Research project presentations, discussing the topic of active safety, given during the 2011 Safety Technology Seminar by CSRC engineers and CSRC partners.

University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI)
Pre-Collision System Performance Evaluation
This two-year project will be conducted along three parallel tracks, including research into test scenarios and procedures, research to develop the standard surrogate target and validation testing, and the development of recommended test procedures.

Transportation Active Safety Institute (TASI)
Pedestrian PCS Scenarios and Naturalistic Data Collection
A five-year study to develop testing protocols for automotive PCS designed to prevent pedestrian-related car accidents. The study will draw on available crash data in NHTSA databases and original vehicle testing to develop more sophisticated and realistic test scenarios for PCS with the goal of improving pedestrian safety.

Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
Lane Departure Warning Benefit Estimation
A three-year study to evaluate the safety benefits of Lane Departure Warning (LDW) Systems and develop collision scenarios that can be used to effectively compare the technology across different makes and models.
