Integrated Vehicle-Based Safety Systems heavy-truck field operational test key findings report.
This document presents key findings from the heavy-truck field operational test conducted as part of the Integrated Vehicle-Based Safety Systems program. These findings are the result of analyses performed by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute to examine the effect of a...
Teen driving exposure in Michigan demographic and behavioral characteristics.
Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death and a leading cause of non-fatal injury for teenagers in the United States. Understanding teen crashes requires a good measure of crash risk. The measure of exposure that is used in the calculation of risk estimates determines what information...
Driving cessation and caregiving continuum perspectives of father/daughter dyads.
With the aging of our population, increasing numbers of older adults will confront the need to limit and stop driving, despite a strong preference to continue. For many families, this transition places a burden on family members who are called on to assume an informal caregiving role by assisting...
A stochastic visco-hyperelasitc model of human placenta tissue for finite element crash simulations
Placental abruption is the most common cause of fetal deaths in motor-vehicle crashes, but studies on the mechanical properties of human placenta are rare. This study presents a new method of developing a stochastic viscohyperelastic material model of human placenta tissue using a combination of...
Drowsy driving among older adults a literature review.
The goals of this literature review are to better understand the risk factors associated with drowsy driving, particularly those strongly affecting the older driver population, and to serve as the background information for the development of a questionnaire on this topic. The review is divided...
