The effect of advanced automatic collision notification (AACN) on road fatality reduction in Sweden

This paper aims at estimating the effect of the Advanced Automatic Collision Notification (AACN) post-crash system on road fatality reduction in Sweden. The analysis was based on the Swedish Traffic Accident Data Acquisition (STRADA) database in combination with in-depth studies of fatal accidents. Logistic regression with backward selection was used to identify relevant variables and develop a statistical model. The variables "admission to trauma center', "age' and "injury severity' were identified as significant and by applying the final model on fatalities in passenger cars the estimated fatality reduction due to AACN was calculated. AACN was estimated to potentially reduce road fatalities by 8.6% (95% CI = -0.3-16.4%).
