How environmental features in urban areas affect the perceived risk of children pedestrians

Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

Crossing the road is a complex task that involves perception, cognitive skills and motor abilities. In order to decide whether to cross the road or not, one is first required to judge whether the crossing place is ‘safe’ or ‘dangerous’; this decision is based upon experience, current situation and the anticipated conditions. The way pedestrians perceive a place as suitable for crossing may affect their awareness toward potential hazards and will affect the overall readiness and situation awareness.
The aim of this work was to study the road-side factors that influence the way children evaluate the road as safe or dangerous for crossing
