Target Crash Population for Crash Avoidance Technologies in Passenger Vehicles

This report documents an approach used to establish crash populations (or target crash populations) for five groups of collision avoidance technologies in passenger vehicles: (1) forward collision prevention, (2) lane keeping, (3) blind zone detection, (4) forward pedestrian impact, and (5) backing collision avoidance. These technologies, categorized as SAE Level 0–1 driving automation systems have been increasingly offered by vehicle manufacturers under a variety of marketing terminologies. Passenger vehicles defined here include cars, cross-overs, SUVs, light trucks and vans with gross vehicle weight ratings (GVWR) 10,000 lbs and under.
