THE ROLE OF INNOVATION AND STATISTICAL METHODOLOGY IN SAFETY ASSESSMENT PROJECTS 2001-06-0216
This paper discusses safety assessment projects which are characterized by availability of advanced vehicle information technologies. Present and future crash event recording situations are discussed to illustrate the use of innovation and statistical analysis of appropriate data for safety evaluations.
Present development, testing and implementation of in-vehicle event recording devices are discussed in terms of new and emerging technologies and the innovations needed to promote improved data quality and ease of use in safety assessments. Approaches to evaluating statistical properties of new data sources are also discussed.
Present and future computer technology and software, event recording devices and data for analysis are advancing rapidly but still there is a need for innovation and study of statistical properties of data sources.
