  1. 1. Injury Biomechanics in Car-Pedestrian Collisions: Development, Validation and Application of Human-Body Mathematical Models

    Author : Jikuang Yang; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : impact biomechanics; car; mathematical dynamic model; pedestrian; safety countermeasure;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to develop and validate human-body mathematical models which can be used to simulate the dynamic responses of pedestrians in a car impact. The main focus has been on simulations of bumper impact to the lower extremities, since lower extremity injuries most frequently occur in car-pedestrian accidents and result in long-term consequences and high social costs.

  2. 2. Real World Data on Driver Behaviour in Accidents and Incidents: Evaluating data collection and analysis methods for car safety development

    Author : Emma Tivesten; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Mail survey questionnaire; Driver safety issues; Driver behaviour; Naturalistic driving study; Statistical analysis; Car safety development; Contributing factors; Case study; Incident causation;

    Abstract : Real world data is important for safety development within the road transportation system. For car safety development in particular, methods to collect and analyse real world data on driver behaviour from normal driving, incidents and accidents are needed to address safety in driving.

    Abstract : Microscopic traffic simulation has proven to be a useful tool for analysis of varioustraffic systems. This thesis consider microscopic traffic simulation of rural roads andthe use of traffic simulation for evaluation of driver assistance systems. READ MORE

  4. 4. Human Vehicle Interaction Drivers’ Body and Visual Behaviour and Tools and Process for Analysis

    Author : Lars Hanson; Ergonomi och aerosolteknologi; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Working process; Vision; Safety; Reach; Posture; Neural network; Fuzzy logic; Ergonomics; Driver behaviour; Documentation; Digital human modelling; Comfort; Button location; Car interior; Technology of other products; Produktteknik allmän ;

    Abstract : Vehicle design is characterized by a high number of compromises. The special role of human factors in the process is to ensure that the compromises do not occur at the expense of the driver and passengers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Understanding and modelling car drivers overtaking cyclists: Toward the inclusion of driver models in virtual safety assessment of advanced driving assistance systems

    Author : Jordanka Kovaceva; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; traffic safety; overtaking manoeuvres; cyclist; naturalistic data; safety benefit;

    Abstract : The total number of road crashes in Europe is decreasing, but the number of crashes involving cyclists is not decreasing at the same rate. To help car drivers avoid or mitigate crashes while overtaking a cyclist, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) have been developed. READ MORE
