2-Wheeler Behaviour and Safety

2BESAFE was an innovative program of Research under the Seventh Framework Program. Its main objectives were the research on crash causes and human error, the first naturalistic driving study involving instrumented Powered Two Wheeler (PTW) and on motorcycle rider risk awareness and perception. It also aimed to develop new research tools to support the research program, to do in-depth research on the factors that underlie driver failures and to develop the recommendations for practical countermeasures for enhancing PTW rider safety.

ICCS’s main role in the project was to be Work Package Leader in Socio-Cognitive Analysis of PTW and to add value to the project’s research into the Human Factors within the context of PTW Riders.
