  1. 1. Integrated pedestrian safety assessment methodology

    Author : Nils Lübbe; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : assessment; driver behavior; comfort zone boundary; integrated safety; pedestrian; Forward Collision Warning; False Positive;

    Abstract : Pedestrian fatalities and injuries are a concern in many regions. Passive safety assessment is well established, and additional active safety assessment has recently emerged. However, assessment methods reflecting on the interaction between active and passive safety do not exist in regulatory or consumer testing. READ MORE

  2. 2. Pedestrian Shoulder and Spine Kinematics and their Influence on Head Kinematics

    Author : Ruth Paas; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : PMHS; THUMS; kinematics; spine; head; shoulder; Human Body Model; pedestrian accidents; pedestrian;

    Abstract : Pedestrian to vehicle crashes still represent a major health issue worldwide. In order to prevent fatalities and injuries during the in-crash phase of a pedestrian accident, a sound understanding of pedestrian in-crash kinematics is required and Human Body Models (HBMs) are valuable tools when studying such kinematics.

  3. 3. Urban outdoor lighting : Pedestrian perception, evaluation and behaviour in the lit environment

    Author : Johan Rahm; Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Outdoor lighting; Street lighting; Pedestrian; Walking; Walkability; Perceived safety; Urban design; Perception; Environmental psychology; Elderly; Mobility;

    Abstract : Walking plays an essential role in sustainable transport systems, as nearly all journeys in the urban environment incorporate walking in one way or another. In parts of the world, for long periods of the year, seasonal variation in daylight hours means that pedestrians must rely on outdoor lighting to make cities accessible after dark. READ MORE

  4. 4. Integrated Pedestrian Safety Assessment: A Method to Evaluate Combinations of Active and Passive Safety

    Author : Nils Lübbe; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : AEB; assessment; pedestrian; comfort boundary; driver behaviour; False Positive; integrated safety; airbag; FCW; reaction time;

    Abstract : Pedestrian road casualties are a major concern in many countries. Vehicle safety systems attempt to reduce casualties, and the accurate assessment of such systems is therefore essential. Passive safety assessment is well established, and additional active safety assessment has recently emerged. READ MORE

  5. 5. Injury Biomechanics in Car-Pedestrian Collisions: Development, Validation and Application of Human-Body Mathematical Models

    Author : Jikuang Yang; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : impact biomechanics; car; mathematical dynamic model; pedestrian; safety countermeasure;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to develop and validate human-body mathematical models which can be used to simulate the dynamic responses of pedestrians in a car impact. The main focus has been on simulations of bumper impact to the lower extremities, since lower extremity injuries most frequently occur in car-pedestrian accidents and result in long-term consequences and high social costs.
