1 Office of Research and Information Technology International Border Crossing Program Electronic Screening Transportation Border Working Group November 1, 2011

2 1 Office of Research and Information Technology FMCSA Priorities and Goals  Priorities  Raise the bar  Maintain high safety standards  Remove high-risk carriers  Strategic Plan  Advance Electronic Safety and Credential Monitoring to Facilitate International Traffic Flow at our Nation's Borders

3 2 Office of Research and Information Technology  FMCSA  Driver Credentials  Equipment fitness  Federal operating authority status  Proof of insurance/appropriate coverage  Border State  Vehicle registration status  Size and weight limitations  Other State-specific requirements Safety and Compliance Requirements

4 3 Office of Research and Information Technology  Current screening is manual  Limits coverage  Time consuming  Based on:  Inspectors’ knowledge of specific carriers  Visual check of obvious physical defects  Limited conversation with driver  Random selection Determining Which Vehicles to Inspect

5 4 Office of Research and Information Technology  Phase I – Demonstration of Concept – Completed 2007  Phase II – Analysis of Demonstration – Completed 2009  Phase III – Field Operational Test – Started June 2011  Awarded contract to Battelle Memorial Institute. Team includes: Texas Transportation Institute, Kentucky Transportation Center, University of Washington  DOT’s Volpe Center supporting project management and acquisition and installation of required equipment at border sites International Border Screening Program

6 5 Office of Research and Information Technology  International Border Crossing (IBC) e-Screening concept  Use of radio frequency identification device (RFID) transponders to identify drivers and vehicles  RFID technology selected because 90% of trucks entering the U.S. are equipped Enhancing the Screening Process

7 6 Office of Research and Information Technology  Demonstrated at Santa Teresa, NM port of entry - Low volume ( trips per day) - Staffed 80% of time - Ideal environment for testing and evaluation  14 carriers participated  Vehicles screened to validate: - Currency of CVSA decal and truck registration - Federal operating authority status of carrier - Current insurance - Driver tags/commercial drivers license status  Over 5,500 transponder reads in demo Phase I – IBC E-Screening Demonstration

8 7 Office of Research and Information Technology  Technology performed reliably (99% accurate)  Reduced processing time for selection for inspection (1 sec vs. 15 min.)  Increased number of vehicles subject to inspection (237/month baseline vs. 965/month during demo)  Focused limited enforcement resources  Reduces processing for compliant vehicles Major Findings

9 8 Office of Research and Information Technology  Currency of CVSA decal  On-site enrollment is time consuming and limiting  No way to identify trailer electronically verify compliance  All drivers did not have ID cards  Screening decision displayed only inside facility Limitations of Concept

10 9 Office of Research and Information Technology  Utilizing International Trade Data System (ITDS) shared by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) with FMCSA  Identify carrier, truck, trailer, and driver  Eliminate need for on site enrollment  Tied to other data sources  Screen on more than 20 factors of interest  Requirements analysis in seven border States  Analysis of 20 ports of entry  Developed system requirements Phase II – Analyses of Demonstration

11 10 Office of Research and Information Technology  Deployment and testing of IBC e-Screening system at 4 border locations  Development of partnerships with States and Customs and Border Protection  Conduct outreach with stakeholders to deploy system nationally  Ensure user needs are met Phase III – Field Operational Test

12 11 Office of Research and Information Technology Chris Flanigan Office of Analysis, Research, and Technology (202) Questions?
