Development of an in-vehicle warning system for railway level crossings

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter or book articleProfessional

Abstract

Level crossing accidents are an existing traffic safety problem for road users and a major safety issue for railways [1-2]. The developed in-vehicle warning system aims to reduce the number of accidents at level crossings by increasing the alertness and awareness of the car driver approaching a level crossing [3]. The system is expected to improve safety especially at passive level crossings with occasional vehicle drivers where existing safety measures for level crossings are expensive to implement. The main objectives of the project were to study the technical functionality, reliability and dependability and socio-economic benefits and costs of the system as well as user experience and potential other application areas and business models [4].
