Background

• This pooled fund study will support groundbreaking research using data from the second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Naturalistic Driving Study (NDS). The goal is to advance the development of implementable solutions for State and Local transportation agencies with an emphasis on the broad areas of Safety, Operations, and Planning. This will be a Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) led pooled fund with very active participation from member State and Local agencies to determine the research that is undertaken. • SHRP 2 is a partnership of FHWA, the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO), and the Transportation Research Board (TRB). TRB completed the research, and now FHWA and AASHTO are jointly implementing the resulting SHRP 2 products. • SHRP 2 research conducted by TRB (2006-2015) had four focus areas: Safety, Capacity, Reliability, and Renewal. Costs for the four focus areas were over $200 million, of which approximately $70 million were devoted to the Safety Focus area –which produced a one-of-a-kind dataset that will be of value to highway practitioners and researchers from many fields in addition to safety – including, but not limited to, operations, and planning. Since the ‘system’ of driver-vehicle-roadway and driving conditions was captured, the value of these data should not only support research in the individual areas above but in a connected-automated roadway system as well. • These one-of-a-kind data are referred to as the SHRP 2 NDS Database and the SHRP 2 Roadway Information Database (RID), and together these data provide previously unavailable information to the highway community on how people actually drive in real-world conditions. Ultimately these data will provide decision makers with better information that will result in a more efficient, reliable, and inherently safer experience for road users. • The SHRP 2 NDS data provides information on – the driver and driving behavior, individual trip characteristics, including events (crashes and near-crashes), non-event ‘normal’ driving (exposure data), and vehicle characteristics and performance. • In the SHRP 2 NDS, 3500 volunteer-participants (females and males, with an age range of 16-90+), in 6 US locations (FL, IN, NC, NY, PA, WA) had their own vehicles outfitted with small video cameras, radar, GPS, and other sensors that collected data continuously (ignition on to off) as they went about their daily driving tasks. The majority of participants were in the study for 1 to 2 years. In total, 5.4 million trips were continuously recorded resulting in over 30 million miles travelled, and a million hours of video and sensor data. Altogether, two petabytes of driving data were collected. • The SHRP 2 RID is a geospatial database that provides – the context for the SHRP 2 NDS trips including roadway characteristics and features, crash histories, traffic volumes, weather, 511 information including work zones, and RR crossings. • The RID is comprised of two broad sources of data – new and acquired-existing data. New data were collected consistently in the six NDS study states and was quality assured to be within project specifications. The data elements collected included horizontal curvature, grade, lane type and width, shoulder type and paved shoulder width, intersection location and control type, all Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) signs, medians, barriers, rumble strips, and lighting. In addition, existing data were acquired from public agencies including the Highway Performance Monitoring System (HPMS) and state roadway files, 7 year crash histories, traffic volume, weather, 511 information including work zones, aerial imagery, and RR crossings. • The NDS and RID are geo-referenced and linkable, allowing for driver behavior to be matched with the roadway and temporal elements - e.g., surrounding traffic, work zones, and weather.

Objectives

The objectives of this pooled fund are: • to conduct groundbreaking research using the SHRP 2 NDS data and RID that will result in a more efficient, reliable, and inherently safer experience for road users, • to advance development of implementable solutions that address issues of high-priority to State and Local transportation agencies with an emphasis on the broad areas of Safety, Operations, and Planning, • to create a venue for highway practitioners in the above broad areas to share information and collaborate on research that advances their individual disciplines and addresses cross-cutting areas, including but not limited to, the advancement of a connected-automated highway system, and • to communicate and work with others in order to leverage research results and to work toward the common goal of a safer and more reliable experience for the road user.

Scope of Work

• This will be an FHWA led pooled fund with very active participation from member State and Local agencies to determine the research that is undertaken. • A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will be appointed to direct the pooled fund activities. Projects with an emphasis in three broad areas—Safety, Operations, and Planning—will be pursued. • The TAC will determine yearly funding allocations for research. Due to the uniqueness of this pooled fund and its crosscutting approach, the TAC should provide adequate representation of the focus areas in the portfolio of projects. The TAC may pursue activities focused on topics that overlap one or more of these areas. Such overlap may support advancing a connected and automated highway system or other high-priority areas identified by the TAC. • The TAC will define the research needs for the pooled fund, select the projects to be conducted, approve research teams, and oversee the work to ensure the objectives are met. • FHWA’s Safety Training and Analysis Center (STAC) will manage the pooled fund, and with oversight and approval of the TAC, develop work plans to address the TAC’s research needs, manage research contracting, and each individual project. • Projects will primarily focus on advancing implementable solutions for State and Local transportation agencies. This could include development and improvement of countermeasures, development and improvement of predictive models and design guides, policy recommendations, etc. • The TAC and STAC will identify appropriate mechanisms for the deployment and implementation of pooled fund results. • To support the TAC, it is envisioned that three assessments – one for safety, one for operations, and one for planning be initiated at the start of this pooled fund study. These assessments would be used to support the TAC in developing their research needs. • When appropriate, other datasets that could supplement SHRP 2 data will be used to meet project objectives. • This pooled fund will communicate and work with others in order to leverage research results and to work toward the common goal of a safer and more reliable experience for the road user.

Comments

• A minimum contribution of $50,000 per State per year for a 5-year period, or a total of $250,000 per State is suggested. Please contact Charles Fay for alternatives. Contact information below. • We have a waiver to allow use of 100% State Planning and Research (SP&R) Funds for this activity. • In addition, FHWA has committed, $1,000,000 over the 5 years of the project. • A webinar series is recorded and available on the FHWA STAC website: https://www.fhwa.dot.gov/research/resources/stac/ • Webinar schedule: o April 5, 2016 1:00PM-2:30PM (topic: Overview of NDS and RID data and Pooled Fund) o May 17, 2016 1:00PM-2:30PM (topics: Examples how NDS/RID data are being used) o June 28, 2016 1:00PM-2:00PM (topics: Examples how NDS/RID data are being used) o September 20, 2016 1:00PM-2:00PM (topics: Examples how NDS/RID data are being used) • If you have any questions related to this pooled fund, please contact Charles Fay at charles.fay@dot.gov or 202-493-3336.
