Vulnerable Road Users & Collision Mitigation


 

Collision mitigation and pre-crash protection systems focus on reduction of injuries and fatalities in case of unavoidable crashes (in particular on the last 2-3 seconds before the impact). Collision mitigation by braking significantly reduces kinetic energy of impact, thereby greatly reducing crash severity. Pre-crash road user protection systems based on structural measures (such as adaptable crash boxes) can be effectively applied to extend the crumple zone of vehicles. Structural design could significantly reduce intrusion of mechanical components into the passenger compartment during a crash.
