Workshop Report: Standards and Performance Metrics for On-Road Autonomous Vehicles

October 27, 2022
Craig I. Schlenoff, Suzanne Lightman, Vinh Nguyen, Prem Rachakonda, Tao Zhang, Omar Aboul-Enein, Nicholas Barbosa, C Cameron Miller, Daniel Sawyer, Ann Virts
On-road autonomous vehicles are expected to significantly influence key aspects of everyday life. However, these complex systems can pose a safety risk in the event of unexpected system performance. Therefore, NIST held the Standards and Performance

Deterministic Intra-Vehicle Communications: Timing and Synchronization

July 26, 2020
Hamid Gharavi
As we power through to the future, in-vehicle communications' reliance on speed is becoming a challenging predicament. This is mainly due to the ever-increasing number of electronic control units (ECUs), which will continue to drain network capacity, hence

In-Vehicle Software Defined Networking: An Enabler for Data Interoperability

June 27, 2018
Khalid Halba, Charif Mahmoudi
Future transportation systems evolve new in-vehicle network designs are required to handle the heterogeneous data generated by different Electronic Control Modules (ECUs). Enabling interaction between these data sources can trigger innovation and the

Cooperative Vehicular Networking: A Survey

March 8, 2018
Hamid Gharavi
With the remarkable progress of cooperative communication technology in recent years, its transformation to vehicular networking is gaining momentum. Such a transformation has brought a new research challenge in facing the realization of cooperative

Validation and Verification of Automated Road Vehicles

April 2, 2016
Edward Griffor, Agaram Venkatesh, Frank Barickman, Felix Felix Fahrenkrog
Ubiquitous, commercial deployment of automated road vehicles is desirable in order to realize their potential benefits such as crash avoidance, congestion mitigation, reduced environment impact, reduced driver stress, and increased driver productivity. A

Deogratias Kibira, Yung-Tsun T. Lee, Jennifer L. Marshall, Allison Barnard Feeney, Larry Avery, Allie Jacobs
To address the inadequacy of existing standards regarding interior layout design, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the National Institute for

Multi-scale measurement for tensile behaviors of glass fiber composites at high rate loading: Fiber fragmentation behaviors in epoxy resin

May 19, 2015
Jae Hyun Kim, Steven P. Mates, Nathanael A. Heckert, Walter G. McDonough, Gale A. Holmes
High strength and light weight composite materials used in various structural components of aviation and automotive applications deform under high rate loading conditions during collision. Since composite structures using continuous fibers are constituted

Modeling and Simulation for Improving Ambulance Patient Compartment Design Standards

April 12, 2013
Deogratias Kibira, Yung-Tsun T. Lee, Allison Barnard Feeney, Jennifer L. Marshall, Larry Avery, Jennifer Moore, Carlotta Boone
Emergency medical service providers riding in ambulance patient compartments, while caring for patients, are at high risk of suffering injuries in case of a crash or sudden maneuver. Seat belts are one way to reduce the occurrence and severity of injuries

Thermal Decomposition of 1-Pentyl Radicals at High Pressures and Temperatures

September 27, 2012
Andrea Comandini, Iftikhar A. Awan, Jeffrey A. Manion
Complementary shock-tube studies at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) have been used to examine the decomposition reactions of the 1-pentyl radical at temperatures of 833 K to 1130 K

The Decomposition of 2-Pentyl and 3-Pentyl Radicals

July 15, 2012
Jeffrey A. Manion, Iftikhar A. Awan
The isomerization and decomposition reactions of 2-pentyl and 3-pentyl radicals have been studied in a single-pulse shock tube over a temperature range of 973 K to 1121 K and pressures of 120 kPa to 800 kPa. The results represent the first direct study of
