CRASH AVOIDANCE: LOOKING FORWARD TO REAR-END COLLISIONS

By far, the most promising light vehicle crash avoidance research is in the area of rear-end collisions. The rear-end crash avoidance systems currently under development operate by using radar, lasers, or other remote sensors to determine the distance to and relative speed of the leading vehicle. This article discusses the development of the crash avoidance systems at the Volpe Center, and the use of the General Estimates System database to devise pre-crash scenarios.
