QUANTIFYING NORMAL DRIVING BEHAVIOR FROM SITE-BASED DIGITAL VIDEO CAMERAS

This article describes the System for Assessment of the Vehicle Motion Environment (SAVME), an empirical measurement tool developed at the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) that can be used for documenting vehicle movement and positioning in proximity to other vehicles. Data from special roadside cameras is captured and processed and is used for quantifying natural driving behavior. The technology has a number of applications for research, such as pre-crash safety, driver intervention, and collision warning. The article gives an overview of the how the SAVME process works and what the resulting dataset provides.
