Final framework specification for Evaluation Framework for Commercial Vehicle Safety Systems and Services (EFrame)
Report, 2016

The objective of the EFrame FFI project was to develop a structured framework for traffic safety evaluation in an industrial (commercial vehicle manufacturer) context. The resulting framework facilitates more efficient development of crash/injury countermeasures by identifying and focusing on the most important safety (crash) problems, providing a toolset for analyzing crashes and estimating the potential and actual effectiveness of safety systems and services and, finally, identifying the data sources needed to perform these analyses. A general overview of the project and its results can be found in the Final Report (Engström and Wege, 2016) The project started with identification of the general types of safety evaluation needed from an industrial development perspective (the Evaluation Use Cases, EUCs). The EUCs helped to keep the project focused, in spite of its broad general scope, and constituted the basis for all remaining work in the project.
