Roadside infrastructure for safer European Roads: D03 Critical vehicle and infrastructure interactions

The purpose of this report is to describe the relationship between real world crash situations and the crash tests used to approve road equipment in the European Union. The source of data was the reconstruction of accidents collected directly in the RISER project (TNO and CIDAUT), reconstruction of existing accident cases (Chalmers, TUG, and CETE), the analysis of the RISER detailed accident database (VSRC) and the collection of standardised crash tests (HUT). Other partners contributed directly or indirectly to the different tasks in the RISER project.
