Connected Vehicle Data Safety Applications

Today’s connected vehicles have an abundance of electronics and sensors that can passively collect data on driving behaviors, mechanical status, and physical roadway conditions. These data can potentially help safety professional better understand relationships between driving events and risk. This project will explore roadway safety applications of connected vehicle data provided by Wejo for July and October 2019 for the entire state of Texas. Wejo is a connected vehicle data vendor that aggregates data from automotive manufacturers and then licenses its use to customers. The Wejo data consist of vehicle movement data with 3-second waypoint frequency and driver event data for individual vehicle trips. From these, this project will look at actual travel speeds, seat belt usage, harsh braking/acceleration by date/time, location, and vehicle year/make/model. Crash data will be spatially related to driving events to explore possible statistic relationships between driving events/behavior and crash risk.
