The methodology focuses on safety assessment using data from floating vehicles. The methodology is intended for researchers who deal with the issue of road safety assessment and are considering the use of data from floating vehicles; also for employees of the state administration and local government who encounter this issue in the role of the contracting authority for tenders for the supply of transport data. The methodology introduces both of these groups to the available data, methods of collection and potential usability for road safety assessment. The methodology also contains a search for ways to evaluate this data and also contains a specific example of collection and evaluation, which can be used both for evaluating the driving style of drivers and for identifying critical points of the road network.
