Nominees in the “Driver Assistance” category:
- Roads to live (Road Foundation – Paris) : free mobile road safety awareness application, which offers interactive experiences to learn proper reflexes in a fun and practical way as a user of public road space.
- Evolution of Rehab (developer innovation – Yvelines) : driving simulator to help assess driving ability again for rehabilitation patients after brain injury, trauma, intervention or pathology and allow these patients to train and evaluate their reactions and features to progress before riding the wheel again.
- Car error lane alert (Robert Bosch France-Seine-Saint-Denis) : solution that sends an alert to the driver traveling in the wrong direction and to nearby drivers to warn of danger by flashing the warning on the car panel.
Nominees in the “Avoiding hazards associated with blind spots” category:
- Immersive training “danger of blind spots” (AFT – Oise) : virtual reality experience on the theme of blind spots for training and cognition purposes to put oneself in the place of a vulnerable user, a driver of a light car and a heavy car. By using these modules, which are available free of charge, the user will learn to identify areas of non-visibility of different vehicles, to position themselves correctly on the road. appear and increase their attention to others.
- RightViu® (Continental – Yvelines) : radar-based driving assistance solution, which can be easily added to the rear-view mirrors of heavy vehicles to detect the presence of pedestrians and cyclists. The system does not require the installation of a screen or the drilling of the chassis or body of the vehicle and sends an audible and visual alert to the driver, without adding screen distraction.
Nominees in the “Promoting responsible behavior” category:
- Road safety and motorsport skills (Xilander GT Drive – Var) : specific module “Road safety and training / driver knowledge” in preparation for the Professional certificate of youth in popular education and sport (BPJEPS) Motor Sport. This has helped bring a culture of “road safety” to future auto driving instructors so that they can adapt their posture and their practice to safety purposes and not just sports performance.
- Ethyloborne (Moselle) : mobile and space-saving educational breathalyzer terminal that can be easily installed in all places open to the public (concerts, preventive actions, festive events, etc.). Can be placed on a tripod, placed on a table or placed on the wall, this terminal offers a screen for the transmission of prevention messages.
- Mobisenior.fr (Automobile Club Association-Bas-Rhin) : site entirely dedicated to the movement of the elderly.

Innovation Challenge 2022: 6 nominees
Led by David Julliard, Deputy Interministerial Delegate for Road Safety, the 2022 Innovation Challenge jury met on January 27, 2022 to select the best student project from the 8 applications received.
The nominees are:
- Calydon (Polytech Nancy) : thermal sensor placed on the roof of the car, which makes it possible to identify animals at risk of crossing the road. When the animal is detected, a signal will be sent to the connected bracelet worn by the driver. The latter, feeling his bracelet tremble, was then warned of the presence of an imminent danger.
- Connected biker jacket (Polytech Orléans) : geolocatable jacket that sends notification to relatives in the event of a fall as well as to emergency services, if the motorcyclist is unable to get up. The sensors analyze the affected areas and estimate the severity and likelihood of fractures.
- Docycl ‘(School of Industrial Biology – Cercy) : strip 2 meters long and 3 meters wide to be laid on the ground at cycle lanes, near intersections, allowing cyclists and users of motorized personal transport vehicles (EDPM) to slow down for comfort it is composed of protuberances (in the form of bars). The surface irregularity causes the desired slowdown as well as a sound effect because the passage of the wheels of this material emits a vibration associated with a characteristic sound. It will also alert nearby pedestrians, to increase their vigilance around areas where bicycles and EDPM will meet.
- Monarch Systems (Institute of Optics Graduate School) : automatic and fast solution for road quality inspection. An application collects data from the phone’s accelerometer to detect and detect faults, allowing targeted maintenance and corrective actions to be performed.
- Eyekeepit (Institute of Optics Graduate School) : panel placed on the back of the vehicle (car, bus, truck, etc.) and that warns the next vehicle when it is too close, via a signal light.
