With 21,000 people annually killed in road traffic (estimated figure by World Health Organization), Bangladesh has one of the highest fatality rates in the world. Vulnerable road users (VRUs) account for over 50% of road traffic casualties, and 70% of casualties occur in rural areas. As in many Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs), the...

TNO conducted long-term video observations to collect data on the pre-crash phase of real accidents (what exactly happened just before the collision?). The video recordings of collisions were used to evaluate and validate the safety value of in-depth accident analyses, road scene analyses, and behavioural observations (including traffic...

Met het al maar drukker worden op de weg en met verwoede pogingen om het maximale uit het bestaande wegverkeerssysteem te halen, wordt de rijtaak voor de automobilist steeds complexer en wordt het des te belangrijker om in het weg- en verkeersontwerp de mens als de maat der dingen te beschouwen. Succesvolle introductie van nieuwe...

Succesvolle introductie van nieuwe bestuurdersondersteunende systemen, dynamische verkeersmanagementsystemen of complexe wegontwerpen hangt sterk af van hoe mensen ermee kunnen en willen omgaan. Rijsimulatorstudies maken het mogelijk ontwerpen / systemen vooraf te testen en te beoordelen. Met het al maar drukker worden op de weg en met verwoede...
