ESR4. Effects of road surface characteristics & geometries on Safer Users' Behaviour (SaferUB)

Objectives:

To improve road safety (accident risks & vehicle stability) by the analysis of users’ behaviour (cyclists & drivers) with simulators. Road and pavement characteristics (in different weather conditions) are considered (skid-resistance, profile, alignment) for better simulations and modelling. Comparison with real driving conditions (instrumented bike, car).

  • Task 4.1: accident analysis and investigation on most relevant urban accident types, their causes and consequences.
  • Task 4.2: identification of different users’ driving styles (by vehicle dynamics) and active safety functions/systems.
  • Task 4.3: road pavement design from vehicle-infrastructure interaction in different climatic conditions.
  • Task 4.4: new algorithms for different urban scenarios and road safety classification. Visibility and legibility assessment.


Expected Results:

  • Improving road safety by the simulation analysis of road and pavement characteristics and their influence on users’ behaviour.
  • Increased safety for disabled & elderly users.
  • Improving pavements design in terms of users’ perception and legibility.
  • Enhanced driver-vehicle-road interaction models for better simulations and dynamics.
