  1. 1. Speed Choice The Driver, the Road and Speed Limits

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mats Haglund; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Psychology; Driving behaviour; Speed choice; Risk estimates; Enforcement; Attitudes; Psykologi; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : Speed choice is one of the more characteristic features of driver behaviour. The speed a driver chooses to travel at determines the degree of difficulty he or she operates under. Higher speeds lead to more accidents, higher accident risk and more severe consequences of an accident. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evaluation of Variable Speed Limits Empirical Evidence and Simulation Analysis of Stockholm’s Motorway Control System

    Abstract : Variable Speed Limits (VSL) are often used to improve traffic conditions on congested motorways. VSL can be implemented as mandatory or advisory. The objective of the thesis isto study in detail the effectiveness of VSL. The focus is on both, design parameters and conditions under which VSL are most effective. READ MORE

  3. 3. Impacts of Speed Limits and Information Systems on Speed Choice from a Safety Perspective

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ary P. Silvano; KTH.; [2013]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; speed choice; urban; roads; speed limits; road characteristics; traffic safety; cooperative systems and warning messages;

    Abstract : Driving a vehicle is considered a demanding task in a complex dynamic environment. For instance, driving a vehicle on urban roads, where motorized vehicles meet vulnerable road users (VRUs) creates a multifaceted environment with difficult trade-offs and interactions. READ MORE

  4. 4. Loyal Speed Adaptation Speed limitation by means of an active accelerator and its possible impacts in built-up areas

    University dissertation from Traffic Engineering

    Author : Sverker Almqvist; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; active accelerator; LSA; speed; speed reduction; driver behaviour; traffic safety; ISA; Teknik; Technological sciences; Road transport technology; Vägtransportteknik;

    Abstract : Traditional measures for improved traffic safety need to be complemented by modern technologies in the struggle to reduce the consequences of traffic accidents all over the world. This thesis introduces the Loyal Speed Adaptation (LSA) function based on recent developments in the area of Intelligent Transport Sys-tems to support the vehicle drivers in not using inappropriate or excessive speeds, which have been found to be an important factor for causing serious and fatal accidents.

  5. 5. Advancing Traffic Safety An evaluation of speed limits, vehicle-bicycle interactions, and I2V systems

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Ary Pezo Silvano; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Traffic safety; urban roads; posted speed limits; road characteristics; free-flow speed; time headway; vehicle-bicycle interactions; logit model; yielding probability; cooperative systems and warning messages.; Transportvetenskap; Transport Science;

    Abstract : Since the introduction of motor vehicles, the number of fatalities and accidents has been a concern for society.The number of fatalities on roads is amongst the most common causes of mortality worldwide (WHO, 2015).Even in industrialized countries the number of fatalities remains unacceptable.
