Five Stars back to Back: SKODA prioritises Safety

article imageEnsuring the maximum possible safety of its vehicles is a top priority for SKODA AUTO and is also a long-standing tradition: A SKODA 100 L was the first documented vehicle to undergo crash testing 50 years ago in Prague-Ruzyne in what was then Czechoslovakia. Today, SKODA operates a state-of-the-art crash test facility at its Uhelnice-based Polygon Test Centre, which was comprehensively expanded in 2020 and even won the Crash Laboratory of the Year 2020 from the Automotive Testing Technology International trade journal.

NHTSA Female Crash Safety Research Plan

article imageNHTSA publishes the NHTSA Female Crash Safety Research Plan (November 2022). NHTSA seeks to better understand the possible sex inequalities in crash safety outcomes, particularly those not addressed in vehicles with modern crashworthiness countermeasures. Further, NHTSA is interested in evaluating the potential benefits of improved female ATDs, as well as FE human body models (HBM), to provide the tools necessary to develop effective safety countermeasures.

Small Cars with big Side Protection

article imageSeven of 11 small cars tested earn good or acceptable ratings in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety s new, tougher side-impact test, but four models are rated poor. The Mazda 3 sedan and Mazda 3 hatchback earn good ratings. Five other vehicles - the Nissan Sentra, Toyota Corolla sedan, Toyota Corolla hatchback, Honda Civic sedan and Honda Civic hatchback - are rated acceptable.

Benchmarking AV Safety

article imageAutonomous driving technology has the potential to dramatically improve road safety and save millions of lives now lost to traffic crashes. Yet, there are still no universally accepted approaches for evaluating the safety of autonomous driving systems. “How safe is safe enough?” and “How do autonomously driven vehicles perform compared to a human driver?” are questions frequently asked across the industry. Following the publication of the Waymo safety frameworkreal-world performance data, and the simulated reconstruction of fatal crashes, Waymo is taking another important step in answering these complex questions.

Hitachi Astemo develops Prototype 360-Degree Stereo Vision with Multi-camera 3D Sensing

article imageHitachi Astemo, Ltd. has developed a prototype 360-degree stereo vision system for automated vehicles traveling on regular streets. Based on multi-camera 3D sensing, the all-surrounding sensing system is both high-resolution and highly accurate. Most of the current automated driving systems are limited to highway driving. To enable automated driving systems, they need to accurately recognize the entire road environment around the vehicle.
