IASP Identification of Hazard Location and Ranking of Measures to Improve Safety The target of the project is the performance of a "project pilot" on two lane rural roads. The project will be able to define methodologies and procedures for the analysis of actual road safety conditions and to arrange maintenance or restoration projects in order to improve safety.
IATSS - International Association of Transport and Safety Sciences The International Association of Traffic and Safety Science, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, publishes the journal IATSS Research twice a year. The IATSS gathers together the knowledge and expertise of professionals in a range of traffic-related fields to conduct a range of activities to build ideal traffic flows for modern society.
IDB The Injury Database (IDB) is a database on non-fatal home, leisure and sports accidents. It is an internet database set up by DG SANCO under the Injury Prevention Programme in 1999, in order to provide central access to the data collected in the Member States under the EHLASS Programme (European Home and Leisure Accident Surveillance System).
IFP - International Federation of Pedestrians The goals of IFP are to promote and to defend the pedestrian's right to full access and mobility. IFP works toward the prevention of traffic collisions and the reduction of injury and disability resulting from them. The protection of children and the elderly as the most vulnerable groups in society is most urgent. IFP represents the interests of the pedestrian at the international level and works with agencies of the United Nations and the European Union, and cooperates with a wide range of non-governmental organizations.

IMMORTAL Impaired Motorists, Methods of Roadside Testing and Assessment for Licensing IMMORTAL specifies a research programme concerning the accident risk associated with different forms of driver impairment and the identification of 'tolerance levels' applied to licensing assessment and roadside impairment testing (including drug screening).
IN-ARTE Integration of Navigation and Anticollission for Rural Traffic Environment. The aim of IN-ARTE was to develop an integrated autonomous on-board system to be able to build an extended view of the environment in front of the vehicle, integrating signals from anticollision radar, road recognition CCD sensors and navigation map, in order to guide and warn the driver through an optimum HMI in a series of rural areas related traffic tasks, such as intersection handling, speed selection while negotiations, curves, obstacle detection, etc.
In-Safety The aim of In-Safety is to develop intelligent, intuitive and cost-efficient combinations of new technologies and traditional infrastructure best practice applications, in order to enhance the forgiving and self-explanatory nature of roads.

Instytutu Transportu Samochodowego (PL) MOTOR TRANSPORT INSTITUTE The Institutes main objectives are: conducting, co-ordinating and popularising scientific research as well as development work on the road transport, working out new technical solutions, organisational and economic ones concerning mainly such subjects as road traffic participants. safety and environmental protection. Also fulfilling other tasks particularly important to obtain goals set out by social and economic state policy.
Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (US) The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the Highway Loss Data Institute are independent, nonprofit, research and communications organizations funded by car insurers and dedicated to reducing highway crash deaths, injuries, and property losses.
International Transport Forum In May 2005, Ministers agreed in Moscow that the ECMT should be transformed into a publicly recognised international Ministerial forum, designed to increase the understanding of the importance of transport. In Dublin, in May 2006, they established the International Transport Forum. The aim of the Forum is to foster a deeper understanding among policy makers and wider audiences of the role of transport as a key to economic growth and of transport’s impact on the environmental and social dimensions of sustainability.
INTRAS - Instituto Universitario de Tráfico y seguridad vial (ES) INTRAS (Institute of Traffic and Road Safety) is an interdisciplinary research centre of the University of València dedicated to the scientific and applied research, the development and innovation, the training and advising in the field of road safety and traffic accidents, mainly from the point of view of the human factors and the driver’s behaviour with the vehicle, the infrastructures and the police controls.
IRCOBI International Research Council on Biomechanics on Injury Road transport deaths and injuries have been a byproduct of increased motorisation since the introduction of the motor car; but had gone largely unnoticed by policymakers until three decades ago. Therefore, a small group of researchers from different European countries agreed to combine two programmes one on accident biomechanics and the other on human tolerance to impact into the science of the kinematics of impact injuries. These deliberations resulted in the formation of the International Research Committee on the Biokinetics of Impact (IRCOBI). In 1992, this group changed its name to the International Research Council on the Biomechanics of Injury to reflect more accurately its overall mission.
IRF - International Road Federation The International Road Federation (IRF) is a unique global platform that brings together public and private entities committed to road development. Working together with its members and associates, the IRF promotes social and economic benefits that flow from well-planned and environmentally sound transportation networks.
IRTAD - International Road Traffic and Accident Database In 1988, the OECD Road Transport Research Programme established the International Road Traffic and Accident Database (IRTAD) as a mechanism for providing an aggregated database, in which international accident and victim as well as exposure data are collected on a continuous basis.
