Development of Baseline Safety Performance Measures for Highly Automated Commercial Vehicles

To support the testing and potential deployment of highly automated commercial vehicles (HACVs) and truck platoon operations, FMCSA will identify baseline safety measures for HACVs and truck platoon configurations. In this project, researchers will analyze and evaluate previous naturalistic driving data to determine vehicle safety performance measures that could be attributable to the action or inaction of the driver, including but not limited to: exceeding the speed limit, lane deviations, following too closely, emergency braking, emergency steering, and other discernible crash avoidance maneuvers.
