Title: Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety—Field Operational Test. Form Numbers: None. Type of Review: New Information Collection. Abstract: NHTSA and the Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety (ACTS) began research efforts in February 2008 to try to find potential in-vehicle approaches to address the problem of alcohol-impaired driving. Members of ACTS comprise motor vehicle manufacturers representing approximately 99 percent of light vehicle sales in the U.S. This cooperative research partnership, known as the Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety (DADSS) Program, is exploring the feasibility, potential benefits of, and public policy challenges associated with a more widespread use of non-invasive, in-vehicle technology to prevent alcohol-impaired driving. In a 2008 cooperative agreement, NHTSA and ACTS outlined a research program to assess the state of detection technologies that are capable of measuring blood alcohol concentration (BAC) or Breath Alcohol Concentration (BrAC) and to support the creation and testing of prototypes and subsequent hardware that could be installed in vehicles. As part of the research program, NHTSA and ACTS will build research vehicles that include both a breath- and touch-based sensor in order to evaluate the potential implementation and integration of both breath- and touch-based sensor technologies. This collection, which will begin on September 1, 2017, pertains to a field operational test (FOT) of both the breath- and touch-based research vehicles developed under this program. A key to the establishment of effective, unobtrusive in-vehicle alcohol detection systems is an understanding of realworld use of the technology. This FOT will allow NHTSA and ACTS to evaluate the functionality of these research vehicles under varying operating conditions by having study VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:04 Nov 22, 2016 Jkt 241001 participants drive DADSS research vehicles through preset routes.

    Title: Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety--Field 
Operational Test.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Type of Review: New Information Collection.
    Abstract: NHTSA and the Automotive Coalition for Traffic Safety 
(ACTS) began research efforts in February 2008 to try to find potential 
in-vehicle approaches to address the problem of alcohol-impaired 
driving. Members of ACTS comprise motor vehicle manufacturers 
representing approximately 99 percent of light vehicle sales in the 
U.S. This cooperative research partnership, known as the Driver Alcohol 
Detection System for Safety (DADSS) Program, is exploring the 
feasibility, potential benefits of, and public policy challenges 
associated with a more widespread use of non-invasive, in-vehicle 
technology to prevent alcohol-impaired driving. In a 2008 cooperative 
agreement, NHTSA and ACTS outlined a research program to assess the 
state of detection technologies that are capable of measuring blood 
alcohol concentration (BAC) or Breath Alcohol Concentration (BrAC) and 
to support the creation and testing of prototypes and subsequent 
hardware that could be installed in vehicles. As part of the research 
program, NHTSA and ACTS will build research vehicles that include both 
a breath- and touch-based sensor in order to evaluate the potential 
implementation and integration of both breath- and touch-based sensor 
technologies.
    This collection, which will begin on September 1, 2017, pertains to 
a field operational test (FOT) of both the breath- and touch-based 
research vehicles developed under this program. A key to the 
establishment of effective, unobtrusive in-vehicle alcohol detection 
systems is an understanding of real-world use of the technology. This 
FOT will allow NHTSA and ACTS to evaluate the functionality of these 
research vehicles under varying operating conditions by having study 
participants drive DADSS research vehicles through preset routes. The 
research vehicles are the first vehicles of this kind, and will be used 
to gather data regarding sensor validity and reliability. This study 
will provide a greater understanding of drivers using the technology 
under varying environmental conditions. Data collected from the DADSS 
FOT will be used to further refine the DADSS Performance Specifications 
and evaluate system performance.
    Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the 
Information: The collection of information consists of: (1) An 
eligibility interview (2) a multi-day FOT of DADSS sensors, and (3) a 
post-test day questionnaire.
    The information to be collected will be used for the following 
purposes:
     Eligibility interview will be used to obtain self-reported 
eligibility information, including health, driving/criminal record, and 
drinking behavior, that participants must meet to qualify for 
participation in this study (e.g., must hold valid driver's license). 
Participants will also be asked to provide their height and weight.
     The DADSS FOT will be used to establish effective non-
invasive, in-vehicle alcohol detection systems through an understanding 
of the real-world use of the technology. Breath-and touch-based sensor 
data along with video data (for in-vehicle validation of sensor data) 
collected from the DADSS FOT will be used to further refine the DADSS 
Performance Specifications and evaluate subsystem/sensor performance. 
This study will provide a greater understanding of drivers using the 
technology under varying environmental conditions.
     Post-test day questionnaire(s) will be used to get 
information about any technical difficulties or issues drivers may have 
had with the DADSS-FOT vehicles at the end of each test day.

* Interviewees will not be compensated for the eligibility/demographic interview, but we calculate the estimated burden hour cost to the public using
  the prevailing Federal minimum wage rate of $7.25/hour.
** Participants in the FOT will be compensated $19.50 per hour for their time in the orientation and the FOT study and this rate was used to calculate
  their burden hours.
