2. Strategies and Tools
3. Data and Study Area
4. Methodology and Results
- At a macro-level of detail,
- The facilitation of a more general perspective of the driver performance allowing standard and non-standard (or anomalous) driving behavior to be derived.
- The rapid detection of anomalous behavior, such as fast speed driving, abnormal speed changes, slow and/or wrong reactions to hazardous situations, etc.
- The influence of road path on certain kinematic parameters, such as braking, acceleration, and deceleration actions.
- The analysis of driving performance under certain conditions related with particular environments, traffic congestions, weather, etc.
- The establishment of common driving patterns based on different factors, such as daytime, genre, socioeconomic status, etc.
- At a micro-level of detail,
- The achievement of a holistic vision of the driving performance for any subject. Thus, it is possible to analyze in detail how certain maneuvers (related to entry/exit in motorways, over-taking, and interactions between drivers and/or pedestrians) really happen. It is shown in Figure 5, where more data layers are sequentially included from left (two in Figure 5a) to right (four in Figure 5c).
- The evaluation of the level of compliance with road signs and the degree of efficiency of awareness campaigns.
- The detection of road sections that are potentially dangerous not only in terms of crashes, but also other incidents, such as near-crashes or anomalous behavior.
