Kent County Council has revealed details of its strategy to eliminate road fatalities by 2050.
Kent County Council UK has announced the launch of a new road safety strategy designed to decrease road fatalities. Thatcham Research and Volvo Trucks teamed up to demonstrate ADAS and AEB systems in action using a Volvo truck and Moshon Data’s EVT dummy vehicle target. The demonstration raises awareness of AEB by showing how the system is programmed to automatically bring a vehicle to a halt whenever it detects a target in the road, therefore lowering the risk of collision.
Steve Boyle, Managing Director of Oxfordshire-based Moshon Data, explains how the company has been looking into various approaches to approve advances and develop the technology of AEB with views of making it safer in the future.
In a bid to improve road safety, the strategy focuses on encouraging businesses that use lorries and vans to purchase vehicles with the best possible safety equipment / ADAS systems.
Iain Knight of Apollo Vehicle Safety notes, “Modern ADAS technology is already proving its ability to protect both drivers and other road users. Automated Emergency Braking is a key technology in pursuit of Vision Zero.”
