Speed display signs reduce driving speed at pedestrian crossings on collector streets
A recent study evaluated speed display signs at pedestrian crossings in a low-speed (40 km/h) urban environment. Installing speed displays significantly reduced the mean speed, proportion of speeding vehicles, and approaching speed at pedestrian crossings. The speed displays were installed...

Feasibility, costs and benefits of retrofitting ADAS to improve road safety
In order to decrease road fatalities, the European Parliament has made several ADAS mandatory in new models from June 2022 onward. Through retrofitting, the uptake of these ADAS in the vehicle fleet could be improved. VTT and Ecorys have studied the feasibility, costs and benefits of retrofitting...

Agile evaluation methods for ITS
Successful deployment of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) applications requires information on their impacts, costs and benefits, technical functioning and other characteristics. However, the resources, time and data available for evaluation of ITS systems are usually limited. Evaluation methods...
