Human factors of in-vehicle driver information systems : an executive summary by Peter Green( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report summarizes a multiyear program concerning driver interfaces for future cars. The goals were to develop (1) human factors guidelines, (2) methods for testing safety and ease of use, and (3) a model that predicts human performance with these systems. After reviewing the human factors literature, focus groups were conducted to assess driver attitudes towards new information systems. Next, the extent to which these systems might reduce traffic accidents, improve traffic operations, and satisfy driver needs and wants was examined. Based on that effort and contract requirements, five functions were selected for further evaluation - route guidance, traffic information, road hazard warning, cellular phone, and vehicle monitoring

Methods for predicting truck speed loss on grades by T. D Gillespie( Book )

4 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Truck speed loss on grades reduces highway capacity and increses the risk of accidents. The rational design of a truck climbing lane as a solution to this problem requires means for predicting truck speed changes on grades. Experimental measurements of the speed loss of trucks operating on highways were conducted at 20 sites throughout the country. These data were analyzed to compare performance to present guidelines for highway design embodied in the AASHTO Policy on Geometric Design of Highways and Streets. The performance of the straight truck and tractor-trailer population is notably better than reflected in the AASHTO publication. Methods were developed for modeling the hill-climbing performance of the four major truck classes at the 12.5 and 50 percentile population level using empirically determined weight-to-power values. Speed-distance plots are provided for each class on constant grades, along with a simple computer program for calculating speed versus distance on arbitrary grades defined by the user
Short-haul trucks and driver fatigue : final report by D. L Massie( Book )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report has two main objectives. The first is to present data that may be used to create a definition of short-haul trucks in computerized data files. The second is to examine the prevalence of driver fatigue as coded in crash data files and relate it to parameters that define short-haul trucking operations. Tabulations were made of the numbers of large trucks registered in the United States and their annual travel using data from the 1992 Truck Inventory and Use Survey. Truck crash statistics were derived from the 1991-1993 Trucks Involved in Fatal Accidents file and, to a lesser extent, 1995 SafetyNet data. These tabulations were cross-classified by gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) class, area of operation and vehicle type, and crash involvement rates per truck and per mile were generated. Three possible definitions of short-haul trucks are proposed and the different definitions are compared in terms of percentage of registered trucks and miles traveled, fatal crash involvements, fatal involvement rates per truck and per mile, and prevalence of fatigue-related fatal crash involvements. The results may assist others in making decisions about hours of service regulations for the short-haul segment of the trucking industry
Quantification of thoracic response and injury : tests using human surrogate subjects( Book )

Dynamic testing of innovative solutions to child occupant protection problems by K Weber( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report brings together the results of two years of research into the effectiveness of innovative, unconventional, and/or misused child occupant protection systems. Concepts studied and discussed include child restraint securement practices, child restraint orientation relative to the vehicle and the crash, upper torso restraint, and neck and abdominal injury potential. Conclusions and recommendations deal with the dangerous consequences of some installation errors, the performance of seatbelt retractors and tightening devices, CR installation in vans and station wagons, the extended use of rear-facing restraints, the availability and fit of upper torso restraint for children, and the need for further research to guard against possible neck and abdominal injury

Methodology for road roughness profiling and rut depth measurement by T. D Gillespie( Book )

4 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This document presents an overview of a profiling and rut depth project. The objectives were to (1) assess the capabilities that are needed to measure profile and rut depth at highway speeds, (2) develop a design tailored to minimize life costs of the system, (3) build the system for delivery to FHWA, and (4) validate the system. A system based on the IBM PC microcomputer was designed. With the exception of a signal conditioning unit, the system is constructed from commercial components. The software controls the measurement of road profile and rut depth, the viewing of the data, and daily checks of the hardware integrity. A prototype--presently known as the PRORUT system--was built and delivered to the FHWA
