A new framework for modelling road-user interaction and evaluating active safety systems
In the road transport system, cyclists account for a significant share of fatalities and serious injuries. Advance driver assistance systems (ADAS) that address potential crashes of passenger cars with cyclists are being developed and introduced to the market. Safety benefit evaluation of these ADAS is important to verify if current ADAS actually reduce real-world crashes and to determine the extent to which novel algorithms may improve current ADAS, before entering the market. ADAS safety benefit evaluation requires an agreed framework with defined concepts for target scenario specification, models of road‑user behaviour and road‑user interaction, and performance metrics.
