IPENZ 3M Award2

Dale Harris has also been recognised for her innovative work at the recent IPENZ Transportation Group Conference.  Dale won best young author with her paper 'Developing a Risk Prediction Model for a Safe System Signature Project’ and won the  3M Traffic Safety Innovation Award, with Paul Durdin for ‘SignatureNET and the Curve Risk Prediction Model’. 

This award recognises a new GIS methodology developed for identifying high risk curves by modelling driver behaviour (acceleration and deceleration) along a road centreline. The methodology, which uses linear referencing tools and Python programming, identifies parts of the road network where drivers are most at risk of losing control.
