MicroTraffic's Conflict Reports provide high resolution near-miss data for risk diagnosis during an in-service road safety audit or a before-after study in road safety.
Data on near-misses supports better road safety studies.
To incorporate a MicroTraffic conflict report into your next road safety study, we will need you to obtain 3 to 7 days of intersection video and send it to us. You can get the video from a TMC PTZ or fisheye camera, by installing a temporary camera like a Miovision Scout or a Vermac CT-2430, or by sending a video collection contractor to the field. We will automatically analyze the video to determine road user positions, speeds, accelerations, near-misses, and turning movement counts.
Our conflict reports are about 30-40 pages long, containing data on all relevant conflict configurations. A conflict configuration, for example, is NBL vehicle vs Ped on West Crosswalk. For each configuration, we provide:
The number of conflicts observed in the critical, high, medium, and low risk categories
Annualized estimates of conflict frequency (e.g. 400 critical risk events per year)
The conflict rate, as a percentage of road users making the respective movement
A comparison of the conflict rate to our benchmarks, when available, using relative risk multiples (e.g. 3% of pedestrians on west crosswalk experience high risk conflicts with SBR vehicles, compared to a benchmark rate of 0.3% for similar intersections, meaning the relative risk is 10 times over benchmark).
A temporal distribution of conflicts by severity to assist with operational diagnostics.
