Web Figure 1.1: An inattentive older driver of the University of Iowa instrumented vehicle (NIRVANA) approaches a lead vehicle (panels A and B) and brakes hard (panel C upper plot) to avoid a rear-end collision. There is a corresponding abrupt dip in speed from over 30 mph (25 knots) to 0 mph, as shown by the electronic data from the instrumented vehicle (panel C, lower plot). The severity of the braking simultaneously triggered a DriveCam system to record video of the event.
