Naturalistic Driving Study: Technical Coordination and Quality Control

This report describes the technical coordination and quality control carried out by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) for the Strategic Highway Research Program 2 (SHRP 2) Naturalistic Driving Study (NDS). This project encompassed procurement of the data acquisition system (DAS) and all associated installation and driver assessment equipment; coordination of human subjects protections; participant recruitment; training and coordination of the six site contractors that carried out participant enrollment, instrumentation, and data retrieval; data management; data processing; and quality control. From October 2010 through November 2013, the study collected continuous driving information on more than 3,000 light-vehicle drivers, covering about 50 million miles of driving in the six study sites. In this report, potential users of the SHRP 2 NDS data or findings will find a summary of data collection methods and procedures, instrumentation, quality control, and project management.
