Abstract
The Run-Off-Road Collision Avoidance Using IVHS Countermeasures program is a four year program sponsored by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The primary goal of the program is to develop practical performance specifications for roadway departure collision avoidance systems. This paper describes the results to date of our efforts to:
  1. Characterize the problem of roadway departure crashes
  2. Develop and test technology for preventing these crashes
  3. Model countermeasure system performance
  4. Develop preliminary performance specifications
