SAE International Symposium Will Explore the Latest Active Safety Vehicle Technologies

WARRENDALE, Pa., Sept. 22, 2015 -

Many of the latest safety technologies will be discussed at the SAE 2015 Active Safety Systems Symposium, slated for Nov. 4-5 at the Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, Mich.


Today's automotive engineers are tasked with the challenge of how to keep drivers and passengers as safe as possible. The need to increase safety within the vehicle (occupants) and outside the vehicle (pedestrians, bicyclists) has resulted in this rapidly growing field within the industry. 


The SAE 2015 Active Safety Systems Symposium will feature OEM applications of near-term and mid-term active safety systems, along with experts who will speak about the challenges in implementing this technology, consumer acceptance, and the government’s role in developing a strategy for moving towards fully autonomous vehicles. In addition, attendees will hear directly from NHTSA, OEMs and industry leading companies during Expert Panels that allow attendees to be a part of the discussion.


Keynote speaker for the event will be Jake Fisher, Director of Auto Testing with Consumer Reports. Fisher will address consumer perceptions of advanced safety systems as well as distraction and the “factors” that prompt some drivers to not use these systems.
