The goal of the present study was to explore how simulator motion cuing affects the driver's control performance of a car. Steering behavior was used as a measure of control performance. The experimental task was a slalom maneuver in which the velocity of the car was limited to 70 km/h. Subjective and objective variables were measured. The paper...

With increasing traffic demands and various attempts to get maximum performance out of the road traffic system, the driving task is becoming more and more complex, and the more important it is to consider the human factor in highway design and operation. Successful introduction of new driver support systems, dynamic traffic management systems,...

Naturalistic driving studies are increasingly applied in different shapes and sizes. The European project PROLOGUE has investigated the value and feasibility of a large-scale naturalistic driving study in Europe. Within PROLOGUE several pilot studies have been conducted in different countries. The Dutch field trial investigated the value and...

Many books focus on individual differences and how those relate to traffic safety, such as accident proneness, gender differences, age, alcohol, and the effects of drugs. Others focus on the safety effects regarding the vehicle, such as airbags, anti-lock brakes, navigation systems, intelligent cruise control and other new gadgets coming...

More than half of all severe traffic accidents in which pedestrians or cyclists are involved, occur during road crossing. In this chapter insights, based on previous studies and literature, concerning requirements for safe and comfortable crossing facilities are discussed. In order to develop notions of needs, abilities and motives, different...

Driver distraction and mental workload are two constructs that are closely related, but which are affected by different aspects of the driving situation and may also have different effects on driving performance. This chapter introduces the concept of latent driver distraction, a form of driver distraction that does not materialise in measurably...

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...

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...

The urban expansion, the motorization, the work and shopping concentration in the cities outskirts have caused a constant increase in the travelling distances. Therefore, walking is getting more and more difficult and dangerous. On the other hand, there is a great diversity of pedestrians with different requests or needs when using the urban and...

Duidelijk is dat sommige weggebruikers moeite hebben met het vinden van hun weg in de nieuwe situatie op de Randweg Eindhoven. De vraag is wat de oorzaak is van deze problematiek. Zaken die hierbij mogelijk een rol spelen zijn de begrijpelijkheid van de aangebrachte bewegwijzering, wellicht in samenhang met de lay-out en het precieze wegverloop...

In 2009 a disproportional number of single-vehicle accidents turned out to occur on one carriageway of the Honingerdijk in Rotterdam (in the direction of the city centre). Consequently, a number of measures have been implemented in order to reduce the number and severity of these accidents. These measures, however, should be considered as...

The connection between the N11 and the A12 is not been designed as a complete junction. The connection N11-A12 in western direction yields primarily problems at the exit on the N11 to the N459. Studies have indicated that, besides other measures, reconstructing the Fortuynrotonde near Reeuwijk into a star-roundabout provides more capacity which...

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