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...

Relying on accident records as the main data source for studying cyclists’ safety has many drawbacks, such as high degree of under-reporting, the lack of accident details and particularly of information about the interaction processes that led to the accident. It is also an ethical problem as one has to wait for accidents to happen in order to...

Purpose : Road users may be hindered by sun reflections in man built objects along the road. To assess these glare situations currently an TNO developed assessment method is used which is based on discomfort glare (TNOdiscom). This report describes the development of an alternative assessment method based on disability glare, which also takes...

Males tend to outperform females in their knowledge of relative and absolute distances in spatial layouts and environments. It is unclear yet in how far these differences are innate or develop through life. The aim of the present study was to investigate whether gender differences in configurational knowledge for a natural environment might be...

Ondanks het feit dat de afstand tussen een geel en rood sein volgens ProRail ontwerpvoorschrift OVS69133-1 minimaal 400 meter moet zijn (gelijk aan de remweg van 40 km/u naar 0 km/uur van de slechts beremde trein), bevinden zich in Nederland situaties waar seinen op minder dan 400 meter van elkaar staan. Er is dan sprake van een ‘kort blok’. Om...

The minimum lane width of distributor roads (in Dutch: gebiedsontsluitingswegen GOW) are a concern for the province of Zuid-Holland. In particular since the lineation is regularly crossed by truck drivers. This also counts for car drivers when encountering oncoming trucks. The province of Zuid-Holland therefore wanted to know whether the...

In 2017 zullen de communicatiesystemen in de Westerscheldetunnel (WST), die in 2003 is geopend, worden vervangen. In aanloop hiernaar wordt ook bekeken of andere technische installaties, zoals de verlichting, mogelijk vervangen en/of aangepast dienen te worden. TNO heeft, aan de hand van lichtmetingen en een wegbeeldanalyse in de Oostelijke en...

In driver behaviour research there is considerable focus on distraction caused by specific external systems, such as navigation systems or mobile telephones. However, it is not clear whether self-paced actions such as daydreaming have the same negative effects on driving behaviour. In a driving simulator study, the effects of an internal...

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...
