Market Forces: Andrew Miller, Current President and Chairman of the Board of Directors at Euro NCAP, Explains the Role the Organization Will Play in Increasing the Safety of Highly Automated Vehicles

This article features an interview with Andrew Miller, current president and chair of the board of directors at the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP), a European car safety performance assessment program based in Brussels (Belgium). In addition to his work with Euro NCAP, Andrew Miller is chief technical officer (CTO) at Thatcham Research, an organization funded by United Kingdom automotive insurers. Mr. Miller notes that, beyond 2020, Euro NCAP’s focus will be on automated vehicles, as the automobile industry works to reduce and eliminate driver error. Topics covered include Euro NCAP’s 5-star standard, simulation research, vehicle range and independence, standards for human-machine interfaces (HMI), and addressing public fears. One sidebar summarizes some of the projects currently being undertaken at Thatcham Research, notably the Volvo Drive Me London project and modeling the impact of autonomous technologies on future insurance claims.
