The objectives of the MeBeSafe project are to develop, implement and evaluate measures that direct road users (mainly car drivers) towards behaviours that reduce the number and severity of road accidents. More in particular the project will develop and implement nudges to:
(i) get drowsy drivers to take a break
(ii) increase car drivers' use of ACC to keep a safe distance to the vehicle in front
(iii) direct drivers' attention towards forecasted and detected hazards before they pose a critical risk;
(iv) reduce car drivers' speed in a certain section of the road
(v) guide drivers along a preferred trajectory in a certain section of road; and
(vi) prompt cyclists to reduce their speed below a threshold speed when approaching urban intersections without traffic lights.
Furthermore, coaching measures will be implemented to decrease in the frequency of harsh driving events.
Development of solutions and field trials will take place in different European countries.
