Instrumented On-Road Study of Motorcycle Riders

The objective of this project is to explore the feasibility of collecting naturalistic data from motorcycle riders, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently funded a pilot study in which instrumentation was adapted for motorcycles and data were successfully collected from several instrumented motorcycles for a short period of time. In this project, 160 motorcycles will be instrumented to collect naturalistic data for one year, continuously, whenever the motorcycle is ridden. The objective of this project is to conduct the necessary data collection, data reduction, analyses, and reporting in order to collect data on real world motorcycle riding behaviors to identify countermeasures to reduce unsafe riding behavior.
