Can anyone help David with his request, see below? In particular I was
thinking that Cath Lawson, Shawn Turner or Carl Petty might know of
something specific. Besides, this might be a break from papers. So far
of the 51 papers we are playing with there are 53 of the 192 outstanding
reviews turned in.

Subject: Speed data for urban commercial vehicles.
I am an mechanical engineering student working on my senior project. I
looking for speed profile data for a commercial vehicle driving a
typical urban route. Specifically I am looking for something like a
text file with the speed of the vehicle sampled twice a second.
Is this data available from your organization?
If not, do you know where I might find such data?

Sorry for the delayed response, but I have been having trouble with my
Most of the work I have done has used GPS, so it is limited to 1-second
intervals. Also, most commercial fleet management software uses GPS, so
has a similar limitation. You will probably have a lot of difficulty
finding a public dataset with sub-second data, combined with GPS,
because it would most likely need to be tied to the OBD. You best bet
is to find someone at EPA ( I just left a voice mail for someone at EPA
in Ann Arbor). IF (big IF) they have something like that you and your
professor would need to sign a confidentiality agreement to have access.
Another potential source is the California Air Resources Board.
You could try Bob Leore at Transport Canada, who did a presentation in
Minneapolis at the NATMEC conference on combining OBD-II and GPS. I
didn't attend his presentation, did not get a copy of his ppt, so I
don't know if he has implemented any data collection, and if so, on what
vehicles. I don't have his email address, and it wasn't on the
conference list of attendees! I'm sure you can find it.
I will CC Ed Christopher who chairs the TRB urban data committee.
Maybe he knows of some other possibilities. Or, you could try posting
your query on the TMIP listserv.
