  • Abstract:
    As part of the U.S. Department of Transportation's Intelligent Vehicle Initiative (IVI) program, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) investigated the human factors research needs for integrating in-vehicle safety and driver information technologies into usable systems that provide manageable information to the driver. This investigation included a workshop in December 1997 for IVI stakeholders (i.e., universities, automotive manufacturers, vendors, and contractors) and a preliminary assessment of infrastructure and in-vehicle requirements. This flyer summarizes the identified human factors research needs for integrated in-vehicle systems for Commercial Vehicle Operations (CVO), one of five configurations of in-vehicle safety and driver information systems. A complete review of the research needs for all five configurations can be found in the final report (FHWA-RD-98-178). These configurations were developed based on: (1) identified safety and driver information systems and functions; (2) a thorough literature review of past research and research gaps related to these in-vehicle systems; and (3) combining logical groups of basic and advanced safety and driver information functions in passenger cars, commercial trucks, and transit vehicles such as buses. Each candidate configuration was meant to provide clear safety benefits to the driver as well as a solid technical foundation for the system configurations for the IVI. The goal of the configuration described below is to provide an integrated set of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) technologies for drivers of commercial or heavy vehicles.
