    Abstract

    The purpose of our research is to develop a new method for the analysis of traffic accidents and to examine the effectiveness of that method. We modified the variation tree method, which was proposed in cognitive science, so that it could be applied to the analysis of the human factors in traffic accidents. We analyzed in particular accidents that occurred at intersections. The resulting diagram makes the sequence of the accident more visually clear. The diagram also illustrates the relationship between direct and indirect contributing factors.
