Abstract

The COMGUARD is the advance warning system of hazardous road spots, which consists of signallers built into the road surface, and of onboard unit to be installed into the vehicle. The system elaborated on the basis of an internationally patented innovation was set up with experimental character in 9 counties in Hungary, creating this way a test reference area. On the basis of this, KTI carried out tests and surveys in 2007-2008 on the compliance and efficiency of the system, analysing the users´ attitude and the probable acceptance by the population. In the survey, the attitude of the drivers has been studied in the case of not using and using the device; we evaluated the reliability of the signaller and signalling; we analysed the demands and the acceptance to be expected from the side of the population.
