The pathway to automated driving is building on and combining experiences with Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) that help to avoid collisions. Avoiding collisions begins with the fundamental primary safety performance of the vehicle; braking, handling, field of view, lighting and the ergonomics of the Human Machine Interface (HMI).
Our principal engineer is experienced with technologies and the design of test procedures in each field. A selection of example projects he has been involved with are listed below:
Good vehicle performance is fundamental to safety, but the way that humans interact with systems can affect safety too. Sophisticated electronics and computing power are now contributing to ADAS, forming the building blocks leading towards driverless vehicles; with huge safety potential at all levels of ADAS to automation.
However, there are also risks and barriers to introduction and prioritising those with the highest benefit, lowest costs and lowest risks can be very difficult. Our principal engineer also has significant experience in developing policy in this area:
Creating regulatory standards for Brake Assist Systems (BAS)
Evaluating the potential of new mechanisms to protect pedestrians
Investigating the technical requirements, costs and benefits of auomated emergency brake systems
A study of lane departure warnings and lane change assist systems
