“How new technologies and big data may improve cycling safety’’
Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences
Chalmers University of Technology, Goteborg, Sweden
Abstract: In this talk, Marco will present some results from cycling safety research within the Road-user/Vehicle Interaction group at Chalmers University of Technology. These results will serve as examples to highlight the potential for new intelligent communication technology and large dataset of naturalistic data to improve cycling safety.
