This report defines the problem of lane change crashes in the United States (U.S.) based on data from the 1999 National Automotive Sampling System/General Estimates System (GES) crash database of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The results from this analysis provide a basis for related future research in the U.S. Department of Transportation's Intelligent Vehicle Initiative. Lane change crashes are defined in this report as two-vehicle crashes that occur when one vehicle… 

An evaluation of the real-world safety effect of a lane change driver support system and characteristics of lane change crashes based on insurance claims data

TLDR
The insurance data analyzed provided useful information about real-world lane change crash characteristics by covering collisions in all crash severities and thus revealed information beyond what is available in, for example, data sets of police-reported crashes.

Safety Evaluation of Lane Change Collision Avoidance Systems Using the National Advanced Driving Simulator

This paper reports on the status of the evaluation of several lane change collision avoidance system (CAS) types using the National Advanced Driving Simulator (NADS). The goal of this evaluation is

Performance of Drivers in Two Age Ranges Using Lane Change Collision Avoidance Systems inthe National Advanced Driving Simulator

Lane change collision avoidance systems (CAS) are designed to prevent crashes in lane change maneuvers by alerting the driver to hazards in the adjacent lanes of traffic. These systems detect

Minimizing the Disruption of Traffic Flow of Automated Vehicles During Lane Changes

TLDR
An algorithm to minimize the disruption of traffic flow by optimizing for the number of safe lane changes, thereby increasing throughput and reducing congestion is presented.

Gap Acceptance During Lane Changes by Large-Truck Drivers—An Image-Based Analysis

TLDR
An analysis of rearward gap acceptance characteristics of drivers of large trucks in highway lane change scenarios showed directional discrepancies, i.e., in left lane changes, large trucks are often slower than other vehicles in the target lane, whereas they are usually faster in right lane changes.

Human Factors Study of Driver Assistance Systems to Reduce Lane Departures and Side Collision Accidents

This study investigated the human factors issues related to the implementation of lane departure warning systems (LDWS) to reduce side collision and run-off-road crashes for heavy trucks. Lane
