    Abstract : Microscopic traffic simulation has proven to be a useful tool for analysis of varioustraffic systems. This thesis consider microscopic traffic simulation of rural roads andthe use of traffic simulation for evaluation of driver assistance systems. READ MORE

  2. 2. A method for analysing the traffic process in a safety perspective

    University dissertation from Department of Traffic Planning and Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Box 118, S-22100 LUND, Sweden

    Author : Åse Svensson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1998]
    Keywords : accidents; intermediate method; pedestrian safety; safety hierarchy; severity; traffic conflicts; interaction; road user behaviour; Traffic safety; traffic process; Time to Accident.; Social sciences; Samhällsvetenskaper; Technological sciences; Teknik; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The aim of this study is to extend the traffic safety assessment concept to also include normal road user behaviour, thus not only exceptional behaviours such as accidents and serious conflicts. The goal is to provide a framework for a more thorough description and analysis of safety related road user behaviour in order to better understand the traffic safety processes. READ MORE

  3. 3. A Traffic Simulation Modeling Framework for Rural Highways

    University dissertation from Institutionen för teknik och naturvetenskap

    Author : Andreas Tapani; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : Engineering and Technology Other Engineering and Technologies Other Engineering and Technologies not elsewhere specified; Teknik och teknologier Annan teknik Övrig annan teknik; Road: Traffic theory; Road: Traffic theory; Traffic; Micro; Simulation; Model; Overtaking; Speed; Headway; Rural road; Electronic driving aid; Mathematical model; TECHNOLOGY Other technology; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Övriga teknikvetenskaper; Traffic Simulation; Rural Highway; Level-of-Serivice; Road safety; safety indicators; Advanced Driver Assistance Systems ADAS ;

    Abstract : Models based on micro-simulation of traffic flows have proven to be useful tools in the study of various traffic systems. Today, there is a wealth of traffic microsimulation models developed for freeway and urban street networks. The road mileage is however in many countries dominated by rural highways. READ MORE

  4. 4. Creating Safety in Air Traffic Control

    University dissertation from Lund : Arkiv

    Author : Johan M. Sanne; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : Social Sciences Sociology Social Anthropology; Samhällsvetenskap Sociologi Socialantropologi; Risk; safety; air traffic control; ethnography; schemes; rules; resources; cognitive; social; interaction; coordination; socio-technical systems; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Social anthropology ethnography; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Socialantrolopologi etnografi;

    Abstract : Is flying safe? Indeed it is -- statistics tell us that it is far more dangerous to drive a car or take the train. But flight safety does not just happen. Instead, as it is argued in this book, it is created by a well-developed air traffic control system that continues to be highly effective -- despite increasing volumes of traffic. READ MORE

  5. 5. Safety at Rail-Road Level Crossings

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Mohammad Shahriari; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [1993]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Industriell teknik och ekonomi; Industrial engineering and economy; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering mechanics; rail road crossings; safety; traffic safety; driver behaviour; risk analysis;

    Abstract : Safety related to traffic at rail/road level crossings has long been a major issue for rail operators all over the world. Eliminating these level crossings entirely would be a desirable solution. However converting them into separate types is very expensive and not reasonable in many cases, e.g. READ MORE
