In 2018, an analysis of the causes of road crashes involving pedestrians in the voivodship Małopolskie in Poland found that 68% of such crashes occurred in the vicinity of pedestrian crossings. The Małopolska Voivodship Police Headquarters in Cracow undertook a detailed assessment of the illumination of and road markings at pedestrian crossings for the whole region. The study identified a large number of deficiencies, especially related to illumination. The official statistics confirmed the high risk for pedestrians on pedestrian crossings.

Data oriented and supported measures to protect vulnerable road users by understanding behavioural aspects at different infrastructural sections is mandatory for professional and successful pro-active road safety work. Usual data collection within the road safety sector is provided by short-timed data collection by hand or police-initiated reports after crashes happened. For better results in research and infrastructure planning, much more data over longer timespans is needed to provide better understanding on traffic flow mechanics, human behaviour and infrastructural effects on both former topics.
With the Mobility Observation Box (MOB) an image sensor based solution to collect, measure and evaluate trajectory data that integrates seamless into traffic flows without interfering them was developed to overcome the data collection issues. MOB is able to collect data for up to 14 consecutive days on-site with machine learning based post-processing of relevant safety KPIs such as TTC and PET. The technology is battery-powered and can be mounted nearly everywhere due to its lightweight.

V sobotu 29. dubna pořádáme další akci k zahájení cyklosezóny. Přijďte od 10 do 16 hodin na dětské dopravní hřiště v Komíně (ulice Pastviny) a otestujte svoje dovednosti na kole nebo koloběžce. Provoz houstne a je důležité si připomínat svoji bezpečnost. Na děti navíc čekají krásné odměny.
Akci pořádáme ve spolupráci s Magistrátem města Brna.

Mit einer Flottengröße von über 2600 Fahrradkurier*innen nimmt foodora die Sicherheit sowohl der Rider als auch aller anderen Verkehrsteilnehmer*innen, die mit foodora Ridern in Kontakt kommen, sehr ernst. Das Ausliefern von Speisen, Lebensmitteln und Waren des täglichen Bedarfs auf großteils Fahrrädern und im urbanen Straßenverkehr erfordert gute Kenntnisse der Verkehrsregeln. foodora arbeitet mit Ridern aus insgesamt 96 verschiedenen Nationen zusammen. Oberstes Ziel der Initiative "foodora Rider Safety" ist es, sie sicher in den Straßenverkehr zu integrieren.
