Motorized Two-wheeler safety – a comparative risk study of the occupants in Indian and Australian context

Globally out of the 1.35 million road traffic deaths, more than half of them are amongst the pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists. There are more Motorized (Powered) Two Wheelers (MTWs) in Indian cities compared to other modes (10-15%), excluding pedestrian and public transport. Further nearly 34...

Developing Effective Traffic Congestion Management Strategies for Road Transport Systems with Traditional, Connected and Automated Vehicles

Entering the promise of connected and automated vehicles, the lack of a robust, theory-based operational plan for mixed traffic flow (traditional vehicles mixed with connected and automated vehicles) will only lead to more chaotic roads. This project aims to address this issue.

Health benefits of air pollution mitigation: A comparative assessment of policies for high (India) and low (Australia) exposure regions

Air pollution is the leading environmental cause of mortality and morbidity in the world. Despite significant progress in air pollution epidemiology, uncertainty in estimating the burden remains large, especially in data poor countries like India. Moreover, whether the relative burden of PM2.5 expos...
