Period
2010-01-01 - 2014-12-31

The overall objective of QUADRA is to develop and verify quantitative models of driver behavior, which can be applied within industry and academia in computer simulations with the purpose of evaluating, verifying and/or tuning active safety systems. Planned project duration is 4 years, and planned start is September 2009.

Project
QUADRA - Quantitative Driver Behavior Modeling for Active Safety Assessment (A15)
Two experiments were carried out in a moving-base simulator, in which truck drivers of varying experience levels encountered a rear-end collision scenario on a low-friction road surface, with and without an electronic stability control (ESC) system.
