Objectives:

The research considered the various developments on braking systems, and the ability of the technology in the vehicle to control braking.

Methodology:

The team of researchers considered many systems and reviewed accident data and modelled the impacts of reduced congestion and injury/fatality costs by accident reduction. A cost benefit analysis was conducted.

Key Findings:

  • At the time of publishing three lorry manufacturers were offering AEB systems and the study found there was a better cost benefit ratio for the use of this type of system on HGVs than cars due to greater impacts should an accident occur.

Keywords:

Autonomous Emergency Braking AEB, Adaptive Cruise Control ACC, Traction Control TC, Brake Assist BA.

Comments:

This document found that Autonomous Emergency Braking systems do have a positive effect and should be further developed and implemented.
