  • A brief Sorrento rundown of MeBeSafe

    A General Assembly meeting is a great way to fellow researchers in on the project. And a brief summary of that meeting is an ever greater way for anyone to get an overview of the project.
  • The first MeBeSafe Newsletter is out

    Read about attempts to nudge car drivers to increase attention with an in-vehicle nudge, lights along a road exit to make cars slow down, haptic nudging measures to affect cyclists and much more.
  • When is a nudge satisfactory?

    When is a nudge satisfactory? When an infrastructure nudge is set up and running, a completely new field opens up. Are the drivers nudged into safer behaviour? And what is actually safer behaviour? When a nudge is active and measurements are being made, then comes the time to compare driver behaviour with and without the nudge. It may seem rather straightforward, but it is in fact not. Measuring difference in speed is one thing, measuring whether...
  • What is a car, and how fast does it move?

    What is a car, and how fast does it move? It is easy for a human to see what is a car and what is not. For a computer, this has traditionally been very difficult. But emerging smart technologies make new ways of identification possible. To select which car drivers to nudge for the light nudge, the cars must first be seen. A thermal camera can be used to get images of the actual...
  • Nudging cyclists – presentation

    Nudging cyclists – presentation 19th February 2019A lunch seminar at SAFER was held on the cyclist nudging in Gothenburg. Victor Bergh Alvergren and Pontus Wallgren from Chalmers/SAFER presented the results to around 50 people interested in road safety. <- Back to Events section
  • New flyer describing MeBeSafe

    A new flyer describing the basics about MeBeSafe has now been released! If you would like to get to know MeBeSafe a bit better, take a look or download it here!
  • Driver profiles in coaching

    Risky driving behaviour can lead to crashes but by coaching drivers on their driving behaviour we can reduce risky driving behaviour, therefore reducing crashes and as a result increase traffic safety.
  • Integrated framework

    On the basis of a typification of nudging and coaching respectively, the assumed underlying system of thinking (i.e. System 1 or System 2) and types of intervention strategies, an integrated model has been proposed.
  • Nudging makes decisions easier

    The assumptions behind nudging are that by "knowing how people think, we can use sensible “choice architecture” to nudge people toward the best decisions for ourselves, our families, and our society, without restricting our freedom of choice".
