Traffic safety is a global - growing - problem. In their lifetime, 1 in 3 citizens is involved in a traffic accident with casualties. In the specialisation Traffic Safety, students investigate which factors (infrastructure, vehicle, road user) cause traffic accidents and how these risks can be decreased. In this specialisation, attention is paid to technological innovations with regard to infrastructure and vehicle, as well as to how to understand and influence human behaviour through policy, education and sensitisation. The programme also has a driving simulator at its disposal. With the driving simulator, students can carry out experiments into the effects of physical, mental and visual limitations and the effects of road design and environment on driving behaviour in a controlled environment.
