Forward-Looking Collision Warning System Performance Guidelines 970456
This document presents preliminary guidelines for a forward looking collision warning system. The intent of a forward looking collision warning system is to eliminate or mitigate vehicular rear-end collisions through driver notification or warning. All aspects of performance are addressed including general system requirements, driver / vehicle interface methodology, collision dynamics, standardized testing and estimation of associated benefits.
This guideline is intended to be used by manufacturers and developers of vehicular based forward looking collision warning systems as a tool to 1) standardize system requirements; 2) standardize driver interface and control among systems developed by different manufacturers; 3) standardize testing to be used in verifying proper operation of the forward-looking collision warning systems and; 4) measure the system benefits prior to widespread deployment of such systems.
