Development and Evaluation of a Portable Intrusion Detection and Warning System

This project will provide technical support to evaluate a driver feedback device for passive grade crossings that was developed under the Safety Innovations Deserving Exploratory Analysis (IDEA) program, Project 09. This task will include testing of specific components, systems, and requirements as described in the IDEA project final report. These criteria include general specifications, vehicle, train, and environmental sensing as they pertain to specified capabilities. Determination of day/night use, precision/reliability, camera mounting structures, and vandal-proofing will be reviewed for the commercialization of the product. This was an FY08-09 project.
