As part of the SHRP2 Tuesdays Webinar Series, TRB conducted a webinar on April 8, 2014, from 2:00pm to 3:30pm ET that explored the Roadway Information Database (RID)
component of the SHRP 2 Naturalistic Driving Study (NDS)
View recorded webinar
was populated with roadway and other contextual information from the six field study sites in the SHRP 2 Naturalistic Driving Study (NDS)
. The NDS gathered real-time, in-vehicle data from 3,147 participants in 6 sites across the United States who made 5.4 million trips covering almost 50 million miles. The RID
includes new roadway data collected and quality assured by SHRP 2. It also contains existing data - such as roadway inventories, crash histories, traffic, weather, work zones, 511 information, and safety enforcement laws - acquired from government, public, and private sources.
This geographic information system (GIS) database, which will be linked to the NDS database, will make it possible to relate driver behavior to characteristics of the roadway. Learning more about this relationship is critical to understanding how to diminish crash risk in the roadway design process.
