A Method for Estimating the Benefit of Autonomous Braking Systems Using Traffic Accident Data
The results from the case study highlight frontal impact situations from real world accident data that have the greatest potential in terms of improving accident outcome. One of the first stages in the development of forward dectection driver support systems is a system to detect vehicles travelling in the same direction. ...It involves a systematic and new way of examining accident data in order to extract information concerning pre-crash situations. One problem area when implementing collision mitigation systems is being able to achieve sufficient target discrimination. ...Here, braking tends to be efficient in terms of accident mitigation; hence reducing AIS1 spinal injuries in this specific traffic incidence. The need for an increased level of object discrimination becomes obvious though, when taking all frontal impacts into account.
