Partnering to Advance Traffic Safety

By Amy Aukema

Rapidly evolving technologies in motor vehicles have the potential to reduce the rates of collision and their devastating consequences. The Partnership for Analytics Research in Traffic Safety (PARTS) is using data and analysis to maximize these benefits.

The Partnership for Analytics Research in Traffic Safety, or PARTS, is a consortium enabling government and automotive industry stakeholders to share their data with MITRE for collaborative analysis—to gain greater safety insights than any organization could achieve on its own.

Convened by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and MITRE in 2018, PARTS is based on a public-private partnership (PPP) model that has dramatically improved aviation safety. The creation of PARTS was spurred by the need to better understand the benefits and emerging safety opportunities of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and to prepare the way for automated driving systems of the future.
