IIHS proposes to increase digital safety system for cars/improve lighting system to reduce the number of pedestrian crash deaths

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%, reaching nearly 6000 people every year. Experts warned that due to various factors, this figure may continue to rise

however, 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 brake, prevent pedestrian crashes and reduce the severity of other crashes. Another measure is to improve the lighting system so that drivers can see more clearly and have more time to react

the association tested 11 small SUVs equipped with automatic emergency braking system (AEB), which also increased the ability to detect and respond to pedestrians in the vehicle path. In the test, four cars were rated "excellent" and five were rated "advanced". Only one BMW X1 failed to obtain relevant recognition, and its system performance was so bad that it crashed the test dummy in the test

it is not surprising to start with testing SUVs. In general, multi-function vehicles currently account for about two-thirds of the United States. But more importantly, a previous report of the American Highway Safety Insurance Association (IIHS) has reminded that vehicles with higher and sharper noses, such as SUVs and pickups, are often more deadly in traffic accidents than cars and sports cars with lower and softer noses, that is, pedestrians hit by SUVs are less likely to roll off the vehicle, thereby reducing injuries

federal data show that the number of pedestrian deaths increased by 46% from 2009 to 2017. 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, and the driver may not be the only 3 New breakthroughs have been made in innovation. Staring at intelligent people while driving is also an important reason why many pedestrians do not check the traffic conditions when entering the intersection, or even pay attention to whether they can pass. In addition, poor road design has also led to a sharp 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 to change the design of vehicles. 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 the prototype car of Uber self driving test killed passers-by. However, the latest IIHS research and data released by Maanshan Iron and Steel Co., Ltd. also showed that the advanced driver assistance system can indeed play a role

in addition, federal regulators are also considering the problems of low industry concentration to update 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 formulate 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 need the driver to switch between high beam and low beam. On the contrary, the sensor will block part of the light as needed to avoid the glare of oncoming vehicles due to strong light

due to the significant changes in the s-s5000ii automatic double number display spring tension and compression testing machine issued by the rules, it may be several years before the rules can be updated. It is expected that the adaptive high beam system technology will not be realized on the roads of the United States in the recent oneortwo years. In addition, other lighting technologies such as laser headlights are also in the process of research and 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 seriously limited
