Level of emotional arousal of one's body changes in response to external stimuli in an environment. Given the risks involved while crossing streets, particularly at unsignalized mid-block crosswalks, one can expect a change in the stress level of pedestrians. In this study, we investigate the levels and changes in pedestrian stress, under different road crossing scenarios in immersive virtual reality. To measure stress level of pedestrians, we used Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) sensors. To… 

Debiased machine learning for estimating the causal effect of urban traffic on pedestrian crossing behaviour

A Double/Debiased Machine Learning (DML) model is developed in which the impact of confounders variable influencing both a policy and an outcome of interest is addressed, resulting in unbiased policy evaluation and is more reliable for planning future policies.

Ordered-logit pedestrian stress model for traffic flow with automated vehicles

An ordered-logit model is developed to study the effects of Automated Vehicles in the traffic mix on the average stress level of a pedestrian when crossing an urban street at mid-block, and results indicate a decrease inaverage stress level with the increase in the percentage of AVs in the Traffic mix.



Virtual Immersive Reality for Stated Preference Travel Behavior Experiments: A Case Study of Autonomous Vehicles on Urban Roads

The use of VIRE is demonstrated in researching pedestrian preferences related to autonomous vehicles and associated infrastructure changes on urban streets in Montréal, Canada and it is shown that VIRE results in respondents having better understanding of the scenario and it yields more consistent results.
