The impact of regulation 561/2006 on fleet management viewed through efficient use of drivers' working time
Robert Muha, Drago Sever, 2009, review article

Abstract: The introduction of contemporary procedures to fleet management processes has recently changed the work planning and supervision of driver's work activities. Tendencies to control the implementation of driver's work have been present in modem professional practice for quite a long time; however, the equipment available on the market limited its implementation. The intensified development of digital tachographs has, in technical terms, ensured such equipment considerably before the legislative groundwork was prepared for its practical implementation. The Commission Regulation (EC) No. 561/2006 (implementation of Social legislation relating to Road Transport) does not bring any essential novelties in terms of permitted workload. Consistent monitoring of drivers activities, made possible by digital tachographs, will have impact on the existing working methods. The topic of the present paper is in deep analysis of the impact of the mentioned regulation with special emphasis on the conditions for the regulation of the current stage of drivers work and on the expected consequences. The essential importance lies on the expected change in the mentality and approach to planning the driver's activities in the transport process on the part of the carrier: the outcome will eventually result in the efficiency of each individual carrier.
Keywords: fleet management, driver's work planning, digital tachographs

Identification of drivers in traffic accidents and determination of passenger position in a vehicle by finger marks
Matej Trapečar, Martin Lipičnik, Jože Balažic, 2012, review article

Abstract: The following paper aims to illustrate certain investigative activities in the forensic analysis and examination of the scene of traffic accidents. When a traffic accident occurs, the scene must be secured as soon as possible to enable professional and proper forensic investigation. Failure to secure the accident scene might result in losing or contaminating the traces, which makes it more difficult to prove or explain trace evidence in further procedure or even makes such evidence inadmissible. The topic is discussed from the viewpoint of crime scene examination, since analysing and investigating traffic accidents requires a great deal of expertise and attention of the investigators. Complex traffic accidents include feigned accidents, hit-and-run accidents as well as accidents in which the driver and passengers, dead or alive, need to be identified. In identifying the passengers, standard criminal investigation methods as well as police forensic and forensic medicine methods are followed. Such methods include confirming the identities with identity documents, other documents and vehicle ownership, fingerprints, biological traces, fibre traces, contact traces, traces of physical injuries on the driver and passengers, etc. According to the results obtained in fingerprint detection on human skin surfaces, this method can also be applied in confirming physical contact between the driver and the passengers in the accident, e.g. in the event of moving the victims and changing the scene of the accident.
Keywords: traffic accidents, accident analysis, driver's identity, passengers' position, finger marks, human skin

Behavioural comparison of drivers when driving a motorcycle or a car
Darja Topolšek, Dejan Dragan, 2015, original scientific article

Abstract: The goal of the study was to investigate if the drivers behave in the same way when they are driving a motorcycle or a car. For this purpose, the Motorcycle Rider Behaviour Questionnaire and Driver Behaviour Questionnaire were conducted among the same drivers population. Items of questionnaires were used to develop a structural equation model with two factors, one for the motorcyclist's behaviour, and the other for the car driver's behaviour. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses were also applied in this study. Results revealed a certain difference in driving behaviour. The principal reason lies probably in mental consciousness that the risk-taking driving of a motorbike can result in much more catastrophic consequences than when driving a car. The drivers also pointed out this kind of thinking and the developed model has statistically confirmed the behavioural differences. The implications of these findings are also argued in relation to the validation of the appropriateness of the existing traffic regulations.
Keywords: driving behaviour, motorcycle rider behaviour, car driver behaviour, traffic accidents, structural equation modelling, violations, errors

Andrej Božnik, 2011, undergraduate thesis

Abstract: In this thesis, the design of the motor driver electronic board is presented. The motor driver is designed on a Control Area Network bus based communication network. The motor driver is aimed to be used in a humanoid robot as controlling the joint actuators. The designed motor controllers in this project have the capability to be used in a network by multi clients in order to provide different joints control on a common bus. The performance evaluation test of system is made by commanding different desired positions to the controller. The desired positions are approached by the controller by different velocities. The controller is designed in order to provide controllability for the system even in the case of load unstability of the joint. Since the motor controller is aimed to be used for a humanoid robot, the load reflected unstability causes the variation of the overall pose of the robot. Finally, the results are compared and discussed for the evaluation of the designed motor controller.
Keywords: Motor Driver, Design Process, Communication Protocols, CAN, Humanoid Robot.
