RESEARCH SAFETY VEHICLE- PHASE 1. VOLUME 2 OF 3

The program definition foundation for a research safety vehicle to the mid-1980's is described in this report. The current U.S. accident situation as well as the automobile usage trends have been carefully investigated and were projected to the mid-1980's. Benefit-cost-techniques and their applicability to automobile safety measures were considered and led to a benefit-cost-evaluation based on given cost consistent conditions. The decision for the optimal engine concept is based on a system-analysis for power plants which is included in this report. (A). /TRRL/
