HUMAN ERROR AND RISK MANAGEMENT APPROACHES TO COST-EFFECTIVENESS AND DECISION MAKING IN INTELLIGENT TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION
In this dissertation, the author present a cost-effectiveness methodology for assisting a decision maker in assessing Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) alternatives for potential development. The concepts of driver error, equity, and risk management are used in the evaluation of ITS . The author examines the major factors which interact with an ITS. The concept of driver culture is defined. Driver errors are studied and ITS technologies are proposed to ameliorate the errors. The author concludes with a discussion regarding how the proposed model can be incorporated into the fragmented decision making structure that accompanies the transportation decision making process.
