  1. 1. Integrated pedestrian safety assessment methodology

    Author : Nils Lübbe; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; assessment; driver behavior; comfort zone boundary; integrated safety; pedestrian; Forward Collision Warning; False Positive;

    Abstract : Pedestrian fatalities and injuries are a concern in many regions. Passive safety assessment is well established, and additional active safety assessment has recently emerged. However, assessment methods reflecting on the interaction between active and passive safety do not exist in regulatory or consumer testing. 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

    Author : Åse Svensson; [1998]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; intermediate method; Accidents; pedestrian safety; safety hierarchy; severity; traffic conflicts; interaction; road user behaviour; traffic safety; traffic process; time to accidents; safety indicators; surrogate measures;

    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. Integrated Pedestrian Safety Assessment: A Method to Evaluate Combinations of Active and Passive Safety

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

    Author : Nils Lübbe; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AEB; assessment; pedestrian; comfort boundary; driver behaviour; False Positive; integrated safety; airbag; FCW; reaction time;

    Abstract : Pedestrian road casualties are a major concern in many countries. Vehicle safety systems attempt to reduce casualties, and the accurate assessment of such systems is therefore essential. Passive safety assessment is well established, and additional active safety assessment has recently emerged. READ MORE

  4. 4. On the Treatment of Flow in Traffic Safety Analysis, - a non-parametric approach applied on vulnerable road users

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

    Author : Lars Ekman; [1996]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Social sciences; Samhällsvetenskaper; Teknik; Technological sciences; safety performance function; accuracy; simulation; bootstrap; bicyclist; pedestrian; risk; Traffic Safety; accident rate;

    Abstract : The treatment of flow in the area of traffic safety has a long tradition. The influence flow has on the number of accidents is, however, often considered so obvious that it tends to be trivial. In this thesis I can show that the relation between flow and accidents holds interesting information. READ MORE

  5. 5. Identifying the Potential of Combined Road Safety Interventions - A Method to Evaluate Future Effects of Integrated Road and Vehicle Safety Technologies

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

    Author : Johan Strandroth; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Evaluation; Road Safety Management; Autonomous Emergency Braking; Safety Performance Indicators; System Approach; Prediction; Integrated Safety; Vehicle Safety Technology;

    Abstract : Health loss in the road transport system is one of the leading global public health problems with approximately 1.3 million people killed annually. In order to have a systematical approach to improved road safety, it has become common practice to form road safety management policies that include target setting and evaluation. READ MORE
