Universities are centers of knowledge and their Campuses are like small cities, thus making them the ideal place to develop, apply and evaluate policies and tools for innovative mobility solutions that can subsequently be extended to other contexts. A review of mobility measures in different European Universities has revealed that many of them appl...
Article
Background: The driving behavior of patients with mild Alzheimer's disease dementia (ADD) and patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is frequently characterized by errors. A genetic factor affecting cognition is apolipoprotein E4 (APOE4), with carriers of APOE4 showing greater episodic memory impairment than non-carriers. However, differenc...

Stopping Sight Distance (SSD) is a vital design element, which directly affects the control values of critical road design parameters. Although grade marginally affects SSD values, most design guidelines disregard the grade impact during vehicle braking on variable grades. The paper investigates possible deficiency of this approach, regarding cases...

University campuses are a microcosmos of the urban landscape and an excellent testbed for implementing and evaluating novel mobility policies. However, no scientific contribution has ever aimed to provide a template for university mobility managers to develop an action plan for an efficient and effective sustainable university mobility plan tailore...
Chapter
The objective of the present research is to better understand mobility in university campus areas, using local and transnational data, policies and planning instruments. This analysis looks at integrating student’s mobility flows to/from and inside Campus areas with urban mobility. Within this framework, a survey was developed for seven Southern Eu...
Chapter
The objective of the present research is to carry out a gap analysis between current mobility situations and the needs, future plans and priorities regarding a number of thematic areas on the issue of mobility in university campuses. For this purpose, an interview was conducted involving 36 experts from seven Southern European Universities. More sp...
Article
As driving error is a main contributory factor of road accidents, its causes and consequences are of great interest in the road safety decision making process. This paper investigates several factors (including driver distraction, driver characteristics and road environment) that affect overall driving error behaviour and estimates a new unobserved...
Article
Considering that unexpected events are a major contributory factor of road accidents the main objective of this article is to investigate the effect of several parameters including overall driving performance, distraction sources, driver characteristics, as well as road and traffic environment on accident probability at unexpected incidents. For th...

While driving simulators allow for the examination of a range of driving performance measures in a controlled, relatively realistic and safe driving environment, driver distraction is a multidimensional phenomenon which means that no single driving performance measure can capture all effects of distraction. Furthermore, the large number of driving...
Article
The objective of this research is to compare the driving performance of young drivers in normal and simulation driving conditions. For this purpose, 31 young drivers aged 20-30 participated in an experimental process including driving both in a driving simulator as well in real traffic condition at an interurban road. A central component of the exp...
Article
The Trail Making test (TMT) has been identified as predictor of driving ability in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). However, previous research has not explored the effectiveness of an alternative version of the TMT, namely of the Comprehensive Trail Making Test (CTMT; Reynolds, 2002) to show associations with measures related to driving fitn...
Article
Objective The present research relies on two main objectives. The first is to investigate whether latent model analysis through a structural equation model can be implemented on driving simulator data in order to define an unobserved driving performance variable. Subsequently, the second objective is to investigate and quantify the effect of severa...
Article
The objective of this research was the analysis of the driving performance of drivers with Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) or Alzheimer’s disease (AD), in different road and traffic conditions, on the basis of a driving simulator experiment. In this experiment, healthy “control” drivers, patients with MCI, and patients with AD, drove at several sce...
Article
Although driver distraction can be considered as part of everyday driving it constitutes a basic contributory factor for increased risk for road accidents internationally. Within this content, cell-phone use and conversation with passenger are two critical in-vehicle distraction conditions with respect to driver behavior and safety. The objective o...
Article
The objective of this paper is to analyze the self-reported driving behaviour of older drivers with and without brain pathologies affecting cognition, in order to explore possible differences in self-perception of driving behaviour, through an extensive questionnaire assessment. The diagnostic categories examined include Alzheimer׳s disease, Parkin...
Article
Texting while driving seems to be a widespread behavior, which has been associated with a non-negligible proportion of road accidents, especially among younger drivers. The impairment of the driver’s behavior and the related risks may be increasing on motorways, taken into consideration the fact that there are high vehicle speeds and the necessary...
Article
Driving is a complex task that requires the ability to receive sensory information, process the information, and to make proper, timely judgments and responses. Older drivers or drivers suffering brain pathologies may have deficits in their driving ability (motor, visual, cognitive or perceptual) and these deficits may lead to reduced driver fitnes...

Article
Although older drivers are involved in a few accidents in terms of absolute numbers, they represent one of the highest risk categories for accidents involving fatalities and serious injuries per number of drivers and per distance travelled. Furthermore, cell phone use is estimated to be an important cause of vehicle accidents. Even if cell phone...
Article
Background Parks and green spaces are an integral part of daily life and contribute to all aspects of health and well-being both of urban residents and visitors. Especially during times of economic crisis the range of freely available activities and opportunities provided by organized green parks becomes particularly important. Furthermore, landsca...
Article
Background Driver distraction is estimated to be an important cause of vehicle accidents. Driver distraction factors can be subdivided into those that occur outside the vehicle and those that occur inside the vehicle. While the factors that occur inside the vehicle seem to have greater effect on driver behaviour and safety, the distraction mechanis...
Article
Background Driving is a complex task, which requires possessing cognitive, motor and visual skills and it is necessary for the drivers to have adequate motor strength, speed and coordination. The normal ageing process leads to declines in these motor and cognitive skills, and when combined with a cerebral disease, it may significantly impair the pe...
