FAST DASH Safety Technology Evaluation Project #3: Novel Convex Mirrors

The third FMCSA’s Advanced System Testing utilizing a Data Acquisition System on the Highways (FAST DASH) program evaluation explored the feasibility and user acceptance of a novel mirror prototype to replace existing convex mirrors on a heavy vehicle. This was accomplished by examining the interaction between driver and object placement for FOV and distance estimations as described in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA’s) static testing method.
