NHTSA Connectors

Version 6

 

Intro

NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) is an organization under the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT). Domo's NHTSA connectors provide access to NHTSA safety information, including locations of child safety seat inspection stations, Civil Penalty Payments collected, complaints submitted, and more. For information about the NHTSA API, visit their page (https://one.nhtsa.gov/webapi/Default...Recalls/API/83).

There are 4 NHTSA connectors in Domo, all of which are discussed in this article. The first of these is a standard Domo API connector, while the other three are used to pull public datasets (which are discussed in more detail here). These connectors are as follows:

  • NHTSA. Provides access to numerous categories of NHTSA data, such as child safety seat inspection information, civil penalty payments, recalls, and so on. This connector lets you choose from a number of reports and configure filters, whereas the others in this list are automatically set to pull a specific report without filters. 

  • NHTSA Complaints. Pulls all NHTSA complaint data, with summary, incident date, vehicle make and model, number of injuries, and more. 

  • NHTSA Recalls. Pulls all NHTSA recall data, withlist of recalls with summary, manufacturer, make and model, and more.

  • NHTSA Safety Ratings. Pulls all NHTSA safety rating data, with a list of safety ratings, such as overall rating, crash ratings, rollover ratings, and more.

You connect to NHTSA reports in the Data Center. This topic discusses the fields and menus that are specific to the NHTSA connector user interface. General information for adding DataSets, setting update schedules, and editing DataSet information is discussed in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Prerequisites

None. Because this data is public, there is no need to enter connection information.

Connecting to Your NHTSA Account

This section enumerates the options in the Details panes in the NHTSA Connector page. (Note these options appear for the NHTSA connector only, not the NHTSA Complaints, Recalls, or Safety Ratings connectors.) The components of the other panes in this page, Scheduling and Name & Describe Your DataSet, are universal across most connector types and are discussed in greater length in Adding a DataSet Using a Data Connector.

Details Pane

This pane contains a primary Reports menu, along with various other menus which may or may not appear depending on the report type you select.
