A Preliminary Investigation into the Safety-Critical Event Risk of Aging Commercial Motor Vehicle Drivers
(National Surface Transportation Safety Center for Excellence, 2018-09-07)
The majority of research into age-related declines in driving performance has concentrated on light vehicle, non-commercial drivers. However, the aging of the commercial motor vehicle (CMV) workforce raises a number of ...
Roadway Epochs: Documentation and User Manual
(National Surface Transportation Safety Center for Excellence, 2015-08-24)
This report describes the contents of the Roadway Epochs Database, which is a collection of tables providing indices for users to access vehicle data from the 100-Car and Second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) ...
Identification of Cognitive Load in Naturalistic Driving
(National Surface Transportation Safety Center for Excellence, 2015-07-28)
Over the last decade, naturalistic driving studies have provided significant insight into issues pertaining to the roles of distraction, inattention, and drowsiness in crash risk. New techniques have been developed for ...
(National Surface Transportation Safety Center for Excellence, 2016-08-09)
This report describes testing equipment and procedures developed by the Center for Technology Development at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) to evaluate critical attributes for cameras used in naturalistic ...
Researcher Dictionary for Safety Critical Event Video Reduction Data
(Virginia Tech. Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, 2015-10-06)
This data dictionary describes the video reduction variables available in the Second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Naturalistic Driving Study data set for use by the research community. The data dictionary ...
Naturalistic Driving Study: Technical Coordination and Quality Control (SHRP 2 Report S2-S06-RW-1)
(Transportation Research Board, 2015)
Using Functional Classification to Enhance Naturalistic Driving Data Crash/Near Crash Algorithms
A persistent challenge in using naturalistic driving data is identifying events of interest from a large data set in a cost-effective manner. A common approach to this problem is to develop kinematic thresholds against ...
Variability in Crash/Near-Crash Risk Among Novice Drivers
Using video monitoring technologies, we investigated teenage driving risk variation during the first 18 months of independent driving. Driving data were collected on 42 teenagers whose vehicles were instrumented with ...
Drivers' Visual Behavior When Using Hand-Held and Hands-Free Cell Phones
This study investigated driver distraction and how the use of handheld (HH), portable hands-free (PHF), and integrated hands-free (IHF) cell phones affected the visual behavior of motor vehicle drivers. Method A naturalistic ...
Identifying Distraction: Kinematic Detection of Off-Road Eye Glances
(National Surface Transportation Safety Center for Excellence, 2015-10-08)
Visual attention is a key component of the driving task. Identifying times when the driver is not looking toward the forward views has been shown to be a successful indicator of distracted driving (Olson, Hanowski, Hickman, ...
