VIEW 2.0: Direct Vision Assessment System

Even at low speeds, large vehicles contribute to an alarming pedestrian and cyclist safety crisis, and studies show that annual fatalities are increasing. Our SCOPE team is collaborating with the Volpe National Transportation Systems Center, the Santos Foundation, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) to reinvent VIEW, a blind-zone measurement tool for vehicles and a crowd-sourced database of blind-zones created by the 2017-2018 SCOPE team. We are assessing and implementing new technology and methods with better accuracy, efficiency, and ease of use to create VIEW 2.0. VIEW 2.0 will be used to help design, select, or deploy safer vehicles, and demonstrate the importance of direct vision for traffic safety involving vulnerable road users.
