  • Abstract:
    This report presents the final results of an independent evaluation of the Volvo Intelligent Vehicle Initiative (IVI) Field Operational Test (FOT), sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT). The intent of the overall IVI program, a major component of the Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) program, is to improve the safety and efficiency of motor vehicle operations significantly by reducing the probability of motor vehicle crashes. These safety improvements could also show secondary benefits such as increased transportation mobility, productivity, or other operational improvements. In 1999, USDOT entered into a cooperative agreement with a partnership led by Volvo Trucks North America and US Xpress to test collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and advanced electronic braking systems in a Generation 0 FOT of advanced intelligent vehicle safety systems (IVSS). These systems, which were in or nearing commercial production at the time of the FOT, were designed for use in commercial trucks. An important activity of the IVI program is to evaluate the effectiveness of IVSS as they are deployed in the FOTs and estimate the societal benefits and costs, if the IVSS were to be deployed across the entire national fleet of heavy vehicles. Thus, the USDOT contracted with Battelle to perform an independent evaluation of the Volvo IVI FOT.
