Title: Roadway Safety Panel


1
Roadway Safety Panel
  • How can ITS assist in bridging vehicle technology
    with roadway design and function?

2
Acknowledgements
  • FHWA ITS Office
  • Jeff Paniati
  • Bill Jones

3
National Safety Challenge
  • Nearly 43,000 deaths per year from automobile
    accidents
  • 3 million people injured
  • Automobile accidents cost 230B
  • Federal State DOT Goal
  • reduce fatalities to fewer than 1 per every 100
    million vehicle miles traveled by 2008
  • ITS America has established a vision for zero
    fatalities

4
Current Research
5
Intelligent Vehicle Initiative (IVI)
  • Reduce motor vehicle crashes by accelerating
    the development of driver assistance safety
    products

6
Major IVI Initiatives
  • Naturalistic Driver Study
  • Rear End Collision Avoidance System Field
    Operational Test
  • Road Departure Collision Avoidance System Field
    Operational Test
  • Vehicle-Infrastructure Cooperative Intersection
    Research

7
IVI RESULTS
  • Auto Companies Concluded
  • Vehicle/Infrastructure Cooperation is
    Essential For
  • Intersection Collision Prevention
  • Lane Departure Prevention
  • These 2 Account for 75 of
  • Vehicle Crashes

8
New Opportunity
9
Vehicle Infrastructure Integration (VII)
  • Confluence of three areas.
  • Intelligent Vehicle Initiative crash avoidance
  • Emphasis on improved operations
  • Evolution in telecommunications technology

10
The Concept
  • A cooperative public-private venture between auto
    industry and the USDOT / State Departments of
    Transportation
  • Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) install
    communications link in all new vehicles
  • On Board Units (OBU)
  • Public sector facilitates installation of
    communications link on roadside
  • Road Side Units (RSU)

11
Equal Opportunity
  • PUBLIC SECTOR
  • Obtain Data on Roadways to
  • Improve Operations, Maint., etc. --
  • Implement Early Safety Features
  • Ultimately Crash Prevention
  • PRIVATE SECTOR
  • Auto Companies
  • A New Business Services to Their
  • Customers Safer Vehicles
  • Other Businesses

12

13
Vehicle to Roadside Communication -- DSRC
  • FCC has allocated 75MHz for
  • Safety Applications (1st priority)
  • Private Applications
  • DSRC Key Standards Complete
  • FCC ruled on licensing (Dec., 2003)
  • Testing new DSRC devices in 2004

14
HOW IS DATA USED BY PUBLIC SECTOR
  • Safety - Early Uses
  • Intersection Collision Warning
  • Emergency Vehicle Signal Pre-emption
  • Safety - Later
  • Intersection Collision Prevention
  • Lane Departure Prevention

15
HOW IS DATA USEDBY PRIVATE SECTOR
  • Auto Co.s Provide Services to
  • Drivers (Their Customers)
  • Traveler Info
  • Drive-Thru Payment Gas, Food, Banking
  • Download Files, Infotainment
  • Diagnostic Data

16
Expected VII Benefits
  • Enables safety applications
  • Provides data key to improved mobility
  • Enables new private businesses

17
A WIN - WIN
  • Public Gets
  • Safety Technology
  • Potentially Preventing 75 of all
  • Fatalities
  • Better Managed Transportation
  • Network
  • Auto Co.s Get
  • A New Business Opportunity
  • Safer Vehicles

18
Some Examples
  • Traditional
  • Road Departure
  • Construct rumble strips on shoulders
  • Signage
  • Speed Limits
  • Install post and mount sign
  • VII Concept
  • Road Departure
  • Use GIS/GPS Technology to develop virtual rumble
    strips
  • Signage
  • Use GIS/GPS Sign Inventory and post sign messages
    on heads-up display.

19
VII There Are Issues
  • Outreach
  • Who else needs to be part of the discussion?
  • Business Models / Plan
  • Who will own, install, and operate the
    communications system?
  • How will it be paid for / self-sustaining?
  • Nationwide Deployment all roads, both urban
    rural
  • Architecture
  • Who will own and operate the database?
  • How will the data flow from the vehicle to the
    roadside and to a central server?
  • Privacy Who owns the data?

20
VII Next Steps
  • Short-Term
  • Develop Roadmap / Plan
  • Prepare Conceptual System Design
  • Initiate DSRC Tests
  • Formalize Government-Industry Partnership
  • Long-Term
  • Demonstrations
  • Operational Tests
  • Synchronized Deployment

21
The Key Public-Private Partnership
  • Industries
  • Transportation Sector
  • Automotive Industry
  • America - Europe - Asia Pacific
