Abstract

This paper describes a program to develop and test an integrated crash warning system that addresses rear-end, lane change, and roadway departure crashes for passenger cars and heavy commercial trucks. One of the goals of this program is to facilitate the deployment of integrated crash warning systems by creating performance specifications and objective test procedures, and estimating potential safety benefits for integrated safety systems. In support of this goal, equations for the safety benefits estimation methodology are introduced and test scenarios derived from national crash database statistics are delineated. The approach, performance metrics and independent measurement system used to conduct objective tests are also discussed.
