First-hand insight into drivers’ natural behaviour

Publication date: 28 May 2015

The number of road fatalities in Europe has decreased by 22 % since 2010, however the disappointing performance recorded in 2014 is a clear sign that innovative solutions to increase safety on our roads are desperately needed. So far, measures have been taken based on the likes of simulations, surveys, analyses of relevant statistics, prevention campaigns, speed cameras or reinforced police controls. But do we really know what’s actually happening behind the wheel, and how to best prevent it?


For the UDRIVE (eUropean naturalistic Driving and Riding for Infrastructure & Vehicle safety and Environment) team, the answer is no. Current insights into driver behaviour are often altered by the nature of collected data, which fails to reflect the natural driving behaviour of European citizens.
