U.S. Department of Transportation to hold public meeting on integrated vehicle-b
Creation date: 29 March 2007
The U.S. Department of Transportation (U.S. DOT) will host a two-day public meeting 25-26 April 2007 in Ypsilanti, Michigan to present results from the Integrated Vehicle Based Safety Systems (IVBSS) program, which got underway in late 2005. This programme is one of the nine first-tier ITS research initiatives being sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration's Joint Program Office.
One of the major goals of the IVBSS program is to work with industry to accelerate the introduction of integrated, vehicle-based, safety systems into the U.S. light vehicle and heavy commercial vehicle fleets. The integrated safety system being developed and tested as part of the IVBSS program is aimed at reducing the number and severity of rear-end, road departure, and lane change crashes.
The meeting is co-organized by ITS America, the U.S. DOT and the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute. During the meeting, the U.S. DOT and IVBSS team members will summarize results from the first program year, highlight planned activities for the current year, and provide an overview of the planned field operational test. It will also include presentations on the light vehicle and heavy truck system development process, driver-vehicle interface development, as well as the development of integrated system functional requirements, performance specifications and objective tests to verify system performance.
Additional information on the program and the meeting, including a draft agenda, is available at http://www.itsa.org/ivbss.html
