Monitoring the past and the future of a passenger car auto brake system.

City Safety is a collision avoidance technology that senses vehicles in front of the car. Both the previous and recent version of the system, operating at speeds up to 30 km/h and 50 km/h respectively, was evaluated. Distribution of crashes avoided and mitigated was calculated as well as the relative difference between the injury outcome for vehicles with and without system activation. With the recent City Safety version that operates at speeds up to 50 km/h, increased benefits were found in terms of crashes mitigated as well as in soft tissue neck injuries reduced compared to City Safety operating at speeds up to 30 km/h.
