The paper discusses a new approach in contactless crash detection combining measurements of vehicle dynamics, exteroceptive sensors and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication data. The proposed architecture aims to activate vehicle safety functions prior an imminent collision to minimize the risk of suffering a major injury. An activation needs a precise(More)
In this paper a cyber-physical system is proposed to detect and classify a vehicle-pedestrian collision before the time of impact in order to trigger safety functions. A device for pedestrian protection can be activated in case of a collision with an appropriate interpretation of the current situation by noncontact sensing. A system concept consisting of an(More)
Ahead of an unavoidable collision, the actual crash constellation and along with it, the crash severity can significantly change based on the driver actions. To justify the use of safety measures like airbags, prior to an accident, the severity of the predicted crash must be high enough and the crash severity prediction itself must be reliable. In this(More)
New vehicle safety systems have led to a steady improvement of road safety and a reduction in the risk of suffering a major injury in vehicle accidents. A huge leap forward in the development of new vehicle safety systems are actuators that have to be activated irreversibly shortly before a collision in order to mitigate accident consequences. The(More)
Compared to the state-of-the-art on integrated safety systems, earlier activated safety systems can further reduce the risk of suffering a major injury. Activation of such systems prior to a collision can be realized by analysing measurements of exteroceptive sensors (pre-crash data). An algorithm for estimating collisions in real-time using fused(More)
