Download as PDF 62798 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 193 / Monday, October 5, 2020 / Notices Title: Design and Evaluation of a Robust Manual Locomotive Operating Mode. OMB Control Number: 2130–0623. Abstract: The purpose of this study is to design and evaluate a prototype locomotive operating mode that allows an engineer to ‘‘manually’’ control a train by providing a desired speed target while the control system determines the throttle notch changes required. This research addresses DOT’s safety strategic goal. Information collected from this research will be used by researchers and equipment designers to evaluate the merit of a prototype display and control configuration maximizing the use of both automation and human capabilities. The information will also assist the Federal government in recommending display design standards to the rail industry for future displays and the results may help design future displays and controls for locomotives. This ICR, which was previously Number of respondents approved by OMB, will be extended as the study was not completed by the anticipated completion date. Type of Request: Extension without change of a current information collection. Affected Public: Railroad Engineers, College Student Volunteers. Respondent Universe: 20 Engineers/ 10 Volunteers.

The minimum wage, as of September 2020, for Massachusetts is $12.00 per hour. Therefore, the cost would be $32.26 x 181.34 hours = $5,850.03 and $12.00 x 90.67 hours = 1,088.04 for a total of $6,938.07. This is an estimated cost. The actual cost will vary based upon current locomotive engineer wages. Total Estimated Annual Responses: 90. Total Estimated Annual Burden: 272.
