Workshop on Naturalistic Cycling Analysis

Workshop on Naturalistic Cycling Analysis


The aim of this workshop is to discuss the potential of naturalistic cycling analysis to improve traffic safety.

This workshop comprises of two parts: In the first part, current naturalistic cycling studies will be presented.

In the second part, different research questions will be discussed and prioritized to suggest how naturalistic cycling analyses may tackle bicycle safety issues, such as single-bicycle accidents and conflicts at intersections.
