TRB's Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) Report S2-S05-RR-1: Design of the In-Vehicle Driving Behavior and Crash Risk Study provides a summary of the key aspects of the planning effort supporting the SHRP 2 Naturalistic Driving Study (NDS). SHRP 2 Safety Project S05: Design of the In-Vehicle Driving Behavior and Crash Risk Study (Study Design) designed the SHRP 2 NDS, which will collect dataâ€"on the order of 1 petabyte (1,000 terabytes)â€"on "naturalistic," or real-world, driving behavior over a two-year period beginning in fall 2010.
The resulting data is expected to provide a wealth of information regarding driving behavior, lane departures, and intersection activities, which is anticipated to be of interest to transportation safety researchers and others for at least 20 years.
