  1. 1. 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

  2. 2. Making overtaking cyclists safer: Driver intention models in threat assessment and decision-making of advanced driver assistance system

    Author : Prateek Thalya; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Cyclist; Euro NCAP; Overtaking; ADAS; Driver intention; Interaction;

    Abstract : Introduction: The number of cyclist fatalities makes up 3% of all fatalities globally and 7.8% in the European Union. Cars overtaking cyclists on rural roads are complex situations. Miscommunication and misunderstandings between road users may lead to crashes and severe injuries, particularly to cyclists, due to lack of protection. READ MORE

  3. 3. Improving roundabouts for cyclists and visually impaired

    Author : Lisa Sakshaug; Trafik och väg; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; accessibility; safety; visually impaired; cyclist; roundabout;

    Abstract : Roundabouts are continuing to increase due to their high traffic safety, low delay times and their winning design. However, there are also problems related to roundabouts; the traffic safety for cyclists is unclear or even negative and there are reports of accessibility problems for people with visual impairment.

  4. 4. Seriously injured road users in rural and urban road traffic in a Swedish region - a Vision Zero perspective

    Author : Astrid Värnild; Larm Peter; Per Tillgren; Marie Hasselberg; Mälardalens högskola; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Vision Zero; road injuries; rural; urban; cyclist; pedestrian; policy; management by objectives; folkhälsovetenskap; Public Health Sciences;

    Abstract : Globally more than 50 million people are injured in road traffic every year. The incidence of road injuries is increasing while that of fatalities is decreasing. Road safety measures are being implemented in many countries to reduce the effects on public health. In highly motorized countries, the process is often managed by quantitative targets. READ MORE

  5. 5. Towards computational models for road-user interaction: Drivers overtaking pedestrians and cyclists

    Author : Alexander Rasch; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cyclist safety; Pedestrian safety; driver models; overtaking; active safety; driver behavior; Euro NCAP; vulnerable road users; interaction models;

    Abstract : Introduction: Crashes resulting from a failed interaction between drivers and vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians or cyclists, can lead to severe injuries or fatalities, especially after failed overtaking maneuvers on rural roads where designated refuge areas are often absent, and impact speeds high. This thesis contains two studies that shed light on driver interaction with either 1) a pedestrian or 2) a cyclist, and oncoming traffic while overtaking. READ MORE
