  1. 1. A method for analysing the traffic process in a safety perspective

    Author : Åse Svensson; Trafik och väg; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; intermediate method; Accidents; pedestrian safety; safety hierarchy; severity; traffic conflicts; interaction; road user behaviour; traffic safety; traffic process; time to accidents; safety indicators; surrogate measures;

    Abstract : The aim of this study is to extend the traffic safety assessment concept to also include normal road user behaviour, thus not only exceptional behaviours such as accidents and serious conflicts. The goal is to provide a framework for a more thorough description and analysis of safety related road user behaviour in order to better understand the traffic safety processes. READ MORE

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

    Author : Azra Habibovic; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : 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

  3. 3. Predicting Safety Benefits of Automated Emergency Braking at Intersections - Virtual simulations based on real-world accident data

    Author : Ulrich Sander; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; injury mitigation; market penetration; accident avoidance; junction; V2X; straight crossing path; AEB; Intersection; left turn across path;

    Abstract : Introduction: Intersections are a global traffic safety concern. In the United States, around half of all fatal road traffic accidents take place at intersections or were related to them. In the European Union, about one fifth of road traffic fatalities occur at intersections. READ MORE

  4. 4. Towards Crash-Free Driving: Opportunities and Limitations of Automated Emergency Braking in Intersections

    Author : Ulrich Sander; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; AEB; left turn across path; V2X communication; Intersection; accident avoidance; straight crossing path; automated emergency braking; market penetration; injury mitigation; junction;

    Abstract : Intersections are a global traffic safety concern. In the Unites States, about half of the fatal road traffic accidents take place at intersections or were related to them. In the European Union, about one fifth of the road traffic fatalities occur at intersections. READ MORE

  5. 5. Vehicle Dynamics Control for Active Safety Functions using Electrified Drivelines

    Author : Adithya Arikere; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; driver assistance systems; intersection accidents; torque vectoring; optimal control; rear- end collisions; speed control; active safety; vehicle dynamics; electrified drivetrain; obstacle avoidance with oncoming traffic;

    Abstract : Studies have shown that even considering pledges and commitments made by various governments and organisations, the growth in electrified vehicle sales is likely to be insufficient to reduce CO2 emissions for mitigating global warming. Some form of added incentive is needed that can help drive electrified vehicle sales in the open market. READ MORE
