  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Creating Safety in Air Traffic Control

    University dissertation from Lund : Arkiv

    Author : Johan M. Sanne; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; 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

  3. 3. 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

  4. 4. Safety within the Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) Domain. Understanding the role of the VTS for safety within maritime traffic management

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Gesa Praetorius; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2012]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Vessel Traffic Service VTS ; maritime safety; safety construction; traffic management;

    Abstract : Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) is a shore-sided service implemented to promote the safety of navigation, safety of life at sea, and the protection of the marine environment. Its purpose is to work for safe and fluent traffic movements within a determined area, a VTS area. READ MORE

  5. 5. Traffic Safety Dimensions and the Power Model to Describe the Effect of Speed on Safety

    University dissertation from Traffic Engineering

    Author : Göran Nilsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2004]
    Keywords : consequence; risk; dimension; accident rate; injury rqte; speed; speed limit; cross-sectionel; Road transport technology; Safety technology; Vägtransportteknik; Säkerhetsteknik; accidents; Traffic safety; exposure; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Traffic safety work needs different methods and tools in order to choose and evsaluate traffic safety measures. The thesis contributes to this problem by presenting and visualizing a method which describes the traffic safety situation in several dimensions. READ MORE
