Qualitative cannot easily be measured but reflects some quality of what is being observed. Qualitative can involve in scanning an picking out certain key words or phrases. It can generate hypothesis to observe relationships and conclusions. There are other methods that I have thought about but not considered such as focus groups, participants or case studies Chapter Plan In my Introduction I will be giving a brief of what my project is about and what aspects I will be looking into. My literature review will mention where I will be obtaining my information from such as libraries direct information from companies dealing with information technology or the police website to obtain up-to-date information. In my research methodology it will have information of what methods I will be using to obtain the information. Conclusion Information Technology is a key factor to making roads safer, technology not only protects but also deters drivers not to break the law. I will be visiting or getting information through post of different types of road traffic technologies used at present and future. My next step will be to get as much information on road traffic technology such as literature from journals and books. I have set myself a realistic time scale to complete my dissertation so I have adequate time available so I can double check an make necessary improvements where needed. ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 Mohammed Imran Haris BSC(Hons) 02/12/05 Dissertation Proposal ...read more.
