Safety continues to be one of the most important factors in motor vehicle design, manufacture and marketing. This seminar provides a comprehensive overview of these critical automotive safety considerations: injury and anatomy; human tolerance and biomechanics; occupant protection; testing; and federal legislation. The knowledge shared at this seminar will enable attendees to be more aware of safety considerations and to better understand and interact with safety experts. This course has been approved by the Accreditation Commission for Traffic Accident Reconstruction (ACTAR) for 18 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
These papers highlight the interaction of driver vision - which is itself characterized by complexity, flexibility, and high levels of performance—with ever more sophisticated vision technologies to support driver vision. In particular, LED technology continued to advance in the past year, leading to broader lighting applications. Topics covered include lighting design strategy, lighting thermal management, driver fields of view, and characteristics of camera/display systems.
Visual perception continues to be a critical aspect of overall driver performance. This session offers presentations highlighting new developments designed to provide better support for driver rearward vision, better understanding of how to measure light and its effects on drivers’ eyes, and better understanding of how drivers accomplish the visually difficult task of negotiating intersections.
The Biomechanics session presents new research on automotive occupant kinematics, human injury biomechanics, and human tolerance in an automotive environment. This includes new methodologies in the study of human injury, studies of human interaction with occupant protection systems, technological advances in physical and virtual anthropomorphic test devices, and other experimental, analytical and modeling studies on the biomechanics of human injury.
The focus of the session is on system safety analysis and design of safety-critical systems employing electronic controls. Topics include: implementation of safety-relevant systems, fail-safe strategies, distributed fault tolerant systems and hazard analysis. Application areas include: automotive active safety and alternative energy systems as well as avionics and mission management. Finally, the session addresses application of new or revised safety standards such as ISO 26262 and DO-178C.
Papers with an emphasis on, but not limited to, innovative ideas to enhance automotive safety with improved material constitutive modeling, analysis method developments, simulation and pre/post processing tools, optimization techniques, crash code developments, finite element model updating, model validation and verification techniques, dummies and occupants, restraint systems, passive safety as well as lightweight material applications and designs are highly encouraged.

Automotive projects continue to grow in complexity. Studies provide a glimpse into the attributes of product development projects that have a high likelihood of failure. Knowing these attributes, the approach to the project can be structured to reduce the risks. For example, the scope of the project may already place the project at risk. Understanding the risks associated with the scope enables you to either reconsider the scope or work out strategies that will eliminate or at least mitigate the risks. In addition, your approach or strategy selected to meet the project demands will have significant impact on the results.

In recent years, total annual United States patent grants have increased to over 300,000, while patent infringement lawsuit filings have exceeded 6,000 per year. Only a small fraction of granted patents ever end up in litigation. Of the many causes for the disparity is the growing awareness and sensitivity of companies to patent infringement risk management practices. This course addresses a number of those practices (and tools for implementing the practices), placing them into context, and providing a practical overview for how to implement them to help reduce the prospect of patent infringement litigation.

Connected vehicles are increasingly seen as a target for cybersecurity attacks. A key differentiator for the automotive industry is the use of cyber-physical systems, where a successful cybersecurity attack can affect physical entities. Often involving embedded electronics and real time control, these systems require different solutions in addition to established IT security principles and reactive responses to threats. Cybersecurity needs to be designed and built into cyber-physical systems throughout the development lifecycle to provide defense in depth.
Journal Article
Makoto Hasegawa, Takanobu Kaneko
Abstract ISO 26262, an international functional safety standard of electrical and/or electronic systems (E/E systems) for motor vehicles, was published in November 2011 and it is expected that the scope will be extended to motorcycles in a second edition of ISO 26262 going to be published in 2018. In order to apply ISO 26262 to motorcycle, proper estimation of Exposure, Controllability, and Severity are key factors to determine Motorcycle Safety Integrity Level (MSIL). Exposure is a factor to indicate the probability of the state of an operational situation that can be hazardous with the E/E system malfunction. And it is not easy to estimate the motorcycle Exposure due to less availability of back ground data in actual operational situation compared to motor vehicle. Therefore real traffic situation should be investigated in order to provide rationales for MSIL determination.
