Analysis and Assessment of Advanced Road Transport Telematic Systems

  • Keith M. Hobley
  • Peter H. Jesty


The hazard analysis of an Advanced road Transport Telematic system is an essential part of the safety life-cycle. A systematic methodology for performing this task has been produced by the project PASSPORT. For each of the two phases, preliminary safety analysis and detailed safety analysis, novel modelling techniques have been devised upon which to perform the hazard analysis. The assurance that these analyses give, can be used as part of a certification process which covers security, reliability and environmental issues, as well as safety.
