Even with a declining trend in traffic fatalities in the United States and Japan during the last decade, every year tens of thousands of lives are lost to traffic accidents. These accidents are often the result of driver error that could be avoided through improved driver performance and judgment.
Considering the contribution of human factors to accident causation, various stakeholders are working to ensure improved safety via advanced safety technologies. Examples of these cutting-edge technologies include advanced emergency braking systems and vehicle-to-vehicle communication. This seminar will present the latest developments in the U.S. and Japan, such as self-driving cars, and discuss how technology is contributing to traffic safety.
