  1. 1. Safety as a Process - From risk perception to safety activity

    Författare :Christina Stave; [2005]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; accident; safety behaviour; risk perception.; intervention; Keywords: occupational injury;

    Sammanfattning : The frequency of occupational accidents in the Swedish food industry and agriculture is high. This thesis has therefore explored the ‘process of safety’ in order to detect and analyse factors that either hinder or facilitate safety activity and to further develop intervention methods towards increased safety activity.

  2. 2. Models for tracking in automotive safety systems

    Författare :Fredrik Bengtsson; [2008]
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; motion models; active safety; vehicle tracking; Automotive; radar detections; preventive safety;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis treats the three main components of a tracking system: motion models, sensor models and implementation architecture. A tracking system utilizes models to extract as much information as possible from a set of sensors, with the purpose of estimating the state of a dynamic system. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : The overall aim of this thesis was to examine how eHomecare affects the daily lives of older users and their relatives, with a focus on safety and communication. A further aim was to explore care managers’ perspectives, expectations and experiences of eHomecare and its implementation. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Effects of Safety Measures for Pedestrians and Cyclists at Crossing Facilities on Arterial Roads

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Technology and Society, Lund University

    Författare :Mohsen Towliat; [2001]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Transport technology; arterial roads; interaction points; Keywords: traffic safety; pedestrian and cyclist safety; conflict study; behavioural study; experimental site; control site; physical measure; evaluation design; variable message sign; pedestrian and cycle crossing; speed measurement.; 30 50 road environment; Transportteknik; Road transport technology; Vägtransportteknik;

    Sammanfattning : The principal aims of this thesis are to define suitable measures for safer pedestrian and cycle crossings on arterial roads, to implement these measures on a large scale and to acquire an insight into their effects on road users' safety, experiences, mobility and the environment, by creating a 30 km/h milieu at the above crossings. Two characteristically different types of measures, physical measures and variable message signs, based on three principles, lower speed, no priority and improved and relevant information, are tested within the framework of this project.

  5. 5. Health Losses in Motorcycle Crashes - Injury Analysis of Crashes into Road Barriers and Evaluation of Antilock Braking Systems

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Technology and Society, Lund University

    Författare :Matteo Rizzi; [2014]
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Antilock Braking Systems; Powered Two Wheelers; Safety; Injury; Stability; Road Barrier; Health Loss; Crash; Motorcycle;

    Sammanfattning : Motorcycles crashes are a growing road safety problem. While the traditional safety approach has focused on protective gear and rider education, with the Vision Zero approach, the designers of the road transport system are considered responsible for its design and operation.
