IIHS adds digital safety system/improves lighting system for cars

according to foreign media reports, the number of pedestrian deaths in traffic accidents has been rising in recent years, and car safety advocates and government regulators are committed to solving this problem. In the past 10 years, this figure has increased by nearly 50% to nearly 6000 people every year. Experts warn that this figure may continue to rise due to various factors

but 11. Driven by servo electromechanical system: the electromechanical system drives the electric cylinder to load the pedal. A new study recently released by the Insurance Institute for highway safety emphasizes a response measure, that is, the introduction of a new digital safety system, which can detect pedestrians and automatically perform braking operation, so as to prevent pedestrian collision accidents and reduce the severity of other collision accidents. Another measure is to improve the lighting system so that drivers can see more clearly and have more time to react

the association has tested 11 small SUVs equipped with automatic emergency braking system (AEB). The system has also increased the ability to detect and respond to pedestrians in the vehicle path and participate in the Australian pilgangoora lithium mine project with us $20million. In the test, 4 vehicles were rated "excellent" and 5 vehicles were rated "advanced". Only one BMW X1 failed to obtain relevant recognition. Its system performance was so poor that it crashed the test dummy in the test

it is not surprising to start by testing SUVs. Overall, multi-function vehicles currently account for about two-thirds of U.S. car sales. But more importantly, a previous report by the American High Speed Highway Safety Insurance Association (IIHS) warned that vehicles with higher and sharper noses, such as SUVs and pickup trucks, are often more deadly in traffic accidents than cars and sports cars with lower and softer noses. That is to say, pedestrians hit by SUVs are less likely to fall off the vehicles, thus reducing injuries

according to federal data, from 2009 to 2017, the number of pedestrian deaths increased by 46%. Although the data of last year have not been released, it is expected to rise further, and the increase of multipurpose vehicles is only one of the reasons. Experts also worry that this situation is also caused by the distraction caused by digital technology. The driver may not be the only one staring at intelligence when driving. Many pedestrians do not check the traffic conditions when entering the intersection, or even do not pay attention to whether they can pass. In addition, poor road design has led to a significant increase in traffic since the end of the last recession

in September last year, the National Transportation Safety Commission convened experts in safety and industry to try to find a way to solve this problem. The staff of the committee pointed out that drug use and excessive urbanization also contributed to this situation. And the agency put forward 11 suggestions aimed at solving this problem. However, experts believe that the key to solving this problem lies in the need for vehicle design changes. For example, fully autonomous vehicles can ultimately reduce most traffic accidents

however, when the real driverless car can be launched has not been determined. Moreover, last year, there was an accident in which a prototype Uber auto driving test car killed passers-by. However, the latest IIHS research and data released also show that the advanced driver assistance system can really work

in addition, federal regulators are also considering updating the vehicle lighting regulations, which have not been changed since the 1970s. The current regulations are very "old". The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently began to develop rules to implement the prohibited adaptive high beam system (ADB) lighting technology in the United States. This technology can be used in Europe. It does not require the driver to switch between high beam and low beam. On the contrary, the sensor will block part of the light as required to avoid the glare of oncoming vehicles due to strong light

due to major changes in the rules, it may take several years for the rules to be updated. It is expected that the adaptive high beam system technology will not be realized on the roads of the United States within two years of the latest vortex flowmeter. In addition, other lighting technologies such as laser headlights are also under development. In Europe, this technology can detect obstacles nearly half a mile away, but the laser power of this technology in the U.S. market is severely limited
