Nominal and substantive safety are both vital components of the complete design lifecycle of any road infrastructure, including roundabouts. Join transportation engineers, Paul St-Aubin and Anoosh Hafezi, to learn how Transoft’s TORUS and BriskLUMINA solutions help practitioners diagnose safety issues at existing sites, build and then re-evaluate roundabout design using actual observed road user interactions, so that roundabouts can be designed with safety performance in mind.
- Insight into how roundabout design has a direct impact on road safety
- Understanding the challenges associated with traditional roundabout safety evaluation techniques
- Introduction to video-based road safety analysis tools and methods
- Benefits to using design and transportation safety tools that help practitioners through the full Road Safety Management Process
Paul G. St-Aubin, P.Eng., Ph.D., Senior Product Manager, Transportation Safety, Montreal, Quebec
Paul is a Transportation Engineer and Sr. Product Manager for Transoft Solutions’ Transportation Safety division as well as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Waterloo. He has over 10 years of experience developing, deploying, and over-seeing large-scale proactive road safety analysis technologies, including recent cutting-edge work in predictive collision course modelling. Paul specializes in several civil engineering and computer science topics, including road & safety design, driver behavior, advanced collision detection, traffic control devices, vehicle automation, traffic data collection systems, computer vision, and ITS.
Anoosh Hafezi, P.Eng., M.Eng., MBA, Senior Transportation Engineer, Civil & Transportation, Vancouver, BC
With 15 years experience in the field of transportation engineering, Anoosh has been involved with several high-profile design projects including roadways, highways, transit corridors and parking facilities. He recently managed a design project for a port that involved 5 iterations of a roundabout design.
