Objectives
transportation planning, policymaking, and management and engineering by integrating safety evaluation into traditional TSI, trip behavior modeling, and supply-demand equilibrium theory. 2. To develop a transportation network-level safety performance function (i.e., meso CPM) using Bayesian spatiotemporal and hierarchical modeling techniques in which a variety of factors related to the regional road network, road entities, traffic flow, and human-vehicle systems are accounted for. 3. Based on decision-making optimization theory, to upgrade TSA methodology to integrate the objectives of both transportation efficiency and traffic safety to establish inherently safe and efficient transportation networks.
