Description of Paper:
In the strive for our vision of accident free driving much progress has been made at the BOSCH Group in the area of active and passive safety systems. A variety of crash avoiding or severity mitigating systems have been launched to the markets so far gaining valuable benefit. In this paper we point out the crash avoiding and crash severity mitigating potential of advanced systems using surround sensor information by RADAR and video vision technologies. Later on we discuss their additional potential to be exploited in the future. On the one hand the technical challenges have to be mastered to improve the benefit of the state of the art safety systems. On the other hand onward progresses of standardization and regulation are considered necessary to set a reliable legal framework for the rollout and market launch of advanced systems providing extended benefit within the unexploited fields of effect in traffic accident statistics.
