  1. 1. A Traffic Simulation Modeling Framework for Rural Highways

    Author : Andreas Tapani; Jan Lundgren; Karl-Lennart Bång; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Traffic; Micro; Simulation; Model; Overtaking; Speed; Headway; Rural road; Electronic driving aid; Mathematical model; Road: Traffic theory; Road: Traffic theory; Traffic Simulation; Rural Highway; Level-of-Serivice; Road safety; safety indicators; Advanced Driver Assistance Systems ADAS ; Other technology; Övriga teknikvetenskaper;

    Abstract : Models based on micro-simulation of traffic flows have proven to be useful tools in the study of various traffic systems. Today, there is a wealth of traffic microsimulation models developed for freeway and urban street networks. The road mileage is however in many countries dominated by rural highways. READ MORE

  2. 2. Having a New Pair of Glasses : Applying Systemic Accident Models on Road Safety

    Author : Yu-Hsing Huang; Erik Hollnagel; Pietro Carlo Cacciabue; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; accident model; road safety; accident prevention; accident analysis; Cognitive science; Kognitionsvetenskap;

    Abstract : The main purpose of the thesis is to discuss the accident models which underlie accident prevention in general and road safety in particular, and the consequences of relying on a particular model have for actual preventive work. The discussion centres on two main topics. READ MORE

  3. 3. Influence Of Road Feature Variables On Accident Rate

    Author : Sarbaz Najib Othman; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; safe road geometry; accident rate; black spots; accident causation; Traffic safety;

    Abstract : The main objective of this traffic safety investigation was to find critical road parameters affecting accident rate (AR). The secondary objective was to analyze any identified risk factors from a vehicle dynamics perspective. READ MORE

  4. 4. A systemic traffic accident model

    Author : Yu-Hsing Huang; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; trafikolyckor; trafiksäkerhet; traffic safety; traffic accidents; Computer science; Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Accident models are essential for all efforts in safety engineering. They influence the investigation and analysis of accidents, the assessment of systems and the development of precautions. Looking at accident statistics, the trend for Swedish roads is not pointing towards increased safety. READ MORE

  5. 5. Road Safety Development Index : Theory, Philosophy and Practice

    Author : Ghazwan Al-Haji; Kenneth Asp; Karl-Lennart Bång; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Transport; Road Traffic; Sustainability; Road safety; European research cooperation; Civil engineering and architecture; Research on Europe; Public health science; Statistics; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur;

    Abstract : This dissertation develops, presents and tests a new international tool, the so-called Road Safety Development Index (RSDI), which indicates in a comprehensive and easy way the severity of the road safety situation in a specific country and/or in comparison with other countries. There are three pillars of outcomes involved in the framework of RSDI. READ MORE
