SHANTI : Survey Harmonisation with New Technologies Improvement

Objet du projet

The issues of global warming and petrol scarcity have reminded us that a sustainable, yet efficient transport system is as crucial for our economy and standard of living as it will be for future generations. An essential prerequisite for sound decision making and policies are reliable and comparable data. Even though EUROSTAT has already harmonized family expenditure and time use surveys, as well as the survey on Heavy Goods Vehicles, nothing is planned on medium term for passenger transport. Results of the FP6 project KITE show that comparability of existing mobility demand figures from National Travel Surveys is not easy to achieve. The outcome of the COST 355 and the 2008 ISCTSC conference point in the same direction; data harmonization is indispensable for European transport surveys. The Action will address these issues, but beyond that how new survey technologies, particularly based on GPS, can help to achieve the harmonization. Research will focus both on passenger and vehicle-based surveys. The goal is to produce recommendations and guidelines towards a European travel survey that will ease the assessment of European level policies in term of efficiency and equity, whilst maintaining opportunities for each country to compare results with past surveys.
