 academic and 8 non-academic beneficiaries, as well as 8 associated partners, joining from engineering, data science and ethics of technology disciplines from 10 countries. It will train 13 researchers on new responsible AI applications for road user assistance and infrastructure safety management, and will create a sustainable learning and networking platform.


IVORY aims to develop:

– Responsible, fair and impactful AI for road safety

– New ways of road user support and human vehicle- environment interaction

– New scalable and equitable AI technologies for proactive infrastructure safety management

– A sustainable knowledge sharing network on AI for road safety

IVORY outputs will not only provide more robust user support through AI in vehicle automation, but will also allow to responsibly and proactively manage the persistent problems of existing conventional, low automation transport systems, so that new opportunities for global road safety impact can emerge. Moreover, IVORY takes a design for-values approach for AI in road safety, operationalising the ethical principles of justice and explainability, and providing efficient AI solutions also for disadvantaged groups (e.g. vulnerable road users, low-to-middle-income countries).

IVORY will create an on-line learning & networking platform for AI in road safety, to be available after the end of the project for future researchers in this field.
