IVHS TECHNOLOGIES: SOME IMPLICATIONS FOR R&D NEEDS AND OPPORTUNITIES IN MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY AND PRODUCTIVITY. IN: 1991 TAC ANNUAL CONFERENCE, PROCEEDINGS. VOLUME 4. SEPTEMBER 15-16, 1991, WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA

CONGRES ANNUEL 1991 DE L'ATC, COMPTE RENDU, VOLUME 4. SEPTEMBRE 15-16, 1991, WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, CANADA

Reducing deaths and injuries from motor vehicle accidents continues to represent a major challenge. While safety improvements have been ongoing, the transport industry has also been extending efforts for productivity improvements. Emerging technologies in vehicle design, traffic control, vehicle guidance and navigation hold potential for further improvements in road safety. Human factor considerations are essential to ensure that potential safety benefits of many of these technologies are realized. A number of institutions and agencies have a role to play in road safety, and have similar information and research needs. Coordinated, cooperative efforts are therefore required to maximize research benefits, and ensuring these results are taken into consideration as safety programs are developed or revised, including those involving IVHS.
