The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is currently addressing several general safety areas, including examining driver behavior at intersections, developing tools and procedures for intersection design, and conducting human factors literature reviews for Safety Research and Development (R&D) program areas such as Intersections, Pedestrians and Bicyclists, Speed Management, and Visibility.
As a part of task B.2 of the Integrated Program for the Interactive Highway Safety Design Model and Safety Research project for FHWA, the Battelle team conducted literature searches on human cognition, perception, and behavior in the areas of intersections (signalized and nonsignalized intersections), speed management (infrastructure influences on driver speed), pedestrians and bicyclists (nonmotorized transportation), and visibility (visibility of traffic control devices and materials).
This report describes the activities and results associated with task B.2: Human Factors Literature Reviews in Safety R&D Research program areas.
The body of this report contains two technical sections:
Topics: research, safety, pedestrian & bicycle safety, visibility and retroreflectivity, speed management
Keywords: research, safety, Intersections, Pedestrians, Bicyclists, Speed Management, Visibility, Interactive Highway Safety Design Model, Human Factors
