PETIT, Luciano. Interactional behaviourist transit model: diagnosic algorithm. Infraestructura Vial [online]. 2016, vol.18, n.32, pp.12-19. ISSN 2215-3705.

The aim of this article is to present a new theoretical and technical perspective which coordinates knowledge as well as disciplinary, though dissimilar, fields that are necessary and complementary for the analysis and understanding of the complexity of all situations and events relating to transit and road safety. On the one hand, the conceptual principles of Trans-System Transit and Road Safety and the Interactional Behavioural Transit Model are set out; on the other hand, there follows the technical development, in order to obtain a synthesizing point, or points, which will allow us to define such system based on four conditions. The value is obtained using an algorithm that proposes the intersection of lines on a plane of Cartesian axes. It has been run with MATLAB TM software, resulting in graphics which make it possible to diagnose (“path diagnosis”) the TransSystem Transit and Road Safety, through the Interactional Behavioural Transit Model, linking physical elements such as road infrastructure, and behaviours such as behaviour in urban drivers.

The theory and the technique result from a fragile interaction between actors (psychosocial environment) and physical elements ( physical environment), based on the irreducible structure of their components, and keeping the distinction between such actors and physical elements in a dialectical association of interdependence and integrity that includes dissimilar extremes: Behavioural System and System of Physical Elements.
