Despite the relatively good safety record of the transport sector, sudden failures of infrastructure assets are not uncommon. Extreme weather events, such as heavy rain and flooding, can result in bridge collapses and earthworks failures, which are safety critical issues. Furthermore, transport infrastructure operators are tasked with ongoing maintenance activities regarding infrastructure assets, whereby decisions regarding where to prioritise investments are often tricky due to the complex nature of transport networks and the vast quantity of infrastructure assets.

RESIST will use risk analyses and further develop recent exploitable research results in robotics, driving under panic, sensing and communications, to dramatically improve the speed and effectiveness, while reducing the cost, of structural vulnerability assessment, situation awareness, response operations and increased users’protection under extreme events towards a high level of resilience of the transport infrastructure

Main objective 

RESIST is aiming to increase the resilience of seamless transport operation to natural and man-made extreme events, protect the users of the European transport infrastructure and provide optimal information to the operators and users of the transport infrastructure
