Estimate the Residual Safety Problem after Integrated Safety Systems (ISS) is deployed in the future. ISS consists of all active (auto braking for vehicle, pedestrian, bicyclist, lane keeping, etc.) and passive safety systems (advanced airbag, curtain shield airbag, roof strength, pedestrian protection active hood, etc.).
We found that there will still be residual crashes even with 100 percent penetration of active and passive safety systems. Following are the estimated residual accident rates:
For these estimated residual crashes, we are conducting a detailed analysis of each crash type, which can be utilized to develop appropriate vehicle based countermeasures.
This is a project in collaboration with Virginia Tech
