ERJ staff report (DS)
Brussels -- The final workshop of the TYROSAFE ('Tyre and road surface optimisation for skid resistance and further effects') project will take place on 10 June 2010 in Brussels, Belgium.
The workshop will feature the development, assessment and final results of the TYROSAFE project. The main objectives of the project have been to raise awareness, prepare for European harmonisation and optimise the assessment and management of tyre/road interaction parameters.
The project has specifically focused on tyres and their interaction with the road surfaces, including: the lack of awareness of the importance and contribution of skidding resistance, the lack of harmonised systems for comparing skidding resistance (even within Member States), and the concern over conflicts with other important characteristics of road surfaces.
