Abstract: The dynamic road view perception study was designed and conducted in order to get a better insight into the safety and speed effects of alternative road design. The laboratory experiment was designed, primarily, to test the effect of road category, geometric road design and road environment elements, as well as driving speed, on subjective assessment of road characteristics and drivers speed choice. The dynamic road visualisation method applied has been tested for practical use in computer aided 3D road design evaluation.
Keywords: Geometric road design, visualisation, perception, aesthetics, safety
