Data Analysis


This paper discusses the benefits of an automated system for crash analysis and the quality impact of this new and innovative approach to a road safety investigation. The need to create more accurate collision diagrams and crash factor grids led to the concept of a computer-based system that would effectively accomplish these goals and enable further capabilities. CARD (Crash Analyser for Rapid Diagnosis) has been developed to improve the efficiency of the preparation of collision diagrams and to guide in the initial development of Road Safety solutions. The development of CARD commenced in May 2006 and January 2007 saw the release of the first test version. During and since this first trial, user feedback has been assessed and incorporated to enhance the product.
