To conduct performance and maintenance research for add-on sensors that support various levels of automation in CMVs.
Automated CMVs, currently still in the implementation and testing process, require additional sensors to “observe” their driving environment. Many of these sensors (radar, light detection and ranging [LIDAR], cameras, etc.) are mounted on the exterior of the vehicle. These sensors must be calibrated and maintained such that they...
To analyze and evaluate data from previous naturalistic driving studies to determine parameters that should be included in future automated commercial motor vehicle (CMV) and truck platoon naturalistic driving studies and pilot tests.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has conducted numerous naturalistic driving studies to assess specific driver-related issues (e.g.,...
