  1. 1. Safety Evaluation of Road Characteristics

    Author : Sarbaz Najib Othman; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Accident data; FOT data; Overtaking maneuvers; Road safety; PC-Crash; Critical road parameters; Horizontal curves;

    Abstract : Accidents are rare and widely distributed on the road network, which poses a challenge for road safety improvement. Traditional methods alone, such as accident analyses and experimental studies, do not explain all accident causation factors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Identifying the Potential of Combined Road Safety Interventions - A Method to Evaluate Future Effects of Integrated Road and Vehicle Safety Technologies

    Author : Johan Strandroth; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Evaluation; Road Safety Management; Autonomous Emergency Braking; Safety Performance Indicators; System Approach; Prediction; Integrated Safety; Vehicle Safety Technology;

    Abstract : Health loss in the road transport system is one of the leading global public health problems with approximately 1.3 million people killed annually. In order to have a systematical approach to improved road safety, it has become common practice to form road safety management policies that include target setting and evaluation. READ MORE
