The Volpe National Transportation Systems Center improves transportation by anticipating and addressing emerging issues and advancing technical, operational, and institutional innovations across all modes. The Santos Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving transportation safety. With the guidance of Volpe and the support of the Santos Foundation, the Volpe SCOPE team aims to help save lives by reducing collisions between heavy vehicles and vulnerable road users. Through blind spot characterization and analysis informing a truck safety ranking system, we will influence future truck design and fleet policies by increasing access to design tools.
