... from the manufacturer indicated that this was a result of running the AEB system in an "open loop" mode such that no actual braking took place. For example, Figure 7 shows one event where the AEB system initially demanded a deceleration of 4m/s². The system will check in the next instant and detect that no actual braking had occurred and that the vehicle was now closer to the hazard such that a higher level of deceleration is required to avoid a collision. ...

Objective: To estimate the number of collateral casualties associated with road users considered responsible for a road crash. Method: We analyzed the case series comprising all 790,435 road users involved in road crashes with victims in Spain from 2009 to 2013, recorded in a nationwide police-based registry. For each road user assumed to be res...
