  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

    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

  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; Haris Koutsopoulos; Haneen Farah; Karl-Lennart Bång; Alfonso Montella; [2016]

    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.

  4. 4. Creating Safety in Air Traffic Control

    University dissertation from Lund : Arkiv

    Author : Johan M. Sanne; Boel Berner; Jane Summerton; Dave Randall; [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

  5. 5. Safety at Rail-Road Level Crossings

    University dissertation from Lund : Arkiv

    Author : Mohammad Shahriari; [1993]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; driver behaviour; risk analysis; traffic safety; rail road crossings; safety;

    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
