After the successful test of the prototype of the pre-warning system in phase 1 the following goals are aimed: testing under real-life conditions in a company, gaining data about pedestrians and bicyclists, learning more about the possibilities to reduce unwanted behavioral compensation effects. The focus is on the development of the technology, so that the system can be used when the European standard is established in 2016. Tests under real-life conditions are planned for the end of phase 3 as well as the evaluation of a concept for usage and distribution of the systems up to production stage.
Methods of the study are manifold and will include an intensive review of the literature regarding pedestrian and cyclist movements, behavioral observations in companies and testing areas, interviews, questionnaires, expertinterviews, workshops, consulting with the praxis-council, simulations on the company properties, in testing areas on the road, simulations in the laboratory, traffic simulators and with the researchers themselves in companies.
To optimize the technical system, intensified work and development contacts with the relevant industrial players are planned.
