  1. Reducing Teen Driving Deaths • Bryan Mohan • Daniel Lach • Sean Killeen Picture courtesy of http://www.nasioc.com • Steve Evasic • Mike Morgenstern

  2. The Problem • 15-20 year olds account for over 6% of licensed drivers in the United States • These same drivers account for close to 14%of all fatal motor vehicle accidents • In 2004, nearly 300,000 teens were injured and about 3,600 lost their lives • TOO MANY TEENS ARE DYING IN CAR ACCIDENTS!

  3. Things Currently Being Done • Mandatory Supervised Driving Practice • Graduated Licensing Programs (Cinderella License) • Raised minimum driving ages NOT ENOUGH IS BEING DONE

  5. What we did 1. Collected data on teen accidents 2. Analyzed data from an engineering perspective 3. Concluded speeding was the leading cause 4. Proposed a GPS-based, speed limit sensitive alert system for the driver

  6. Sources of Data • Center for Disease Control and Prevention • Insurance Institute of Highway Safety • National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration • Fatality Analysis Reporting System

  7. Analysis of Data

  8. Conclusion of Research • Speeding is the leading cause of accidents Picture courtesy of http://www.boostcruising.com How can we slow drivers down?

  9. Possible Solutions • Speed limiters used to set maximum speed based on driver ability or user setting. • Increased driving age and / or training • Speed cameras • Increased police presence • Higher speeding ticket fines

  10. Our Proposal • A program that utilizes GPS to create an audible warning tone when the speed limit is broken by a predetermined amount • Integrated into newer vehicles’ satellite navigation systems or • A standalone system for older vehicles

  11. Manufactures GPS receivers for automotive applications • Portfolio of over 700 patents is the broadest positioning solutions portfolio in the industry • On the leading edge of GPS technology Image courtesy of http://www.trimble.com

  12. Provides data for most of navigation systems • Used by many internet navigation sites • Digital maps of 52 countries • Contains up to 160 attributes for each road • Competitors: Intergraph, MapInfo, & Tele Atlas

  13. How Will It Work?

  14. Parts List • Antenna • GPS Receiver • CPU • Speaker Cost • Integrated - $100 • Standalone - $850+

  15. Possible Features • Data logger • Data port for software updates • Ability to set variation of threshold speed • Volume control • Variable frequency of audible alert • Password protected options

  16. Summary • Teenage driver accidents are a huge problem • The majority of these accidents are speed related. • Our proposal would slow the driver down • Integrated or standalone GPS • Audible warning tone • Customizable options
