The Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center will host a workshop titled ‘Utilizing Various Data Sources for Surface Transportation Human Factors Research’ on November 6-7, 2013 in McLean, VA. This workshop is being sponsored by FHWA’s Office of Safety R&D and the Exploratory Advanced Research (EAR) Program. This workshop will focus on using various data sources such as driving simulators, field studies/field operational tests and naturalistic driving studies for research related to (1) behavior of drivers and other road users, (2) interaction between drivers and infrastructure and roadway, and (3) interaction between drivers and vehicle.

At the conclusion of this workshop, FHWA would like to identify a set of topics that could be developed as future ‘requests for proposals’ on research demonstrating the value of using data from various sources. This workshop will also explore methodologies that can be used to combine various data sources and types to enhance our understanding of human factors issues in transportation.
