Presentation: The SafetyCube European Road Safety Decision Support System (DSS)
SafetyCube is a collaborative research project with 17 partner institutions, funded by the European Commission. SafetyCube DSS is a web based tool offering, for the first time worldwide, scientific evidence on the effects of a large number of road safety risks and related countermeasures on behaviour, infrastructure, vehicle and post-crash care. It also provides comprehensive links between road safety risk factors and respective countermeasures. SafetyCube DSS is designed for decision makers, stakeholders and experts involved in investigating road safety risks or reviewing safety countermeasures.
