Description

A railroad crossing driving simulator system for human factors research is sought. The system requires a high fidelity driver interface, and a wide field of view with the ability to create highway-railroad grade crossing scenarios, as well as development and control, data collection, and analysis. The Volpe Center can use this technology to support Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) in their mission to reduce incidents at highway-railroad grade crossings. A railroad crossing driving simulator will be used to examine how grade crossing safety systems can be made more effective by addressing driver behavior. For example, how can visual and auditory warnings, such as freight car reflectors and wayside horns, be designed and operated to maximize their ability to attract motorists’ attention and foster safe drivers’ response.
