DEVELOPMENT OF ANALYTICAL AIDS FOR MINIMIZATION OF SIGNLE VEHICLE ACCIDENTS

This report is a summary of the entire research effort and the preceding nine technical reports VJ-2251-V-1 through 9, which describe the development of the Highway-Vehicle-Object Simulation Model (HVOSM), some of the uses of HVOSM, to date, and lists the forty users of HVOSM in both the U. S. and foreign countries. The use of HVOSM has many applications to field highway design, both in the evaluation and/or establishment of general criteria and the optimization of design criteria in specific locations which cannot be readily remedied, by standard criteria due to safety, operational, or economic constraints.
