NHTSA FARS data analysis for AD development and testing

FARS (Fatality Analysis Reporting System) is a nationwide census providing NHTSA and the American public with yearly data regarding fatal injuries suffered in traffic crashes. This presentation is focused on FARS data (2000-2019) with GPS information. Certain geographic patterns are first discovered with statistical data analysis. As the AD industry launches more ground truth data collection and real-world closed-loop testing, this research will provide pragmatic guidelines to improve the test coverage of ODD. The presentation will also offer a few proposals to benefit AD industries with assistance from NHTSA and FARS data collectors.
