Driving Characteristics of Older Drivers and Their Relationship to the Useful Field of...

To maintain the mobility of older people in later life, it is essential to sustain their autonomy; however, driving is a complex task, requiring a large range of visual, psychomotor and cognitive abilities. Subsequently, a key issue is to measure...

On road driving assessment in Sweden: results from the SafeMove project

I detta notat presenteras resultat från en delstudie inom forskningsprojektet Safe Mobility for Older Drivers (Safemove). Ett körtest på väg visade att det var främst anpassning av fart och brist på uppmärksamhet som skapade problem för förarna. 42...

Challenging situations, self-reported driving habits and capacity among older drivers...

Många äldre slutar att köra bil för att de blir mer ängsliga i samband med bilkörning. Att införa förebyggande åtgärder, till exempel fortbildningskurser eller utveckling av förarstödssystem, kan vara en lösning enligt detta notat. Forskare på VTI...

Older drivers’ needs for safety and comfort systems in their cars: a focus group study in...

Resultaten av den här VTI-studien visar att äldre förare är positiva till förarstödssystem, men har svårigheter att se att deras åldrande påverkar körningen. Risken är att äldre inte inser att reducerad uppmärksamhetsförmåga kräver att de ändrar...

Safe mobility for elderly drivers: Considerations based on expert and self-assessment

To further understand the needs of the growing population of elderly drivers and create solutions for safe mobility it is important to understand the driving scenarios and aspects in day to day traffic that may be of challenge for this group. More...

The effect of different delineator post configurations on driver speed in night-time...

The aim of the study was to investigate how different delineator post configurations affect driver speed in night-time traffic. In addition, the potential speed effect of introducing a secondary task was investigated. The study was carried out in a...

Usability of the SAFEWAY2SCHOOL system in children with cognitive disabilities

SAFEWAY2SCHOOL is a programme based on several systems for the enhancement of school transportation safety for children. The aim of the study was to explore whether children with cognitive disabilities will notice, realise, understand, trust and...

Effects of electronic billboards on driver distraction.

OBJECTIVE: There is an increase in electronic advertising billboards along major roads, which may cause driver distraction due to the highly conspicuous design of the electronic billboards. Yet limited research on the impact of electronic billboards...

Measuring driver impairments: Sleepiness, distraction, and workload

Snow was falling heavily when Sarah was driving on a slippery road to her cousin’s country cottage. It was dark outside, and the visibility was poor. She had planned to arrive before sunset, but the rental service had made a mistake, and it took...

Comparison of eye tracking systems with one and three cameras

When using eye movements to determine the state of a car driver it is important that the eye tracker is robust, unobtrusive, inexpensive and fully automatic. The objectives of this study are to compare the performance of a one-camera system with a...

Is European school transport safe?: the need for a "door-to-door" perspective

Purpose To identify and establish the number and aetiology behind children being killed or injured during school transport from a door-to-door perspective by using experience from Sweden and the UK.Methods Available crash data were analysed. Results...

Pilot plans

The current Deliverable outlines the actual planning for the execution of the SAFEWAY2SCHOOL Pilots and is prepared in the context of WP7: “Verification Pilots evaluation” and specifically A7.1: “Evaluation Framework”. Pilots are experiments with...

Ansvar och roller vid skolskjutsning: en fördjupad analys genom gruppdiskussioner

There is a need to increase knowledge about different actors' (municipality, school, bus driver/contractor and parents) view of their role in relation to school transport. The present study aims to create a more detailed description about the...

Comparison and analysis of user and stakeholder needs across different countries

The current deliverable aims at presenting the results of the analysis of stakeholder needs, in order to have support for selecting the most relevant use cases. For the identification of user requirements of all stakeholders relevant to school...

Performance of a one-camera and a three-camera system

Driving and operating a vehicle is to a great extent a visual task. In driver behaviour studies it is therefore important to be able to measure where the driver is looking. Today this can be done unobtrusively and remotely in real-time with camera...

Piloting smart safe school bus: exploration of security gains from implementation of a...

Purpose: Road crash statistics reveal that school children are frequent victims and the most risky situation is when the child is outside the bus. The aim of this pilot study was to explore possible changes in speed, implementation of routines,...

Selection of operator support systems across modes

This Deliverable provides an outline of the process involved in task 2.2 of the ITERATE project forselecting an appropriate set of hypotheses to be tested inWorkpackages 3 (Experimental design andscenario specification), and 4 (Experimental...

Specification of test procedures for the simulator experiments

In Deliverable 3.1 of Workpackage 3, we discuss the methodology developed and applied in the European ITERATEproject (IT for Error Remediation And Trapping Emergencies). This methodology has as its objective to design experiments that will provide...
