  title={Potential Benefits of Autonomous Emergency Braking Based on In-Depth Crash Reconstruction and Simulation},
  author={Robert Anderson and Sam D Doecke and J R Mackenzie and Giulio Ponte},
The objective of this study was to estimate the potential effectiveness of Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) systems using simulation of crashes drawn from Australian in-depth crash data. 104 crashes that occurred within 100 km of Adelaide, South Australia, were used to assess the potential effect of AEB systems. The crashes had been investigated at the scene, reconstructed to determine collision speeds, and in this study they were analyzed using simulation to estimate how collision speeds and… Expand

A robust estimation of the effects of motorcycle autonomous emergency braking (MAEB) based on in-depth crashes in Australia
The small difference between the baseline and variant case results demonstrates that the potential effects of MAEB computed from the cases described in in-depth crash reports are typically a good approximation, despite limitations of postcrash investigation. Expand
Impact speed and the risk of serious injury in vehicle crashes.
Impact speed was found to have a highly significant positive relationship to risk of serious injury for all impact types examined, and the importance of measures that reduce impacts speeds is emphasised, be they road designs, vehicle technologies or enforced speed limit reductions. Expand

Optimizing the safety-efficiency balancing of automated vehicle car-following.
The proposed balancing is aligned with the standard "Hand Rule" criterion to demonstrate that a duty of care has been met, in which a burden must be borne if it is less than the product of the probability of loss to a third party and the magnitude of loss. Expand


Pedestrian injury mitigation by autonomous braking.
The study documents that the effectiveness at reducing fatally (severely) injured pedestrians in frontal collisions with cars reached 40% (27%) at a field of view of 40 degrees, which led to only marginal improvements in effectiveness. Expand
