ABSTRACT

About 30% of pedestrian victims of road accidents in Poland are hit on marked pedestrian crossings. The aim of this project is to develop and test a method of assessing safety of pedestrian road crossings using automatic video image analysis. The method will be based on detecting traffic conflicts between pedestrians and vehicles. Such conflicts are much more frequent than accidents and therefore assessments can be made based on relatively short observation periods. During the project, six field tests will be conducted on different crossing types. Statistical analysis of conflicts will result in an objective evaluation of measures used to improve pedestrian safety. Promoting best practices will lead to a reduction of the numbers of pedestrians killed or injured on Polish roads. Lower number of victims means reduction in social costs and human suffering but also savings to the state budget.
