  2. 2. Evaluation of Adapted Passenger Cars for Drivers with Physical Disabilities

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Björn Peters; Statens väg- och transportforskningsinstitut.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Disabled person; Driver; Car; Adaptation; Equipment; Vehicle handling; Simulator; Adaptive cruise control; Driving aptitude; Thesis; 911 Road: Components of the vehicle; 911 Road: Components of the vehicle; 841 Road: Road user behaviour; 841 Road: Road user behaviour; 84 Road: Road users; 84 Road: Road users;

    Abstract : Driving can provide independent and efficient mobility. However, according to the driving license directive (91/439/EEC) are persons with locomotor impairments are only allowed drive if their disabilities can be compensated. Compensation can be realised by vehicle adaptations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modelling self-reported aberrant driving behaviour

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Per-Arne Rimmö; Uppsala universitet.; [1999]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Psychology; Driving behaviour; Self-reports; Errors; Violations; Personality; Factor analysis; Psykologi; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : The highly complex behaviour involved in driving a vehicle may be viewed as a form of action control in a potentially hazardous traffic system. Behavioural adaptation to the traffic system is imperfect, as is sometimes reflected in mishaps and road traffic accidents. READ MORE

  4. 4. Developing Theoretical and Empirical Definitions of Safety Problems in Driving Suitable for Active Safety Function Evaluation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mikael Ljung Aust; [2009]

    Abstract : In passive safety, the requirement specifications used for evaluation of protective functions are both standardised and specified at a high level of detail regarding evaluation scenario definition, performance metrics and pass/fail criteria. For active safety, while several propositions for evaluation scenarios have been made, neither these, nor performance metrics and pass/fail criteria have yet reached a similar level of detail and standardisation.

  5. 5. Cognitive functions in drivers with brain injury Anticipation and adaption

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Anna Lundqvist; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Brain injury; cognitive impairment; anticipatory attention; driving; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Social work Disability research; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Socialt arbete Handikappsforskning;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis was to improve the understanding of what cognitive functions are important for driving performance, investigate the impact of impaired cognitive functions on drivers with brain injury, and study adaptation strategies relevant for driving performance after brain injury. Finally, the predictive value of a neuropsychological test battery was evaluated for driving performance. READ MORE
