IVBSS program enters second phase

The Research and Innovative Technology administrator for the US Department of Transportation, Paul Brubaker, has approved the second phase of the Integrated Vehicle-Based Safety Systems (IVBSS) program.

Sponsored by the US DOT RITA Joint Program Office, the IVBSS program is a four-year, two-phase cooperative research effort to develop and field test an integrated safety system designed to prevent rear-end, lane change/merge and road departure crashes on light vehicles and heavy commercial trucks.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration made the announcement at the 2008 Integrated Vehicle-Based Safety Systems (IVBSS) public meeting being held in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

The agenda of the public meeting, facilitated by the IVBSS Team, includes presentations on the results of the most recent vehicle verification testing of integrated crash warning systems for light vehicles and heavy commercial trucks, as well as providing a comprehensive overview of Field Operational Testing for Phase II. More than 110 stakeholders and program participants are in attendance.
