CUTR Webcast: Evaluation of Camera-Based Systems to Reduce Transit Bus Side Collisions

The findings from the NCTR project entitled Evaluation of Camera-Based Systems to Reduce Transit Bus Side Collisions are presented. Current transit bus mirrors have driver field-of-view limitations. These blind zones are the major contributing factor in sideswipe and side crashes involving transit buses. This NCTR project evaluated the effectiveness of camera-based systems to reduce transit bus side crashes by measuring the reduction of blind zones and analyzing the results of controlled driving tests and driver surveys using side-view video systems.
