Field Data Collection

UMTRI researchers have many years of experience collecting various types of data in the field. Projects have ranged from unobtrusive identification of occupant restraint system use to driver interviews to vehicle and equipment inspections. Researchers have also developed new methodologies for efficient field data collection, including the use of personal digital assistants (PDAs), and the collection of field data at night, utilizing specialized night-vision equipment. UMTRI keeps complete sets of all necessary field data collection equipment including safety vests, traffic cones and signs, PDAs, stop watches, traffic counters, and night vision supplies.
