AGENCY: Research and Innovative Technology Administration, U.S. 
Department of Transportation.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    The U.S. Department of Transportation ITS Joint Program Office (ITS 
JPO) and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration 
(NHTSA) will host a free public meeting to discuss the Human Factors 
for IntelliDrive (HFID) program on January 6, 2011 from 10 a.m. to 5:30 
p.m. at the Flamingo Las Vegas, 3555 Las Vegas Boulevard South Las 
Vegas, Nevada 89109.
    IntelliDrive is a research program under development that will 
allow vehicles to communicate wirelessly with other vehicles and the 
surrounding infrastructure, such as traffic signals and work zones. The 
program has the potential to significantly reduce vehicle crashes, 
enhance mobility and improve the environment. One of the supporting 
research programs is Human Factors for IntelliDrive (HFID), a program 
aimed at understanding the effects of providing drivers with critical 
safety warning messages. The vision of the HFID research is to address 
the number of new, competing visual and audible stimuli that put 
demands on a driver's attention. The goal of the program is to develop 
guidelines to ensure future IntelliDrive interfaces are effective 
without increasing distraction. The HFID program will support all of 
the IntelliDrive applications--safety, mobility, and sustainability--
for multiple vehicle types to include: passenger vehicles, passenger 
transit vehicles, and heavy trucks.
    At this meeting, ITS JPO and NHTSA will provide an overview of the 
entire Human Factors for IntelliDrive program, including Vehicle to 
Vehicle (V2V) communication and Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) 
communication, heavy truck-related research, and environmental research 
related IntelliDrive. The presenters will also cover each of the five 
HFID research tracks and then lead a discussion to facilitate the 
exchange of ideas with stakeholders. The feedback obtained during the 
meeting will be considered for the current program and future HFID 
projects.
    Registration will be available on-site. For additional questions, 
please contact Nicole Oliphant at noliphant@itsa.org or 202-721-4215.

    Issued in Washington, DC, on the 22nd day of December 2010.

Managing Director, ITS Joint Program Office.
