In-Depth Analysis of Crash Causation Factors Using SHRP2 (Year 1): Rear-End Striking Crashes

Principal Investigator: Thomas Seacrist, MBE, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia

Utilizing data from the Strategic Highway Research Program 2 (SHRP2) Naturalistic Driving Study, this study will quantify the behavioral, environmental, and experiential factors contributing to rear-end striking crashes among teen, young adult, and older drivers. The long-term objective is to inform the development of driver-specific Advanced Driver Assistance Systems that account for the unique errors exhibited by these risky driving groups.
