BACKGROUND:

 

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) mission is to save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce traffic-related health care and other economic costs.  The agency develops, promotes, and implements effective educational, engineering, and enforcement programs with the goal of ending vehicle crash tragedies and reducing economic costs associated with vehicle use and highway travel.  The mission of the National 911 Program, which is housed within NHTSA’s Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS), is to provide Federal leadership and coordination in supporting and promoting optimal 911 services.

 

The mission of the National 911 Program, which is housed within NHTSA’s Office of EMS, is to provide Federal leadership and coordination in supporting and promoting optimal 911 services  Emergency medical services relies on a properly functioning communication system that enables providers to efficiently and expeditiously provide medical services to crash victims. 

 

An automatic crash notification (ACN) system is an emerging safety technology designed to notify emergency responders that a MVC has occurred and provide  location data with crash notification.  In most cases, when the ACN sensor detects either that an air bag has deployed or there’s been a dramatic and sudden car deceleration, the system automatically transmits location data with crash notification.  so emergency responders can easily locate and reach the scene of the crash. Current systems are either embedded in vehicle or Blue-tooth-enabled using user’s linked cell phone while driving. ACN systems have the potential to  reduce death and disability 1) more efficiently dispatching appropriate EMS resources (e.g., basic vs. advanced life support, helicopter) to the MVC scene and 2) more effectively allowing for transport decisions to be made to route victims to appropriate medical care. More lives can be saved and the severity of injuries reduced if a crash victim receives appropriate medical care as soon as possible. ACN is especially beneficial to MVC victims in rural areas, where there are typically fewer or no witnesses or bystanders to call emergency responders.

 

Advanced Automatic Collision Notification (AACN) is the successor to Automatic Collision Notification (ACN). By using a collection of sensors, vehicle telemetry systems with AACN capabilities transmit crash data/analyzed crash data if a vehicle is involved in a moderate or severe crash. Depending on the type of system, the data include information about crash severity, the direction of impact, air bag deployment, multiple impacts, and rollovers. This information can be relayed to 911 telecommunicator and  dispatchers, helping them to quickly determine the appropriate combination of emergency personnel, equipment, needed at the MVC and enables responders to decide where to take victims for the appropriate level of medical and trauma care.

 

OBJECTIVE:

 

The Contractor shall develop and execute a plan for a pilot project/proof of concept that measures the potential benefits of AACN/ACN in the field, using current technologies.
