  1. To consolidate and combine information available from national projects, in-depth datacollection activities and rider behaviour investigations.
  2. To populate the new accident database during and beyond the end of the COST Action

The WG will share, consolidate and combine information available from national projects and datacollection activities and integrate the accident data from these different sources with rider behaviour to allow new perspectives on accident prevention in different road environments.


Task 1.1 Data harmonization

The consortium will adopt the database structure proposed by the DACOTA project with the aim to create a standard for data collection and analysis at international level. The WG will focus on jointly defining criteria to arrange the accident information in order to increase the usability for PTW researchers and not to disregard fundamental information for research activities.

Task 1.2 Data Integration

A dedicated workshop on data integration will be held with one focus on accident data (data coming from several databases, links and input definition to simulation tools) and a second focus on combination and mutual data exchange with training-oriented and road environment data.

Task 1.3 Data merging and database population

Data will be entered into the common database

Task 1.4 In-depth analysis

After the common database will be populated, the PTW accident data will be analysed in order to extract data to be used for other WGs. A templates-based approach will be enabled, which can be used to reproduce PTW crash scenarios in a virtual environment. A systematic process approach will be generated for analysis and post-processing and to simulate the applicability of current active safety systems.
