Naturalistic Driving Study: Field Data Collection

This report describes the six Strategic Highway Research Program 2 (SHRP 2) naturalistic driving study (NDS) data collection centers and documents their data collection activities and strategies. The study centers were located in Bloomington, Indiana; State College, Pennsylvania; Buffalo, New York; Tampa, Florida; Durham, North Carolina; and Seattle, Washington. They collected data from more than 3,000 volunteer participants and their vehicles over a 3-year period. Information is provided on the recruitment and assessment of test participants, installation of NDS data acquisition systems into participant vehicles, management of the enrolled participants and their vehicles, retrieval of data from the vehicle fleet, and lessons learned. The report will be of interest to analysts wanting background on where and how the NDS data were collected and to researchers planning future large-scale NDS projects.
