Feasibility of safer zebra crossings

This feasibility study examines whether aspects of driving behaviour in the virtual realm are comparable with those in real traffic.

One of the aims of innovations in road transport is to increase pedestrian safety. However, experimentation in the field can put pedestrians at risk and is associated with significant financial burden. Switching to the virtual realm would appear to offer a risk-free alternative. This feasibility study examines whether aspects of driving behaviour in the virtual realm are comparable with those in real traffic.
