  1. 1. Towards a Road Safety Development Index (RSDI) Development of an International Index to Measure Road Safety Performance

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Ghazwan Al Haji; Kenneth Asp; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Technology; Road safety; RSDI; ASEAN; international comparisons; Human Development; Index; ranking; principal components; composite indicators; macro-performance indicators; macro-models; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Aim. This study suggests a set of methodologies to combine different indicators of road safety into a single index. The RSDI is a simple and quick composite index, which may become a significant measurement in comparing, ranking and determining road safety levels in different countries and regions worldwide. Design. READ MORE

  2. 2. Components, Safety Interfaces, and Compositional Analysis

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Jonas Elmqvist; Simin Nadjm-Tehrani; [2007]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Component-based system development; safety-critical systems; safety interfaces; compositional analysis; modelbased development; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Component-based software development has emerged as a promising approach for developing complex software systems by composing smaller independently developed components into larger component assemblies. This approach offers means to increase software reuse, achieve higher flexibility and shorter time-to-market by the use of off-the-shelf components (COTS). READ MORE

  4. 4. Predictive models for accidents on urban links - A focus on vulnerable road users

    University dissertation from Department of Technology and Society, Lund University

    Author : Thomas Jonsson; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Road transport technology; Transportteknik; Transport technology; Teknik; Technological sciences; Stads- och glesbygdsplanering; Town and country planning; speed; links; urban; safety; vulnerable road users; modelling; prediction; crash; traffic safety; accident; Vägtransportteknik;

    Abstract : Much of earlier work on predictive models for accidents has been focused on rural traffic or urban intersections. This work has aimed at identifying and investigating possible improvements to predictive models for accidents on urban links. A special focus has been on the accidents of vulnerable road users.

  5. 5. 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
