Editorial: Welcome to the iMobility Challenge!

It is my pleasure to introduce the iMobility Challenge: a new project which aims to promote the market take-up of clean, efficient and safe ITS solutions in Europe. iMobility Challenge is the successor to the eSafety Challenge project which focused on the promotion of eSafety systems.

We need your support to successfully bring more intelligent vehicles to market, and hope you will join the iMobility Challenge with us!
