Mitre, NHTSA, Auto Industry Expand Traffic Safety Data Sharing Collaboration

Mitre and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will collaborate with automobile manufacturing companies to analyze the performance of advanced driver assistance systems as part of an expanded data-sharing initiative.

The Partnership for Analytics Research in Traffic Safety now includes eight automakers that collectively held 70 percent of U.S. commercial vehicle and passenger car market share during 2019, Mitre said Wednesday.

Mazda and Subaru recently joined General Motors, Honda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Toyota, FCA as consortium participants.

Mitre noted the initial six industry participants voluntarily provided safety data during the partnership’s pilot program.

PARTS aims to expand its dataset by studying 40M vehicles that represent 90 models launched on the market between 2015 and 2021 to gain insights into the effectiveness of ADAS technology such as automatic emergency braking and lane management systems.

Gregg Leone, a Mitre vice president and director of its Center for Advanced Aviation System Development, said the partnership builds on the nonprofit company’s work with the federal government and industry in the Aviation Safety Information Analysis and Sharing program.

He added the collaboration model for ASIAS could also support traffic safety efforts.
