Mixed Method Approach to Develop a Framework for Adoption of Intelligent Speed-Assist Technology (ISAT)

Project Description

The goal of this research is to help the California State Senate, Assembly, and other public agency staff throughout California, make informed decisions about adopting policies around ISAT by researching potential benefits and costs associated with various policies in appropriate contexts. Specific objectives include:


1. Analyze and document the status and outcomes of initiatives around ISAT adopted by jurisdictions around the world and contexts where such implementations have been most successful.


2. Analysis of speeding-related collision data to document potential benefits of speed governors and ISAT deployment in different contexts.


3. Helping identify the varying contexts and users for whom ISAT should be used, not only based on the existing technologies but also considering political opposition.

Outputs

The expected research outputs are as follows.


- Identification of vulnerable road user interaction patterns during right turn on red (RTOR) maneuvers.


- Identification of contributing factors to RTOR-related conflicts and near misses, as observed through analysis of video data.


- Development of a framework to classify conflicts into severity levels utilizing surrogate safety measures.

Outcomes / Impacts

By looking at the adoption of intelligent speed assistance technology and how it can help pedestrian bicycle safety we will be able to better inform policy by helping policy understand why and how they can adopt intelligent speed assistance technology.
