The Umtri research review by University of Michigan( )

Anthropometry of motor vehicle occupants( Book )

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 110 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
Sources of exposure data for safety analysis by K. L Campbell( Book )

Short-haul trucks and driver fatigue final report by Dawn L Massie( Book )

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

5 editions published between 1985 and 2005 in English and held by 101 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

The international road roughness experiment : establishing correlation and a calibration standard for measurements by M. W Sayers( Book )

Potential safety applications of advanced technology by P Fancher( Book )

5 editions published between 1993 and 2005 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report identifies and evaluates the application of new technology to known highway safety problems, including an assessment of functional requirements, feasibility, costs and potential safety benefits. The findings of the study include: 1) identifying prevalent crash types, 2) developing descriptions of postulated countermeasure systems, 3) relating these systems and their functional requirements to advanced technology, and 4) assessing reductions in risks and severity in selected crash types
Driver distraction, aggression, and fatigue : a synthesis of the literature and guidelines for Michigan planning by Frederick M Streff( Book )

Michigan safety belt use immediately following implementation of standard enforcement by David W Eby( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Safety implications of various truck configurations by P Fancher( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

5 editions published between 1987 and 2005 in English and held by 21 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
Matching traffic safety strategies to youth characteristics : a literature review of cognitive development by David W Eby( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Automobile industry retail price equivalent and indirect cost multipliers( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report develops a modified multiplier, referred to as an indirect cost (IC) multiplier, which specifically evaluates the components of indirect costs that are likely to be affected by vehicle modifications associated with environmental regulation. A range of IC multipliers are developed that 1) account for differences in the technical complexity of required vehicle modifications and 2) adjust over time as new technologies become assimilated into the automotive production process
