Evaluation of 2009 New York crash data reported to the MCMIS crash file
This report is part of a series evaluating the data reported to the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) Crash File undertaken by the Center for National Truck and Bus Statistics at the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute. The earlier studies showed that...
Evaluation of usability of IntelliDrive probe vehicle data for transportation systems performance analysis
This paper assesses various issues associated with the use of IntelliDrive probe vehicle data generated according to existing protocols. These evaluations are conducted using a virtual IntelliDrive probe vehicle data generator implemented within the Paramics microscopic traffic simulation model....
Evaluation of Hybrid-III 6YO ATD chest jacket shape and position
In previous work, belt fit on the Hybrid-III six-year-old (6YO) anthropomorphic test device (ATD) was found to depend on the positioning of the chest jacket of the ATD. Moreover, differences were noted between jackets manufactured by Denton-ATD and First Technology Safety Systems (FTSS). The...
Driving exposure by driver age in Michigan
Background: This study compared driving exposure betweentwo high-crash-risk groups (16-17 and 18-24-yearolds), with a low-crash-risk group (35-64-year-olds). In addition, patterns of association between driving exposure measures and demographic and driving behavior variables were examined. Methods...

This report is part of a series evaluating the data reported to the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) Crash File undertaken by the Center for National Truck and Bus Statistics at the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute. Earlier studies have shown that...
Evaluation of the CSA 2010 operational model test
In accordance with its primary mission to reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities involving large trucks and buses, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) initiated the Comprehensive Safety Analysis 2010 (CSA 2010) Operational Model Test. The program focused on initiating contact...
Evaluation of 2009 Oregon crash data reported to the MCMIS crash file
This report is part of a series evaluating the data reported to the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) Crash File undertaken by the Center for National Truck and Bus Statistics at the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute. Earlier studies have shown that...
A study of the difference between nominal and actual hand forces in two-handed sagittal plane whole-body exertions
Given a task posture, changes in hand force magnitude and direction with regard to joint locations result in variations in joint loads. Previous work has quantified considerable vertical force components during push/pull exertions. The objective of this work was to quantify and statistically model...
