Crash Analysis and Prevention

The mission of the research area on crash analysis and prevention is to understand why crashes happen and how they can be prevented. This includes understanding crash causation mechanisms related to the road-user behaviour as well as vehicle and environment factors. Strategies of risk exposure reduction in normal driving and threat avoidance in conflicts are used to prevent crashes. We leverage on deep understanding of these strategies to build effective driver support, active safety, and vehicle automation. We evaluate these strategies using conceptual and mathematical models developed with naturalistic and experimental data. 

We aspire to be the premiere group that combines behavioural science, neuroscience, and engineering to make vehicle technology work for people. We lead vehicle safety innovation by bringing members from academia and industry together and foster outstanding students.
