URBanIST: Detecting the intentions of cyclists in traffic
[Swedish title] Uppmärksamhet hos bilförare i möte med oskyddade trafikanter
(As principal investigator) The purpose of this project is to determine the information that drivers attend to when they detect and predict the behavior of cyclists in traffic situations. We use recorded realistic traffic situations and ask observers to predict the actions of cyclists. We also measure driver responses in traffic situations in a driving simulator evnironment.
This project is financed ($125K, 875tkr) by the research division of the Swedish insurance company: Länsförsäkringsbolagens forskningsfond AB.
(As principal investigator) This project includes Mikael Johannesson, Mikael Lebram, Fredrik Eriksson and Kristoffer Ekman. It is a continuation of the research on obtaining a model of driver attention for the signals that characterize the behavior of cyclists in traffic situations such as crossing at crosswalks. The financing is for 1 million Swedish Crowns (approx. 150,000 USD and will continue through 2013.
