Introduction to Highly Automated Vehicles

Every year, the U.S. experiences more than 32,000 traffic deaths and over 3.8 million crash injuries. While the trend in traffic deaths has been downward for the past decade, most of this reduction has been the result of optimizing passive occupant crash protection systems such as seatbelts and airbags. This course is designed to familiarize participants with the technologies enabling advanced driver assistance systems and how they integrate with existing passive occupant crash protection systems.
