Calspan secures Pedestrian Protection Testing Contract

The USDOT National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently awarded Calspan a contract to perform pedestrian protection testing. Pedestrian protection systems are vehicle safety systems designed to mitigate injury during a pedestrian s impact with a car. The sensors in front of the car react when the vehicle collides with a pedestrian, activating the safety system.

Manufacturers have Euro NCAP's Vision 2030 in Sight, as fifteen Cars score the maximum Star Rating

article imageEuro NCAP's releases the results for its largest group of cars this year and all, but one of the sixteen cars tested achieved Euro NCAP s maximum five-star rating. Testing a wide range of vehicles in a wide range of classes, the results show the determination of manufacturers to do well in Euro NCAP s protocols for this year. In 2023, the protocols take a turn for the tougher encouraging manufacturers to consider other road users in line with Euro NCAP's Vision 2030.

AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety celebrates 75 Years of saving Lives through Research and Education

article imageIt began with a meeting in a hotel room. On November 5th, 1947, six AAA board members and staff huddled at Washington D.C.'s famed Mayflower Hotel to forge something new. One of AAA's primary missions since its founding in 1902 was keeping roadways safe. The organization launched one of its first traffic safety initiatives in 1922 with the school safety patrol program. That prompted other safety-related programs, including a landmark effort to reverse the soaring pedestrian fatality rate during the 1930s. But there was a sense that more needed to be done.

Autobrake slashes Rear-end Crash Rates for Pickups, but few are equipped

article imageAutomatic emergency braking (AEB) reduces rear-end crash rates for pickups dramatically, a new study from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety shows. But despite the heightened danger they pose to other road users, pickups are less likely to be equipped with the crash avoidance feature than cars or SUVs.

Infineon introduces new CMOS Transceiver MMIC CTRX8181 with high Performance, Scalability and Reliability for Automotive Radar

article imageA high-performance and reliable radar module is the key to an improved automated driving assistance system and autonomous driving in the future. New features, such as advanced emergency braking systems (AEBs) that react to crossing motorcyclists, will demand higher performance and increased modules per car. Key drivers for this growth are NCAP programs and legislation.

TNO and Torc Robotics collaborate to Use Real-world Data for Autonomous Truck Validation

article imageTNO announced a strategic collaboration with Torc Robotics, an independent subsidiary of Daimler Truck. They are working together to substantiate the safety of self-driving trucks using scenario-based safety validation. TNO's StreetWise, a safety validation methodology based on a real-world scenario database, provides a large collection of "driving events". The methodology is designed to test and validate autonomous driving systems performance according to the latest safety requirements.

New Road Safety Research identifies Gaps in Driver Awareness

article imageTransurban surveyed 5,000 Australian and North American drivers to understand their driving behaviours that impact road safety. What Trransurban found shows more education is needed on all four driving behaviours Transurban explored. Transurban also found that drivers don't always realise they re getting safety wrong.
