After the crash, you need to know if an autonomous or driver assistance system was installed in the vehicle, if it functioned properly, and if it affected the outcome of the accident. Get a detailed look at the rapidly growing field of self-driving vehicles and driver assistance systems. What is available, how does it work, and what will happen in a crash scenario? How does it affect product liability and accident reconstruction? Some auto manufacturers are equipping the majority of their new vehicles with such technology, and it’s important for the forensic engineer to “stay ahead of the curve”. We’ll look at how to determine if the systems were installed, if they were enabled, and if they functioned as designed. The presentation will be interspersed with many videos and photos, allowing attendees to experience for themselves the implications of this exciting new field. Examples of the systems at work will be demonstrated.
Please bring your laptop and calculator with you to this course.
