This report discusses the development of a safety warning system for urban freeways. The system is designed to alert motorists of freeway stoppages which occur downstream of overpasses. The design features of a prototype system installed on the Gulf Freeway are discussed.

safety warning system for the gulf freeway. about 13 incidents occur weekly on the inbound section of the ramp control area of the gulf freeway in houston, texas. about a quarter of all incidents during the peak hours, and most incidents during the off-peak periods, result in minimum delay in themselves but create a safety : C L Dudek.

plemented to automatically control three prototype safety warning systems on the Gulf Freeway. Key Words: Freeway control, traffic surveillance, safety, driver communications, traffic characteristics, shock waves.

DISCLAIMER The contents of this report reflect the views of the author who. all 35 incidents during the 9-month period were eliminated by the warning system may be argued. But, because the accidents increased by 20 percent in the outbound section of the Gulf Freeway, it can be assumed that the warning system contributed to the bulk.

[DOD MIL-STD D Clause ] When we are done with system safety. The HSM Part C provides a predictive method for estimating expected average crash frequencies at individual sites.

This method relies on safety performance functions (SPF) that estimate predicted average crash frequency as a function of traffic volume and roadway characteristics (e.g., number of lanes, median type, intersection control, number of approach legs).

The term Safety Management System (SMS), as used herein, refers to a management approach to highway safety. The standards for electronic safety systems are formally designated as follows: EN ISO (Safety of machinery – Safety-related parts of control system – General Principles for design), EN (Safety of machinery – Functional safety of safety-related electrical, electronic and programmable electronic control systems).
