Project: Feasibility study for equipment database and exposure data evaluation

Reference: S0802/V6

Last update: 19/12/2008 18:08:31

Objectives

The objective of this project is to assess the feasibility of developing two basic information resources to support accident analysis work. These two resources are:

i) A standard recording system to identify the safety equipment fitted to each model of vehicle; and,
ii) Information on the on-road use of different models of vehicle (ie exposure data) to enable calculation of accident risks.

This project should:
. Ascertain the most effective approach to gather the required data, outlining pros and cons of different approaches considered;
. Consider potential formats for data to be held and recommend a preferred methodology; and,
. Identify barriers to implementation.

Description

An assessment of the feasibility of developing two new information sources to support accident analysis work. These are data on safety equipment fitted to each model of vehicle; and, information on the on-road use of different models of vehicle.
