Impacts of Speed Limits and Information Systems on Speed Choice from a Safety Perspective.
2013 (English)Licentiate thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
Driving a vehicle is considered a demanding task in a complex dynamic environment. For instance, driving a vehicle on urban roads, where motorized vehicles meet vulnerable road users (VRUs) creates a multifaceted environment with difficult trade-offs and interactions. Additionally, in-vehicle technology developments are being introduced to ease drivers with the driving task. However, these developments are changing “traditional” driving increasing drivers’ response in terms of information processing, thus making the driving task more demanding in some respects. Therefore, the aim of the present research is to further investigate drivers’ speed choice under varying traffic management regulations and in-vehicle warning systems.
