Intelligent Vehicles: Efforts to Make Cars Safer by Making Them Smarter
Tremendous improvements have been made in vehicle safety over the past 30 years. However, only recently has the focus shifted from accident mitigation to accident prevention. This talk will focus on “intelligent” approaches to improving roadway safety, including an overview of the current state-of-the-art in commercial vehicles, a review of recent research, and details on the ArosDyn project.
