DADSS Field Operation Trial Opportunities
The Driver Alcohol Detection System for Safety Program (DADSS) is developing innovative, vehicle-integrated alcohol detection systems to address the problem of alcohol-impaired driving. These technologies, both breath- and touch-based, are intended to be seamless with the driving task, non-intrusive, accurate, fast, and require little to no maintenance. Development of the breath-based technology has progressed significantly and now requires real-world road testing in an uncontrolled, naturalistic setting. DADSS is currently seeking opportunities to partner with state fleets and/or private fleet organizations for trial deployment of this vehicle technology. State partners may be eligible to use certain NHTSA grant funds to sponsor DADSS research projects. See here for guidance.
- Identify and address technical modifications for system improvement; including: refine user interface, optimize sensor performance and ruggedness, and improve measurement algorithms
- Increase public awareness and acceptance of the DADSS system
- Determine feasibility of implementation into larger fleets, privately owned, and commercial vehicles
