TORUS + BriskLUMINA | Designing Roundabouts with Safety Performance in Mind


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.

Learning Objectives:

  • 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
