Module 3: Safe System design for a road transport system
Module 3: Safe System design for a road transport system builds on the knowledge learned in Module 2 and provides students with further insights into the practical application of the Safe System. Topics will address the underlying physical mechanisms of harm and the practical solutions that can be used to address these mechanisms. Students are also introduced into the application of these solutions and the tools that can be used to decide what is done where. Module 3 is aimed towards students with prior learning experience in basic engineering subjects and who have an interest in developing knowledge about road transport engineering.
This is the third Module for the SS4U unit for engineering students and educators. Module 3 has been designed to be delivered in six parts.
All lecture and tutorial content is available for you to download.
- Part 1: Managing energy on our roads PPTX, 17.92MB
- Part 2: Eliminating harm at intersections
- Part 3: Eliminating harm from road departures
- Part 4: Eliminating harm to vulnerable road users
- Part 5: The system gap
- Part 6: Safe System design tools
The tutorials have been developed to allow students to demonstrate the knowledge that they have gained through each module. Three tutorials are available for Module 3.
