Aktivitet: Andre aktivitetstyperEkstern undervisning og censoraktivitet


How do people make sense of traffic signs in urban settings, and how can this knowledge be utilized to inform the creation of better design policies and manuals? These questions relate to the theoretical and empirical evidence of road signs as traffic guides as well as to how a person moves around in an environment. Different types of road signs exist in this world. Most road signs are uniform signs that are standard for worldwide application, based on the Vienna Convention (United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, 1968). Many research studies in the urban environment and traffic engineering fields focus on human behaviour and traffic sign system recognition. In order to provide an overview of the state-of- the-art developments, this thesis presents a theoretical lens that is used to anchor the subjects of the studies in ‘built environment’, ‘people’ and ‘road signs’ through the theories of mobility and geosemiotics.
