Abstract

Due to the increased traffic, improving road safety is one of the major issues in the transportation policies of most countries. Our primary goal is to locate possible spots where vehicle travel against the traffic direction is possible. Vehicle driving on the wrong side of the road also known as ghost driver. This paper presents a technique in junctions based on graph analysis to locate possible ghost driver spots. The paper demonstrates a safety technical application in the case of different type of road crossings and gives an overview about the thematic data modelling and the applied technology.
