Keywords: road accident reconstruction and prevention Multi-body

Main topics: 
  1. the definition of best practices for the survey execution directly on the accident place and the writing of a specific handbook for Judicial Police agents, that outdoes the considerable limits of the norm UNI 11472;
  2. the experimental survey, based on direct observation techniques, of cyclist modalities, with evaluation of the observance degree of generic and specific Traffic Laws, recognition of the most problematic situations and quantitative evaluation of cinematic parameters. These consist in speed and average acceleration (cfr. Fig. 1) relative to the operation typology (crossing, turning right, turning left), track typology (reserved or public track, in the second case with low or high interference probability with respect to further vehicle streams), as well as age range;
  3. the experimental survey, based on simulation techniques, of car driver perception of cyclists in the most problematic conditions, with quantitative evaluation of perception distance and time of reaction;
  4. the study and the design of algorithms and numerical methods aimed at supporting the driving behavior analysis for car driver profiling;
  5. the experimental survey, based on computational simulation techniques, on the perception of direction change indicators of a given vehicle by bikers coming from the opposite direction or in the process of overtaking that vehicle;
  6. the investigation about the typology of information processed by OBD-II drives (On board diagnostic) of car vehicles and motorbikes, as well as about their acquisition and analysis methods;
  7. the analysis concerning the reliability of our elaborated models through model checking techniques developed in mathematical logic for the evaluation of the security degree of those models and the recognition of possible critical situations.
