Breakthroughs in Vision and Visibility for Highway Safety Workshop Summary Report - August 13-14, 2014


On August 13-14, 2014, at the Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center in McLean, VA, the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA's) Office of Safety Research and Development (R&D) and Office of Safety, with support from the Exploratory Advanced Research (EAR) Program, convened a 2-day workshop, "Breakthroughs in Vision and Visibility for Highway Safety." The purpose of this workshop was to identify gaps in highway visibility research and brainstorm about innovative tools and techniques to fill those gaps. FHWA's Office of Safety R&D invited speakers from universities and research companies across the globe to present their research and to provide insights into next steps in highway visibility. The speakers also participated in a panel discussion with the other workshop participants to discuss their research and to answer questions. The group then identified and discussed specific research areas that would bring FHWA's research into the next 5 years, 10 years, 20 years, and beyond. This workshop summary report captures highlights from the workshop and summarizes the discussions that took place.
