Participation in road traffic, whether on the way to work or as part of a professional activity, is a stress factor for many people that should not be underestimated and also represents a significant accident risk.
In our research projects, we analyze, among other things, the occurrence of accidents (e.g. exposures) and investigate the conditions of safe driving behavior within the framework of field studies with the aim of deriving accident risks. In this context, people and the processes underlying their behavior, such as perception, emotion and motivation, play a special role.
Our goal is to use our research results to increase road safety on the way to work and business trips in the long term through new prevention approaches and concepts.
