A CONCEPTUAL FRAMEWORK FOR ACTIVE SAFETY IN ROAD TRAFFIC

This paper focuses on the concept of active safety in road traffic. It first presents a review of automotive safety. Active safety is then discussed in the form of a fault tree. The potential of artificial recognition of the vehicle's traffic environment and the implications this may have on human factors is discussed. Finally the author describes an Adaptive Cruise Control system as an example of the driver support system.
