TMS completed a substantial European research project, in conjunction with Loughborough University. This was an EC funded research project investigating a number of aspects of accident causation.
One of the main objectives of TRACE was to identify factors that contributed to the occurrence of road accidents, with the aim of TRACE Work Package 2 to investigate situations experienced by drivers, immediately prior to a collision taking place.
The role of TMS was to analyse accident databases covering France, Germany, Italy, UK and Spain, and to merge aspects of this data.
The aim of this element of the project was to find common elements of data, to look for common patterns and trends, and to also look for external exposure data to relate to accident data.
