Quickly advancing automated driving system (ADS) technologies are expected to positively affect transportation safety. ADS includes a plethora of applications that affect safety, mobility, human factors, and environmental aspects of driving.
TRB's joint publication of the National Cooperative Highway Research Program and the Behavioral Transportation Safety Cooperative Research Program is titled NCHRP Research Report 1001/BTSCRP Research Report 2: Framework for Assessing Potential Safety Impacts of Automated Driving Systems. The report describes a framework to help state and local agencies assess the safety impact of ADS and is designed to guide them on how to adapt the framework for a variety of scenarios.
Supplemental to the report are a Video describing the project’s assessment framework, a Proof of Concept Results Document, an Implementation Plan, and a Future Research Needs Document.
