Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.


Virginia Tech Transportation Institute Webinar on SHRP 2 Safety Data

August 1st, 2017 / in Announcements, research horizons, Research News, resources / by Helen Wright

On Wednesday, August 9, 2017 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM ET, the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) will host the first webinar in a series of two that explores ways to use the second Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP 2) safety data. The SHRP 2 safety data was a three-year data-collection effort that produced continuous driving data for over 3,000 drivers, including thousands of safety critical events and a large sample of baseline driving events.

The webinar “Video Reduction and Analysis Methods: Part I, Manual Reduction” will offer an overview of manual video reduction techniques. Attendees will learn which approach or combination of approaches might be best for their research project. The first webinar will be hosted by Suzie Lee, a Project Director in the Center for Data Reduction and Analysis Support at VTTI. She will provide an introduction to video reduction and analysis methods. Another presenter will be Julie McClafferty, the Data Reduction Group Leader at VTTI, who will present several types of manual video analysis and organize a discussion about protocol development and quality control.

The later webinar, to be held in September of 2017, will focus on the computer-vision and machine learning approach.
