A new method for analysis of traffic conflict by using video drive recorders

The objective of this study is to develop a method for analyzing the causes of traffic conflicts accurately. Large-scale field tests have been carried out to collect data of traffic conflicts in naturalistic traffic situations by using 50 taxis equipped with video drive recorders (VDR) for the first time in China. The conflicts refer to crashes and near-crashes in which drivers are required a rapid, evasive operation to avoid a crash. Datainclude image of traffic environment, vehicle states and driver behaviours. Based on the natural and precise data, the interactions between driver,vehicle and environment are analyzed synthetically, and the causes of traffic conflicts are discussed. For the covering abstract see ITRD E140665.
