Collision Analysis & Road Safety Performance

Millions of road crashes occur throughout the world every year. A car crash may have ten or more events that could be the cause. The goal of collision analysis is to identify these causes in order to understand their complexity and to realize that most car crashes are preventable by eliminating one or more of these causes.

Safety performance determines how and why these failures occur on a road network, even in the absence of robust crash data, and gives additional answers to determine what can be done to prevent similar incidents in the future and build more robust economic cases supporting road safety investments.

Dr. Rob Thomson, Professor of Vehicle Safety, Chalmers University

My research in road safety began in 1988 when I began post graduate studies with the UBC Accident Research Team in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. Since then I have worked in almost all areas of road and traffic safety. Crash testing, accident analysis, numerical modeling, and analyzing vehicle test data have been my methods to understand why and how we are injured in a crash.
