The IHE Middle East Branch would like to invite you to their online technical CPD webinar on Wednesday 17th January 2024.

Details

Jwan will be talking about general prediction models available for road safety data: collisions and near-misses. She will be going through traditional prediction models that have been used for decades and illustrate why they are no longer valid and what could go wrong in case applying them in practice. This is then followed by up-to-date research on this topic, further, she will explain the reason behind the approach. Then Jwan will discuss some statistical tools and touch upon some programmes that could be used to undertake such models/approaches.

Jwan will finalise her talk with a case study which is undertaken as part of her PhD research. Briefly she will summarise the results of up-to-date collision prediction models undertaken on the UK roundabouts.
