3th International Conference on Organization and Traffic Safety Management in Large Cities, SPbOTSIC 2018; Saint Petersburg; Russian Federation; 27 September 2018 до 29 September 2018
The Proceedings of the Thirteenth International Conference on Organization and Traffic Safety Management in Large Cities (SPbOTSIC 2018, September 27–29, 2018, Saint Petersburg) cover a wide range of issues: conceptual, regulatory, organizational, scientific and methodological, technical, technological, informational, etc. The purpose is to proceed with thorough reconsideration of the current practice of traffic safety assurance in Russia, accumulation of data and development of a database of new knowledge including the complete set of factors affecting the level of ensured traffic safetyand substantiation of measures preventing those factors that can cause severe road accidents resulting in fatalities. The subjects of researches are the following: technologies and methods,including digital ones, for the efficient organization of the national and regional systems, management of the level of ensured traffic safety, as well as organization of various functionally required subsystems to support processes for preventing fatalities on roads. Several articles focus on the following issues: evaluating the quality of regulatory, legislative, methodological, informational and other types of support; developing transport infrastructure, including bikeways;providing intellectualizationof systems and processes, mathematical and digitalformalization; resolving modeling and design tasks regarding various objects of the system, observingtheir functioning, and forecasting their condition.Technologies of GIS modeling of road systems and accident rate, DUI prevention, etc. are considered. Formulating and resolving topical issues explored in the SPbOTSIC 2018 Proceedings can provide support for solutions of challenges in switching the current practice of traffic safety assurance to the use of a strict systemic approach to the continuous (in terms of CALS technologies) design of systems for preventing fatalities on roads. This approach is the only universal and generally recognized scientific tool for efficient studies of complex systems of any nature and, as a final result, for solving the issue of preserving human lives in the format of "zero mortality" in road trafficworldwide.
