Effect of intelligent transport systems on traffic safety

DOI: 10.3846/bjrbe.2016.16
 
One of the biggest problems of constantly growing transport sector is traffic safety. Innovative technologies are an effective tool to deal with the following issue. In order to ensure efficient and coordinated development of intelligent transport systems, it is essential to know their individual performance and impact on traffic safety. This article gives the summary of the effect of intelligent transport systems on road traffic safety. The aim of the research is to highlight intelligent transport systems and intelligent transport systems applications which have the greatest positive impact on traffic safety. To achieve this aim, meta-analysis of previous studies and analysis of experts interviews was carried out. The research consider the following thirteen driver support and control systems regarding their potentials to reduce the number of fatalities: average speed control system, stationary speed cameras, “Alcolock” ‒ application of drunk driver detection, “eCall” system, variable speed limit sign, red light violation detection cameras, forbidden maneuver detection system, vehicle identification system, variable message boards, intelligent road studs, incident detection system, weighin- motion system and seat belt control system.
 
Keywords: intelligent transport systems (ITS), road accidents, road fatalities, Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) method.
