  • 7. How we use the profiles in GOAL• Transport needs and research gaps with regard to -Driving -Public transport, walking, cycling -Traveller information © GOAL consortium 7
  • 8. Driving• Declination in perceptual, cognitive, and psychomotor function affects driving skills -Motion perception: assessment of traffic situation -Peripheral vision: overlooking, merging and changing lanes -Selective attention: traffic signs and signals -Reaction times in traffic situation• Adaptation -Experience and expectancy• Traffic safety -More likely to hurt themselves than to put others at risk -Critical factor: average KMs travelled each year• Implications for infrastructure, vehicle & fitness to drive © GOAL consortium 8
  • 9. Public transport• Accessibility -vehicles -Busstops• Availabitlity -close to home and destinations -rural areas -demand responsive• Implications -Directives, guidelines, best practice available -Implication and details > economic justification of measures © GOAL consortium 9
  • 10. Walking & cycling• Walking & cycling -Important to stay healthy, mobile, independent and active -Walking as access mode -Physical restricts and cognitive declines increase the risk of accidents and severe injuries (cycling) -Higher vulnerability -Friendly environments and infrastructure• Implications -Design of infrastructure -Promotion, encouragement, training (e-bicycles) © GOAL consortium 10
  • 11. Traveller information• Cognitive, visual, hearing and other physical impairments• Insecurity, inexperienced, percieved unsafety• Elderly-friendly travel information -Type of information -Pre-trip / on-trip -Functionality & user interface design• Implications -Little research available -Technology adoption -Workload (esp in-vehicle) © GOAL consortium 11
  • 12. Wat betekent dit voor beleid?• Auto rijden -Operationeel rijgedrag > verkeersstroom, capaciteit -Fitness to drive > infrastructuur, rijbewijsbeleid• Lopen en fietsen -Ongevalskans > maatschappelijke kosten• Openbaar vervoer -Toegankelijkheid > aanbod -Toegankelijkheid > infrastructuur & materieel• Reis- en verkeersinformatie -Cognitief vermogen > dynamisch verkeersmanagement• Segmentering basis voor beleid -effectiviteit van maatregelen -Basis voor kosten-baten analyse © GOAL consortium 12
