  • Abstract:
    Ongoing and recently completed research and development indicate that collision avoidance systems offer the potential for significantly reducing motor vehicle crashes. Preliminary estimates by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) show that rear-end, lane change, and roadway departure crash avoidance systems have the potential, collectively to reduce motor vehicle crashes by one-sixth, or about 1.2 million crashes annually. Such systems may take the form of warning drivers, recommending control actions, and introducing temporary or partial automated control of vehicles in hazardous situations. Recognizing that these and other driver assistance systems potentially offer major benefits, the U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) is embarking on a new program called the Intelligent Vehicle Initiative (IVI). The U.S. DOT intends to jointly define the program plan and conduct the IVI in cooperation with the motor vehicle, trucking, and bus industries, State and local governments, and other stakeholders to facilitate the research, development, testing, evaluation, and deployment of safety- and mobility-enhancing systems. Sensing, processing, communications, actuation, and control technologies will be integrated, installed, and evaluated in vehicles and on roadways. These integrated technologies will be linked to in-vehicle driver displays that adhere to well-founded human factors requirements.
