Safe transport requires an understanding of the road user’s needs for various driving situations.
In this presentation, I will provide an overview of studies that have been done to account for the
human operator given existing transportation systems. This includes the data collection tools,
measures, and models used to capture safety. In addition, I will present the research currently
underway to account for the transportation network of the future, where humans will need to share
control of the road with automated systems.
