  1. 1. Examining factors for low use behavior of Advanced Driving Assistance Systems

    University essay from Linköpings universitet/Institutionen för datavetenskap

    Author : Kajsa Emanuelsson; [2020]
    Keywords : ADAS; Adaptive Cruise Control; Lane Keep Assist; low usage;

    Abstract : Advanced Driving Assistance Systems (ADAS) has the potential to decrease the number of fatal accidents in traffic. However, in some cases, drivers with the systems in their car are resistant against using them. Exploring the underlying reasons and factors of the low-usage of ADAS was the purpose of this thesis.

  2. 2. Analysis and Simulation Study of Stochastic Time-To-Collision as a Severity Measure in Traffic Security

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Author : Per Niklas Benzler Waaler; [2020]
    Keywords : time; collision; ttc; stochastic; probability; transform; transformation; traffic; data; under; estimation; post; encroachment; mixture; distribution; simulation; study; encounter; conflict; trajectory; prediction; road; user; safety; severity; surrogate; measure; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Abstract : Traffic accidents are extremely rare, creating the need for surrogate methods for safety analysis that makes efficient use of the information provided by traffic conflicts, which also are limited in availability. The severity measure time-to-collision (TTC) in combination with extreme value theory have so far been one of the primary measures used to infer traffic safety levels, but it relies on unrealistic assumptions that results in severity measures that do not always agree well with observed danger.
