The UMTRI research review by University of Michigan ( )
in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Matching traffic safety strategies to youth characteristics a literature review of cognitive development by David W Eby ( )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Anthropometry of motor vehicle occupants ( Book )
2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Automobile industry retail price equivalent and indirect cost multipliers ( )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 161 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
Electronic recorder study ( )

Dynamic testing of innovative solutions to child occupant protection problems by K Weber ( Book )
2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Human factors of in-vehicle driver information systems an executive summary by Paul Green ( Book )
4 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 101 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 )
5 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Short-haul trucks and driver fatigue final report by Dawn L Massie ( Book )
3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Quantification of thoracic response and injury : tests using human surrogate subjects ( Book )
1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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 93 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
Modeling intersection crash counts and traffic volume by Hans C Joksch ( Book )
4 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Influence of size and weight variables on the stability and control properties of heavy trucks ( Book )

Driver distraction, aggression, and fatigue : a synthesis of the literature and guidelines for Michigan planning by Frederick M Streff ( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Review of Mexican experience with the regulation of large commercial motor vehicles ( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The objective of this research was to review and summarize the most current information on the Mexican experience with changes in truck size and weight limits and to evaluate the potential applicability to size and weight limits in the United States. The major activities involved in this research were to investigate truck size and weight limits in Mexico, determine the concerns of U.S. border states, develop options to address those concerns, and conduct Mexico and U.S. analysis to determine what the United States can learn from the Mexican truck size and weight experience
Potential safety applications of advanced technology ( Book )
4 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 28 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
Patterns of child restraint use in Michigan by David W Eby ( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Safety implications of various truck configurations by Paul S Fancher ( Book )
3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
