Onboard Safety System Effectiveness Evaluation

This research study evaluated three vehicle-based driver assistance technologies that aim to improve the safety of in-service commercial motor vehicle (CMV) operations. These commonly deployed onboard safety systems (OBSS)—lane departure warning (LDW), roll stability control (RSC), and forward collision warning (FCW)—were examined using existing crash data acquired directly from participating motor carriers. The OBSSs were installed on Class 7 and 8 trucks and the data were collected while drivers operated their normal revenue-producing routes.
