Research Interest:

Professor Gårder’s research interest is focused on forecasting, designing and evaluating facilities with emphasis on traffic safety and environmental aspects. He has been conducting research on the effect of continuous shoulder rumble strips along highways; safety of pedestrians and bicyclists; the effect of different intersection lay-outs and controls, such as signalized intersections and roundabouts; driver stress evaluation in intelligent vehicle highway systems; conflict studies; and studies on the value of time.  The results of his research can be found in publications.  For more information about Professor Gårder’s research, click here.
