This paper presents the results of a safety impact assessment, providing quantitative estimates of the safety impacts of ten intelligent transport systems (ITS) which were designed to improve safety, mobility and comfort of vulnerable road users (VRUs). The evaluation method originally developed to assess safety impacts of ITS for cars was now...

In The Netherlands, on bicycle paths, single-bicycle accidents, bicycle-bicycle and bicycle-moped accidents constitute a considerable share of all bicyclist injuries. Over three quarters of all hospitalised bicyclist victims in the Netherlands cannot be directly related to a crash with motorised traffic. As the usage of bicycle paths steadily...

Quiet vehicles may be noticed relatively late and therefore constitute a potential risk for vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and bicyclists. The ideal acoustic warning signal generator notifies vulnerable road users while minimizing noise pollution. Several sensor systems exist which are able to reveal the position of the vulnerable...

Accidents with hazardous materials may threaten the lives of people living in the direct environment of the transportation infrastructure. In many countries, fire brigades play a major role in advising the authorities when they are dealing with issues where hazardous materials are involved. Since emergency responders have to deal with injured...

Uit de praktijk blijkt dat de ontwerpeisen met betrekking tot de vormgeving en inrichting van horizontale bogen tot grote misverstanden en fouten leiden. De huidige situatie leidt tot onduidelijke regelgeving, kans op fouten, verkeerde afwegingen, onnodige verkeersonveiligheid of mogelijk tot inefficiënt ruimtegebruik. Ook is het van belang om...

The main objective of the project PROLOGUE (PROmoting real Life Observations for Gaining Understanding of road user behaviour in Europe) is to explore the feasibility and usefulness of a large-scale European naturalistic driving observation study. The work described in this deliverable focused on the feasibility of using and combining two...

In the design and development of advanced vehicle control systems such as X-by-Wire (XBW), system safety is a crucial aspect. Failures in XBW can easily result in accidents. Therefore, methods and tools are needed to ensure fault-tolerant systems. Quantifying the consequence of an error is far from trivial, since the consequence is determined...

This paper describes an integrated design and implementation framework for cognitive models in complex task environments. We propose a task- and humancentered development methodology for deriving the cognitive models, and present a goal-based framework for implementing them. We illustrate our approach by modelling cognitive lockup as an error...

This paper presents a method that has enabled us to make a selection of error types and error production mechanisms relevant to the HUMAN European project, and discusses the reasons underlying those choices. We claim that this method has the advantage that it is very exhaustive in determining the relevant error types and error production...

Peaks in workload while driving might have immediate safety implications. The Peripheral Detection Task (PDT) has shown to be a sensitive objective workload measure. Drivers have to respond to the onset of a peripherally presented simple visual stimulus (red square or LED) by pressing a finger switch, on average, once every 4 seconds. The more...

Op overpaden bij stations steken voetgangers en/of fietsers soms toch over bij geactiveerd overpad. Voor ProRail heeft TNO onderzocht of het aanbrengen van hangwerken onder de spoorbomen en het beter laten aansluiten van hekwerken bij de overweginstallatie hielpen in het terugdringen van onveilig oversteekgedrag van voetgangers en/of fietsers....

Research and societal questions in the area of mobility are becoming more and more complex, covering many different aspects of the traffic system. Simulation tools are an important aid in the study of such questions. Their complexity requires an integrated mixed reality environment, in which the tools are connected to each other and to external...

In a psychophysical experiment the adequate luminous intensities for traffic lights were measured as function of time of day, colour, size and three perception criteria minimum, optimum, and maximum. By day the traffic lights were adjusted at average luminous intensities of 124 cd, 369 cd, and 616 cd for the perception criteria minimum, optimum,...

The aim of the European research project SAFESPOT is to prevent road accidents by developing a Safety Margin Assistant that extends the drivers´ awareness in space and time. One application of the Safety Margin Assistant is the Intelligent coopeRative Intersection Safety system (IRIS). IRIS will identify safety critical situations at...

This paper describes the Human-Machine-Interface (HMI) design approach for the integration of several cooperative systems that were developed in the projects CVIS and SAFESPOT. In this design approach, several important issues for integrated HMI were accounted for: the prioritization of the information for the highest safety relevance, the...
