ITERATE is based on the assumption that the underlying factors influencing human behaviour such as age, gender, culture etc. are constant between transport modes. This assumption allows for a unified model of driver behaviour, applicable to all surface transport modes, to be developed. This will be done within ITERATE and the model can be used to improve design and safety assessment of innovative technologies and make it possible to adapt these technologies to the abilities, needs, driving style and capacity of the individual driver. The model will also provide a useful tool for authorities to assess ITS which is missing today.
