Support Services for the Fhwa Human Factors Programs, Phase I

This contract provided support to FHWA's Human Factors Team to monitor off-site research contracts and conduct on-site research in the Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center (TFHRC) Human Factors Laboratory facilities. A significant portion of the off-site contract research involved Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) studies. These were in the areas of Advanced Traveler Information Systems (ATIS), In-Vehicle Information Systems (IVIS), and Advanced Traffic Management Systems (ATMS). Likewise, a large portion of the on-site research involved ITS studies. These were in the areas of ATIS, IVIS, ATMS and the integration of in-vehicle information with information coming from outside of the vehicle. The major products of this effort were ITS-related research reports, inputs to ITS design guidelines and standards, and inputs to ITS-related traffic models.
