Abstract

Road vehicles equipped with appropriate measurement equipment, computing facilities, data storage and data communication capabilities can be considered valuable data sources for the description and quantitative characterisation of road traffic. The data obtained from these vehicles provide valuable direct and indirect information pertaining to traffic states and various aspects of traffic safety in respect of the analysed road network. In this study, trucks' abrupt braking events, detected by the trucks' onboard safety protection units, were analysed. The road locations of the detected abrupt braking events can be characterised by a number of features ranging from the specific traffic regulations (e.g., speed limits) in force to the socio-cultural environment of the location. The abrupt braking data evidence was used for identification and description of non-trivial interactions of drivers, trucks and roads. Some of the more interesting results and conclusions of the experiments are reported herein.
