FMCSA Advanced System Testing Utilizing a Data Acquisition System on the Highways

This effort will conduct a fast-turnaround and independent evaluations of promising safety technologies aimed at commercial vehicle operations. In FY 2010 the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) established a cooperative agreement with the National Surface Transportation Safety Center for Excellence (NSTSCE) to test safety technologies. One of the goals of the NSTSCE is to develop and disseminate advanced transportation safety techniques and innovations through the FMCSA Advanced System Testing utilizing a Data Acquisition System on the Highways (FAST DASH) program. This program is expected to reduce significantly both the time and the resources required to conduct tests and independent evaluations of potentially life-saving safety technologies.
