The document is Volume 1 of a 5 volume report documenting the results of the Multidisciplinary Accident Investigation (MDAI) Report Automation contract. It contains a review and discussion of all contract activities. Over 4500 accident investigations have been conducted to date (October 1972). These reports, sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Motor Vehicle Manufacturers Association are being edited and processed into a common data base. Both NHTSA and MVMA member companies are being provided direct and simultaneous access to the data base through the University of Michigans time-shared computer system via remote batch terminals and interactive terminals (e.g., teletypes). The file consists of over 800 variables and are derived from the Collision Performance and Injury Report Revision 3 plus certain added pre-collision data.
