New 2021 test protocols due to be introduced by C-NCAP will take into account scooter occupant safety on China’s bustling roads According to statistics, in China, scooter accidents account for the highest proportion of the total number of two-wheeled vehicle accidents. But there is currently no corresponding scooter model available for ADAS testing.
Advances in active vehicle safety testing systems are enabling continued development of radar-based ADAS technology Since car manufacturers started to introduce collision avoidance systems to commercially available vehicles in the early 2000s, sensor systems have grown increasingly sophisticated. With autonomous driving in mind, the systems will need to be able to handle an almost infinite […]
For evaluating collision avoidance technologies, new test targets enable complex traffic scenarios to be replicated in the real world In the early 2000s car manufacturers started to implement collision avoidance systems in commercially available vehicles. In the early stages, only frontal crash obstacles, such as stationary cars, were addressed in the avoidance or mitigation of […]
Developers looking to test according to the Euro NCAP and ISO AEB VRU specs can now purchase a free-driving platform – the only system of its kind worldwide The number of fatalities and injuries of vehicle occupants due to road accidents has continued to decrease thanks to improvements in vehicle passive safety features. However, nearly […]
The MUSE consortium is working to improve motorcyclist safety by studying the main collision scenarios and possible countermeasures, and developing tools to improve and evaluate these systems Nowadays, Euro NCAP protocols asses Advance Driver Assistance Systems that are able to detect other road users as cars, pedestrians or bicyclists; but they don’t consider Powered Two […]
