Project Abstract

The project utilized an existing, large‐scale naturalistic driving dataset – Safety Pilot Model Deployment – to study the interaction between drivers and bicyclists and pedestrians at intersections. Data reduction was conducted to select the events and extract features to be analyzed.

Project Outcome

(1) A comprehensive and clean dataset for driver‐bicyclist events; (2) quantitative results on driver‐bicyclist interactions with a wide range of measures; and
(3) a final report that includes detailed description of study methodology, data analysis, and results.
