SafetyCube: Building a decision support system on risks and measures

The EU research project SafetyCube (Safety CaUsation, Benefits and Efficiency) is developing an innovative road safety Decision Support System (DSS) collecting the available evidence on a broad range of road risks and possible countermeasures. The structure underlying the DSS consists of (1) a taxonomy identifying risk factors and measures and linking them to each other, (2) a repository of studies, and (3) synopses summarizing the effects estimated in the literature for each risk factor and measure, and (4) an economic efficiency evaluation (E3-calculator). The DSS is implemented in a modern web-based tool with a highly ergonomic interface, allowing users to get a quick overview or go deeper into the results of single studies according to their own needs.
