Feds grant funds for study of Integrated Vehicle-Based Safety System
Handling trucking accident injury cases in Georgia, I see the aftermath of plenty of crashes that could have been avoided if drivers had a timely "wakeup call." Now the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and several corporations are funding a University of Michigan study of a high-tech system to help car and truck drivers avoid crashes by warning them of potential road dangers and assessing their options. The Integrated Vehicle-Based Safety System being tested is designed to "warn drivers when they are about to leave the roadway, are in danger of colliding with another vehicle while attempting a lane change, or are at risk of colliding with the vehicle ahead." See David Goodman’s AP report on Mlive.com.
