SKY General information: The SKY project is a field test of applications already available on the market or coming soon. It is carried out by a large number of ordinary people in real traffic conditions. The SKY project started with several initiatives such as intelligent speed advisory testing with 2,000 participants around primary schools, intersection collision avoidance using V2I with the same number of participants, small children traffic safety using RFID with 300 participants, pedestrian traffic safety using GPS cell phone by 700 participants, hazard warning on winter road by 150 participants, real time probe car data collection by 2,700 vehicles, etc.

This FOT is in order to grasp the system ability to prevent the opposite direction driving in highways.
