  2. 2. Advancing Traffic Safety An evaluation of speed limits, vehicle-bicycle interactions, and I2V systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Ary Pezo Silvano; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Traffic safety; urban roads; posted speed limits; road characteristics; free-flow speed; time headway; vehicle-bicycle interactions; logit model; yielding probability; cooperative systems and warning messages.; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Since the introduction of motor vehicles, the number of fatalities and accidents has been a concern for society.The number of fatalities on roads is amongst the most common causes of mortality worldwide (WHO, 2015).Even in industrialized countries the number of fatalities remains unacceptable.

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

    University dissertation from Department of Traffic Planning and Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Åse Svensson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1998]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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;

    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

  4. 4. 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 : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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
