Abstract

This performance specification has been written based on two and one half years of work with the Federal Transit Administration, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, the Port Authority Transit Agency of Allegheny County and research conducted by Carnegie Mellon University. This document has a brief introduction to the project, followed by the performance specifications and explanatory text, and concluding with appendices to clarify and illustrate various aspects of the specifications. The full scope of the research project is summarized in the report ?evelopment and Testing of Performance Specifications for a Next Generation Side Collision Warning System? and the various scholarly publications and official reports listed in that report? bibliography. Performance specifications for Side Collision Warning Systems for transit buses define what data must be collected, the accuracy of the data, the functions of the algorithms, and the necessary outputs of the system in terms of signals, reliability, consistency and robustness.
