  1. 1. Colour patterns in warning displays

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Zoology, Stockholm University

    Author : Marianne Aronsson; Stockholms universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aposematism; warning colouration; colour patterns; avoidance learning; generalization behaviour; signal design; signal evolution; conspicuousness; mimicry; etologi; Ethology;

    Abstract : In aposematism a prey species use bright colours, often combined with a black contrasting pattern, to signal unprofitability as prey to potential predators. Although there are several different hypotheses about the presence of these internally contrasting patterns, there is little experimental evidence of any beneficial effects. READ MORE

  3. 3. Reduction of Vulnerable Road User accidents in urban intersections: Needs and challenges in designing Advanced Driver Assistance Systems

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Azra Habibovic; Chalmers tekniska högskola.; Chalmers University of Technology.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Teknisk mekanik; Engineering mechanics; vulnerable road user; intersection; causation; functional requirement; accident prevention; warning; advanced driver assistance system; infrastructure-car cooperation;

    Abstract : Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) can be used to prevent accidents, or to reduce their severity. It is essential to determine what functional requirements such systems should fulfill to meet drivers’ support needs. An understanding of the underlying contributing factors and context in which the accidents occur is therefore crucial. READ MORE

  5. 5. In-hospital patient safety - prevention of deterioration and unexpected death by systematic and interprofessional use of early warning scoring

    University dissertation from Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care

    Author : Gitte Bunkenborg; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2014]

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Danish Summary in Danish Patientsikkerhed på hospital – forebyggelse af uventede dødsfald via systematisk anvendelse af et Early Warning Score system På hospitaler i den vestlige del af verden sker det, på trods af store indsatser for at øge patientsikkerheden, at indlagte patienters tilstand forværres alvorligt, og at nogle af disse patienter i værste tilfælde dør, som konsekvens af utilstrækkelig overvågning og uoptimal håndtering af situationen fra hospitalspersonalets side. I de sidste tyve år har man haft kendskab til, at patienter, der dør uventet på hospital, frembyder afvigende vitale parametre (puls, vejrtrækningsfrekvens, blodtryk og temperatur) i op til 48 timer inden det uventede dødsfald.
