Nissan's Active Safety Strategy - Paving the Way to Autonomous Drive
Active safety systems hold great promise to help the vehicle safety community reduce crashes and crash severity. As these systems continue to be developed and offered on a wider range of vehicle models, we must consider not only what role they can play in contributing overall traffic safety, but also how the development and adoption of such technologies aids the auto industry in the development of autonomous vehicles.

Pedestrian Pre-Collision System Performance Evaluation
This presentation describes the development of test conditions and related equipment including an adult and child surrogate pedestrian target for test track evaluation of pedestrian Pre-Collision Systems (PCS). The test scenarios were developed using pedestrian crash data from NHTSA’s General Estimate System (GES), Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), state data (Michigan) and analysis of 110-Car naturalistic driving data collected using video data recorders as part of this project. The 77GHz radar reflection characteristics of the pedestrian test targets were determined using radar scanning of 10 real people of different shapes and sizes including male, female and children. The shape and articulated motion of the surrogate pedestrian targets were determined from analysis of gait, knee angle and related measurements of real people. Finally the performance of two different Pedestrian PCS equipped vehicles were evaluated using the two surrogate pedestrian targets at test track testing.

Testing of Advanced Technologies for NHTSA NCAP
This presentation discusses the methodologies of testing passenger vehicles to the NHTSA NCAP Advanced Technologies test program, which includes Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Crash Imminent Braking (CIB), Dynamic Brake Support (DBS) Systems, and Lane Keeping Support (LKS) tests. The presentation explains the test procedures developed by NHTSA as well as the pass / fail criteria, test equipment, and facilities required to conduct each test. Samples of actual test data are discussed, including an overview of data plots, photographs, and video footage.
