Teen Driving Behaviors
 

The Teen Driver Safety Research team at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute is working to reduce the frequency and severity of crashes involving teens behind the wheel. The following projects are currently underway: 

  • Maturation of Driving Skill from Teen to Young Adult to Experienced Adult Using SHRP2 Naturalistic Data

Young adult drivers should exhibit improved driving behavior compared to teen drivers due  to increased driving experience. However, previous naturalistic driving data suggests otherwise. This study will identify the specific predictors of crashes and near crashes among young drivers and determine if these predictors vary across age and skill level using SHRP2 Naturalistic Data. The specific aims are to:

-- categorize and quantify the factors contributing to young adult crashes and near crashes

 -- compare young adult drivers with previously analyzed novice teen and experienced adult  SHRP2 data

For more information on this study, please contact Thomas Seacrist, MBE at (267) 426-5432 or seacrist@email.chop.edu.

This project is funded by the Center for Child Injury Prevention Studies (CChIPS) at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute and the Ohio State University, a multi-site National Science Foundation Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC).

  • Emergency Autonomous to Manual Takeover in Driving Simulator: Teens vs. Adult Drivers

This study’s objective is to introduce teen and adult drivers to autonomous driving and to assess their ability to remain vigilant and to promptly take over in the case of a failure of the autopilot.  The study aims to:

-- analyze both novice and experienced drivers' pre- and post-impressions of the self-driving mode

-- quantify the ability of drivers, both novice and experienced, to remain vigilant when driving in a self-driving mode through the use of an eye tracker

-- assess the human aptitude to regain control in an emergency and to compare teen and adult reactions

  • Driving Analytics: Comparison of Teen and Adult Naturalistic Driving Behavior Patterns

This three-year study will lead to a better understanding of the adult and teen driver behaviors that lead to crashes, as well as the specific reactions of these drivers (such as swerving or braking) in emergency situations. For this project, researchers are analyzing the video and data of over 11,000 crashes, near crashes, and baseline events from the SHRP2 Naturalistic Driving dataset. Results will help manufacturers design Active Safety systems (Forward Collision Warnings, Lane Departure Warnings) that will ensure safety while minimizing false alarms.
