Simulation of behavioural aspects for safer transport

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

The goal of SIMUSAFE (SIMUlator of Behavioural Aspects for SAFEr Transport) is to develop realistic multi-agent behavioural models in a transit environment, following the FESTA-V model methodology where researchers will be able to monitor and introduce changes in every aspect, gathering data not available in real world conditions. Driving simulators of several vehicles (cars, motorcycles, bicycles) and Virtual Reality (for pedestrians) will be used to simulate test environments. This will also enable the evaluation of scenarios which are not possible even with naturalistic driving (dangerous conditions, multiple monitored actors in the same scene, under influence of substances) whilst obtaining biometric data.

Layman's description

SIMUSAFE aims to improve driving simulator and traffic simulation technology to safely assess risk perception and decision making of road users, including; pedestrians, cyclists, motorcyclists and powered two wheelers, and car drivers.
