  1. 1. Towards computational models for road-user interaction: Drivers overtaking pedestrians and cyclists

    Författare :Alexander Rasch; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; active safety; vulnerable road users; cyclist safety; driver models; interaction models; overtaking; Euro NCAP; driver behavior; Pedestrian safety;

    Sammanfattning : Introduction: Crashes resulting from a failed interaction between drivers and vulnerable road users, such as pedestrians or cyclists, can lead to severe injuries or fatalities, especially after failed overtaking maneuvers on rural roads where designated refuge areas are often absent, and impact speeds high. This thesis contains two studies that shed light on driver interaction with either 1) a pedestrian or 2) a cyclist, and oncoming traffic while overtaking. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Making overtaking cyclists safer: Driver intention models in threat assessment and decision-making of advanced driver assistance system

    Författare :Prateek Thalya; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :Cyclist; Euro NCAP; Overtaking; ADAS; Driver intention; Interaction;

    Sammanfattning : Introduction: The number of cyclist fatalities makes up 3% of all fatalities globally and 7.8% in the European Union. Cars overtaking cyclists on rural roads are complex situations. Miscommunication and misunderstandings between road users may lead to crashes and severe injuries, particularly to cyclists, due to lack of protection. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Microscopic traffic simulation has proven to be a useful tool for analysis of varioustraffic systems. This thesis consider microscopic traffic simulation of rural roads andthe use of traffic simulation for evaluation of driver assistance systems. LÄS MER

  4. 4. A model for simulation and generation of surrounding vehicles in driving simulators

    Författare :Johan Olstam; Jan Lundgren; Pontus Matstoms; Stéphane Espié; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Traffic; Simulation; Model; Traffic flow; Vehicle; Micro; Overtaking; Vehicle spacing; Deceleration; Acceleration; Mathematical model; Simulator; Road: Traffic theory; Road: Traffic theory; Technology; Traffic Simulation; Driving Simulator; Traffic Generation; Microscopic; Traffic models; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Driving simulators are used to conduct experiments on for example driver behavior, road design, and vehicle characteristics. The results of the experiments often depend on the traffic conditions. One example is the evaluation of cellular phones and how they affect driving behavior. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Railway operation analysis : Evaluation of quality, infrastructure and timetable on single and double-track lines with analytical models and simulation

    Författare :Olov Lindfeldt; Bo-Lennart Nelldal; Lars-Göran Mattsson; Ingo Hansen; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Railway operation; Railway capacity; Single-track; Double-track; Partial double-track; Inter-station distance; Delay; Delay propagation; Crossing; Overtaking; Timetable flexibility; Simulation; Experimental design; Civil engineering and architecture; Samhällsbyggnadsteknik och arkitektur;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis shows the advantages of simple models for analysis of railway operation. It presents two tools for infrastructure and timetable planning. It shows how the infrastructure can be analysed through fictive line designs, how the timetable can be treated as a variable and how delays can be used as performance measures. LÄS MER
