Using Social Media for knowledge

we are convinced that technology is essential today to address the lack of social and road culture in many states, not only in the Mediterranean area.  But we wonder if it is not yet possible to intervene with the "older" generations to improve these problems via technology as well.  We could use the social networks Facebook and WhatsApp to distribute easily printable files to report to the authorities on the problems that we as motorcyclists encounter daily on the roads.

"Little Agatha" Action

Visits to primary school classes in Pruszków, as a response to the fatal hit of a 9-year-old girl who was returning home from school. She died 2 days later. The accident was a classic: one driver stopped before the zebra, the girl entered the crossing, the other driver ignored the situation... "Little Agatha" is a road sign symbol at schools.

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.
