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

    Author : Azra Habibovic; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vulnerable road user; warning; functional requirement; causation; intersection; accident prevention; 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

  2. 2. Safety-oriented communication in mobile networks for vehicles

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Ioan Chisalita; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; vehicular communication; active safety systems; collision warning and avoidance; safety-related information; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Accident statistics indicate that every year a large number of casualties and extensive property losses are recorded due to traffic accidents. Consequently, efforts are directed towards developing passive and active safety systems that help reducing the severity of crashes or prevent vehicles to collide with each other. READ MORE

  3. 3. Tracking Theory for Preventive Safety Systems

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Lars Danielsson; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vehicle tracking; sensor data fusion; automotive; active safety systems; sensor models; warning integration; motion models; fusion strategies; human machine interface; preventive safety systems;

    Abstract : Preventive safety systems rely on accurate information from a sensing system regarding the current traffic situation to make decision whether to inform, warn or intervene to avoid an impeding collision or to mitigate its consequences. This thesis mainly considers tracking algorithms to enhance these systems through making the best use of the information supplied by on-vehicle sensors, such as radar and vision sensors. READ MORE

  4. 4. Analyzing real-world data to promote development of active safety systems that reduce car-to-vulnerable road user accidents

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Azra Habibovic; [2012]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Accident prevention; Naturalistic observation; Causation analysis; Active safety system; Vulnerable road user VRU ; Driver behavior; Functional requirements; Statistical analysis; VRU behavior;

    Abstract : The overall objective of the thesis is to explore various types of real-world road traffic data and to assess the extent to which they can inform the design of active safety systems that aim to prevent car-to-vulnerable road user (VRU) accidents. A combined analysis of in-depth and police reported accident data provided information on driver behavior and contextual variables, which is valuable for the development of active safety systems.

  5. 5. Delay-sensitive wireless communication for cooperative driving applications

    University dissertation from Halmstad : Halmstad University Press

    Author : Annette Böhm; Högskolan i Halmstad.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Cooperative driving applications; wireless communication;

    Abstract : Cooperative driving holds the potential to considerably improve the level of safety and efficiency on our roads. Recent advances in in-vehicle sensing and wireless communication technology have paved the way for the development of cooperative traffic safety applications based on the exchange of data between vehicles (or between vehicles and road side units) over a wireless link.
