Integrated Program for the Interactive Highway Safety Design Model (IHSDM) snd Safety Research

There are two main parts to this project, one involving the IHSDM and a second involving several research tasks associated with human factors and transportation safety. Goals for the IHSDM are to: (1) conduct a user evaluation of the IHSDM interface, (2) conduct a user requirements analysis to identify functional enhancements to the DVM, and (3) specify revisions to the current DVM to incorporate a heavy vehicle component and other functionality enhancements. Goals for the safety research program are to gain a better understanding of driver attitudes and behavior regarding intersections and available countermeasures, and use this information to: (1) conduct driver/intersection task analyses and other intersection analyses, and (2) conduct literature searches in human factors transportation safety research areas.
