Crash/Injury Data Collection, Management, and Analysis

UMTRI collects large datasets from vehicle- and site-based instrumentation, in-depth telephone accident surveys, and state and federal crash databases. Collecting reliable, accurate and well-calibrated data is an essential first step in using that data for statistical analysis, model validation, and system evaluation. Our data systems have been evolving since the early 1970s to meet the highest possible standards of accuracy, integrity, and usability. Data is managed via networked servers, using SQL server technology and an in-house automated data access and analysis system (ADAAS). UMTRI researchers use the ever-growing pool of vehicle, driving, and crash data to answer a wide range of research questions.
