    • Abstract:
      As the Federal Government's chief commercial vehicle safety agency, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration's (FMCSA), Office of Research and Technology (R&T) focuses on saving lives and reducing injuries by helping to prevent crashes involving large trucks and motorcoaches. The FMCSA will achieve this result by developing its expertise in regulation and enforcement, education and outreach, data collection and analysis, and research and technology transfer (i.e., encouraging other government agencies and the private sector to use innovative R&T products to promote safe transportation). This Info Brief describes the organization and focus of the R&T Program and how its efforts support the Agency's mission and safety goal. The FMCSA's Research and Technology Program is a key element in achieving the Agency's safety goal and meeting the related strategic objectives. Recognizing that highway crashes often stem from several interrelated factors and not just a single cause, the Agency's R&T Program provides critical data and research to identify and address those causal factors. The Program supports the Agency's diverse safety initiatives and emphasizes delivering safety in new ways, particularly through the development, evaluation, and deployment of advanced safety technologies.
