Testing and Evaluation Methods for ICT-based Safety Systems

Objective

Going forward to accident free traffic, evaluation and standardised testing methods of ICT-based safety systems are essential. The main focus of the proposed research project is to define objective evaluation and testing methods for ICT-based safety systems. Performance test results presented to the public will help to promote the use of ICT-based safety systems. The project is based on safety systems used in today's vehicles and will investigate the future upcoming ICT-based systems. Aims are to identify evaluation and testing methods, especially for active safety systems, with respect to the user needs, the environment and economic aspects.

The presence of standardised test and evaluation methods will allow the assessment of a vehicle's overall safety performance with respect to the ICT-based safety systems. This possibility will increase the public awareness of the benefit that ICT-based safety systems have on road safety. Widespread awareness of ICT-based safety systems' performance will lead to a higher degree of acceptance for such systems and thus to increased market penetration and ultimately to a reduction of road fatalities.
