Safety of IVHS: Methods for Determination of Accident Levels for AVCS-1 Devices

by Anthony Hitchcock, Univ of California, Richmond, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Applications of Advanced Technologies in Transportation Engineering

Abstract: This paper discusses ways in which the safety impact of Intelligent Vehicle/Highway Systems (IVHS) devices can be estimated by interpreting existing statistics. This is needed at many points during development of devices for evaluation, which improves design. In each case sketched out, it is found that there is a need for data which could be collected but is in fact not available. As indicated, the author has been trying to remedy this in one case.
