SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Driver Monitoring of Inattention and Impairment Using Vehicle Equipment (Phase 2) OMB Control Number: None Type of Request: New Information Collection Abstract: In 2011, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported 29,757 fatal vehicle crashes in the United States. A large proportion of these crashes were caused by one of three factors: 31% alcohol intoxication, 2.4% drowsy, and 7.1% distracted cases. In an effort to understand potential mitigation strategies, NHTSA has contracted with the University of Iowa’s National Advanced Driving Simulator (NADS) to develop and evaluate vehicle-based algorithms to detect impairment and inattention. NHTSA proposes an experimental driving simulator study to develop algorithms for detecting impaired driving. This study will measure the ability of subjects to maintain lane position and vehicle speed relative to the posted speed limit while either drowsy or distracted by a secondary task while driving a driving simulator. NHTSA is requesting clearance to collect voluntary information from subjects to determine their eligibility to participate and remain in the driving simulator study. Affected Public: Voluntary study participants. Number of Respondents: Under this proposed effort, the University of Iowa, National Advanced Driving Simulator will contact approximately 168 individuals by phone and use a screening questionnaire to determine their eligibility for the study. It is estimated that 96 of these individuals will qualify to be enrolled into the study. The 96 individuals who will be contacted are persons in Eastern Iowa who have volunteered to take part in driving simulation studies in the past. Businesses are ineligible for the sample and will not be contacted. Number of Responses: Each respondent will complete the process once. Total Annual Burden Hours: It is estimated that the total respondent burden will be 247 hours. Respondents who complete the phone screening will have a burden of 10 minutes each for a total of 28 hours. Respondents who go on to be enrolled in the study will have an additional burden of 61 minutes for a total of 219 hours. There are no additional costs to respondents PO 00000 Frm 00110 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53005 Frequency of Collection: This is a onetime collection.
