The road safety performance of a country and the success of policy measures can be measured and monitored in different ways. In addition to the traditional road safety indicators based on the number...

Does agreement mean accuracy? Evaluating glance annotation in naturalistic driving data

Publication/article
Published: 2020 : Jansen, R.J.; Kint, S.T. van der; Hermens, F.
Tags: Human behaviour in traffic,
Naturalistic driving studies often make use of cameras to monitor driver behavior. To analyze the resulting video images, human annotation is often adopted. These annotations then serve as the ‘gold...
