Predicting Road Accidents - a transferable methodology across Europe

16 May 2016

The final project workshop entitled a 'Transferable methodology across Europe' will take place on the 3rd June 2016 in Manchester.

It has been organised by the PRACT and ESRet projects.

PRACT is a research project funded by the National Road Authorities of Germany, Ireland, UK and the Netherlands within the Conference of European Directors of Roads (CEDR) 2013 Transnational Research Programme on Safety, which was completed within May 2016. The primary objective of the PRACT Project was the development of an European accident prediction model structure that could be applied to different European road networks with proper calibration.

The ESRet Project is a platform that enables end-users to collate data along poorly performing road network sections using low-cost mobile devices (Smartphones, dashcams) and upload this data to a scalable cloud-based road network platform, where various deficits and treatments could be identified. It was built by the Conference of European Directors of Roads (CEDR) and funded by the European Safety Review (ESRet).
