A Decision Support System for Analysis of Vulnerable Road Users Safety Issues: Results of the SAFERBRAIN Project

SaferBraIn (an EC-funded project within the FP7) aims at increasing the level of safety of the road transport systems, focussing on Vulnerable Road Users (VRUs) in India and Brazil. A Decision Support System (DSS) ([Geographic Information System (GIS)]-based application) is developed to select safety measures to reduce risk of accidents of VRUs, realize corrective and preventive analyses and road safety audits. The “corrective module” relies with analyses of VRUs accident data, identification of causes of accidents, possible countermeasures basing on Cost-Benefit and Cost-Effectiveness Analyses and monitoring of results. The “preventive module” realises road safety inspections and audits with a special focus on VRUs.
