Samenvatting A team that includes San Mateo County Transit District (SamTrans), University of California PATH Program (PATH), California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), and Gillig Corporation has been selected by the US DOT to develop and validate performance and technical requirement specifications for a Frontal Collision Warning System (CWS) for transit buses. Accident statistics tracked by SamTrans in recent years indicate frontal collisions can result in significant property damage and liability. In addition to frontal collision, passenger falls resulting from emergency braking also contribute to an increased potential for passenger injuries and liability. The goals of the collision warning system for this project are to (a) address imminent crash warning, (b) provide warnings for smoother manoeuvring, and (c) provide warnings when a bus is too close to a forward vehicle. While providing imminent crash warnings is the primary goal of the project, potential extension of the collision warning system for facilitating smooth manoeuvres and for added safety features is also considered. This paper discusses the concept of frontal collision warning system for transit buses, the scope of the frontal collision warning project and reports key findings.
