The aim of the BikeSAFER project is to collect and analyze naturalistic cycling data. Analyses focus on interaction among road users, cyclist behavior, and accident causation. Results from BikeSAFER will be used as use cases to motivate and guide the development of new intelligent applications, possibly cooperative, to increase traffic safety.
