Leading German companies from the automobile industry and the telecommunications and software development sectors are today presenting the results of AKTIV, one of Germany's most important road safety projects, to Parliamentary State Secretary Peter Hintze. The declared aim of this four-year research initiative launched back in September 2006 is to further enhance active road safety, relieve drivers and harmonise traffic flows. Involved in many of the initiative's subprojects, Volkswagen AG is an important partner in this research project sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology.

"Volkswagen has set the goal of developing innovative driver assistance systems for safer and more sustainable mobility. Volkswagen Group Research thus views AKTIV as one of its flagship projects and is striving to transform the project results into production-ready products as quickly as possible," commented Dr. Jürgen Leohold, Head of Volkswagen Group Research, at today's wrap-up event in Mendig.

The German marque is involved with 3 sub projects: "Pedestrian and Cyclist Safety", "Integrated Lateral Assistance" or lane-keeping assistance system, "Driver Awareness and Safety" and "Situation-Response Driving".
