Transit IVI Program Technical Support

Through the National Intelligent Vehicle Initiative (IVI), the U.S. Department Of Transportation intends to reduce vehicle crashes by helping drivers operate vehicles more safely and effectively. Under this project, the Volpe Center: will continue to provide management and technical support to the Transit IVI Program. Transit IVI is designed to rapidly develop and deploy advanced safety systems that will help drivers operate buses and demand response vehicles more safely and efficiently. Technical support includes development and distribution of a quarterly newsletter on the status of Transit IVI research programs, Transit system integration testing, and development of integrated display modalities for Collision warning I /-/J-d systems, as well as coordination with IVI Forward and Side Collision Warning System project. This project also supports an analysis of the human factors concerns of Transit IVI collision warning systems, and the transfer of systems from bus fleets to light rail vehicles. Project is funded under the National ITS Program, administered by the Department's ITS Joint Program Office.
