Two months of new connected vehicle data from the Safety Pilot Model Deployment Program have been released. The data sets contain sanitized mobility data elements collected from about 3,000 vehicles equipped with connected vehicle technologies while traversing Ann Arbor, Michigan. The data sets include kinematic and geospatial information, trip summaries and vehicle attributes, among others.
Two months of new connected vehicle data from the Safety Pilot Model Deployment (SPMD) Program are available at the Research Data Exchange (RDE). RDE is a web-based data resource provided by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Program. It collects, manages, and provides access to archived and real-time multi-source and multi-modal data to support the development and testing of ITS applications.
The new sets of naturalistic driving data are a valuable resource for researchers and application developers to support the development of the next generation of transportation solutions. The data sets contain sanitized mobility data elements collected from about 3,000 vehicles equipped with connected vehicle technologies while traversing Ann Arbor, Michigan. The hyper-frequent, hyper-local data can facilitate analyses that provide insights into safety, network mobility, and performance. The six SPMD data sets located on the RDE include:
- The Data Acquisition System 1 (DAS1) data set contains four text-based data files from UMTRI equipped vehicles, providing vehicle kinematic and geospatial information and trip summaries.
- The DAS2 data set contains three text-based vehicle operation data files from CAMP vehicles, providing similar data to the DAS1 data set.
- The Basic Safety Message (BSM) data set includes 15 CSV files, each containing vehicle attributes (e.g., location, speed, and heading), in addition to a file with other attributes (e.g., brake application, wiper status).
- The RSE data set contains 13 CSV files of messages transmitted or received by RSEs, including BSMs, and SPaT and MAP messages.
- The Weather data set consists of corresponding weather information from the Nation Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Climatic Data Center.
- The Network data set consists of two CSV files that contain traffic count data from Ann Arbor.
