Autonomous driving and possible outcome for bicyclists: Technology which helps to identify hazards

Abstract [en]

Cycling is an increasingly popular alternative transport mode, but there were far too many cycling fatalities over the past decade (European Transport Safety Council 2015). 138,400 pedestrians & cyclists were killed in EU in the space of time from 2001 to 2013. According to recent safety analysis data from ETSC (2015) bicyclists face a high accident risk. Vulnerable road users account for 29% of all road deaths across EU (pedestrians: 21%, cyclists: 8%).

According to a TRL report (Knowles et al 2008) more than a quarter of all cycling deaths in 2005-07 happened when a vehicle ran into the rear of a bike. This occurred to more than one-third in rural areas and to 40% in collisions that took place away from junctions. According to the same report it seemed that one cause for cyclists´ accidents was that car drivers as well as cyclists “failed to look properly” as was the interpretation in the TRL report. Therefore, it is necessary to find out how traffic safety for bicyclists can be enhanced – especially in cities with dense traffic and a lot of interactions (see also Sanders 2015).

In order to learn more about possible risks for riders especially considering the automation level of cars at high automation level 5 the author of this abstract tried to match outcomes of different ongoing projects to find out, where bicyclists direct their visual attention on their ways within a naturalistic riding study in Vienna and the city of Salzburg as well as understand if other road users, especially car drivers estimate the needs of cyclists regarding safety and comfort. The latter will be derived from research about automation level 5 and the thus estimated results on traffic in general and especially on unprotected road users.
