Tesla's Full Self-Driving Beta (FSD) program introduces technology that extends the operational design domain of standard Autopilot from highways to urban roads. This research conducted 103 in-depth semi-structured interviews with users of Tesla's FSD Beta and standard Autopilot to evaluate the impact on user behavior and perception. It was...

Current indicators for measuring traffic safety such as fatalities and severe injuries are lagging indicators, meaning that an accident first needs to happen before it can be measured. With the rise of automation in vehicles, the opportunity may arise to measure leading indicators. These can proactively measure traffic safety by measuring...

Mobility of disabled people has as a basic guarantee the traffic safety. Walking for disabled may have improved considerably compared to the past, but there are stillissues such as the safe crossing at signalized crosswalks. Also, the availability of studies on safe crossing for disabled pedestrians is limited. While it has been understood how...

Traffic safety is arguably the most important traffic metric from a human perspective. Still, many millions of people are killed on roads every year. In this paper, the concept of Herd Immunity for Traffic Safety (HITS) is presented for the first time. This concept focuses on identifying and describing the increased level of safety that is...

Advanced driver assistance systems such as adaptive cruise control (ACC) and lane keeping system (LKS) potentially contribute to reducing crash rates and traffic congestion. On-road studies based on early ACC systems operational at medium–high speeds only have shown that the system reduces the proportion of short time gaps when activated....

Microsimulation can substantiate traffic safety analysis. The questions is how to use the information from microsimulation to say something about the general safety at network level. The objective of this research is to find out how microsimulation can be used to quantify traffic safety at a network level. For this, the surrogate safety...

The Netherlands faces the challenge, especially in the coming years, of coping with the continuous increase in traffic volumes and reducing the number of road casualties. A way to tackle this challenge is by constructing unconventional (American) designs, which aim to reduce travel time and improve traffic safety by rerouting left-turns. This...

With the increasing research of autonomous vehicles coming closer to introduction in society, it is necessary to research the effects on traffic safety for the introduction of these types of vehicles for rural roads. A lot of research has been done for the introduction of AVs on highway roads, researching the introduction for rural roads is the...

The present research aims to understand the safety over the midblock road sections and proposes a safety framework using the conventional Time to Collision (TTC) measure. In the present work, the safety framework underlines a supporting structure connecting the actions of the surrounding vehicles and assesses the collisions changes for a given...

The emergence of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) could have a significant impact on traffic efficiency and safety. The effects of CAVs in regular highway traffic are relatively well represented in scientific research. How these effects change in exceptional situations, such as work zones, and how the infrastructure can influence these...

The objective of this research is to explore the relation between personal characteristics of pedestrians and their crossing behaviour in front of an automated vehicle (AV). For this purpose, a simulation experiment was developed using Agent-Based Modelling (ABM) techniques. Sixty participants were asked to cross the road in a virtual...

Dedicated Lanes (DLs) have been proposed as a potential scenario for the deployment of Automated and/or Connected Vehicles (C/AVs) on the road network. However, evidence-based knowledge regarding the impacts of different design configurations, utilization policies, and the design of their access/egress on traffic safety and efficiency is...

The inclusion of human factors (HF) in mathematical models is proving crucial to allow complex driving behaviour and interactions to be explicitly considered to capture driving phenomena. An important area where such integration is required is for the role of anticipation by drivers to compensate for critical traffic situations. In this paper...

We present a simulation-based approach to assess the safety impacts of vehicles equipped with Automated Driving Systems (ADS) in mixed traffic with Human-driven Vehicles (HV). Specifically, we compare two generic longitudinal strategies of ADS to handle a cut-in: Reactive ADS acting only when the cut-in vehicle crosses the target lane boundary,...

The most common way to evaluate traffic safety is investigating the occurrence and severity of crashes using historical data. This approach however has a number of limitations, the most important of which is probably its reactive nature. An alternative method using non-crash events has gained a lot of attention recently, especially thanks to the...

Tram is a sustainable mode of transport, which is able to transform the modern city centers through the various urban regeneration projects that usually come together with it. Tram tracks are often shared with either motorized traffic or pedestrians/cyclists. In this mixed traffic reality, tram accidents are very rare but severe at the same time...

By means of a driving simulator experiment and an accident data analysis, this research focuses on two points: (1) an expected difference in turbulence between major fork configurations that differ in the number of mandatory lane changes for rightmost traffic going to the left-diverging roadway, and (2) an expected difference in driver...

Human Factors issues with automated driving systems (ADS) are becoming more apparent with the increasing prevalence of automated vehicles on the public roads. As automated driving demands increased performance of supervisory skills of the driver, rather than vehicle handling skills, a mismatch occurs between the demand and supply of the drivers’...
