In-Vehicle Dynamic Curve Speed Warnings at High Risk Rural Curves

Status:  Active
Project Start Date:  06/10/2016

Summary:

This project seeks to determine the efficacy of in-vehicle dynamic curve speed warnings as deployed on a smartphone app. First, a warning method must be selected that is effective but also does not distract the driver from navigating the curve. This will be incorporated into an app capable of displaying the warning to drivers based on their speed and distance to the curve. The app will be evaluated using rural Minnesota drivers in a naturalistic field study. Data will be collected to determine how well the system affects change in the drivers' behavior.
